You've been saying as long as you have been a member that you don't have the money for this and that... first training for a past dog. Then multiple times times, vet care for Bella over the 6 or so months you have had her.

Frankly most dogs at some point are going to need emergency care. We all understand that and we understand people can fall on tough times. BUT you chose to get a puppy without a job or income allowing for much extra (at least that is the impression you have given). Two different scenarios...

As for rehoming, it was just a couple days ago you yourself, said it was a possibility (mother telling you) as Bella is still not housetrained.

Anyway, really the take away is this...
This forum is not the place to seek emergency veterinary advice. If you do, members are going to tell you to call or go to the vet. Most members do not have the expertise to be offering diagnosis and detailed advice. Those that do, are not likely to give such info as they cannot examine your dog. So DO NOT get upset or argue when given the advice to talk to or visit a vet.

Should something ever actually happen to Bella, it is your legal obligation as her owner to get her veterinary care. Not doing so is neglect. Neglect is very likely illegal in your location and is a rule violation here.

With all that said, I'm closing this thread as I don't see anything good coming from it if left open. If you have any questions then you may ask in the ''Talk to the Team'' section of the forum.

I am glad to hear that Bella is okay. That could have been a very scary situation very quickly.

I have to say that I think timber does have a bit of a point though. I'm struggling with money. I live practically paycheck to paycheck right now just to pay my bills. Though when I got Aayla I took a long time analyzing my finances. I made sure I could pay for all of her Routine care, plus always have an emergency fund in savings. I have $2000 that I never touch. That is my minimal in case of emergency funding. That is mainly for Aayla, so if she ever needs emergency vet care its there for her. Some weeks I'm living off ramen, I won't touch her emergency fund. I know sometimes things happen, cars break down, you loose a job and so on. I don't think that is an excuse for not providing your dog emergency vet care. IMO that is basic care. By law in the USA not providing vet care is animal cruelty through negligence.

If you are going to be having an internship in the summer (starting in June?) you have 6 months you could be working. Its not the best situation but if you need money for Bella then get it. Put a little in savings in case something happens and you need to take care of her.

Technically you are not aloud to bury any animals (or people) without special permits. It can contaminate ground water, so vets and shelters are obligated to take the bodies and have them cremated.
