    Hi everyone,

    Our Bernese Mountain Dog, Beau, has recently had surgery for intussusception. Intussusception is a condition in which the intestine fold in upon itself, causing blockages, swelling, and eventually decay of the intestine, if it's not caught early enough. Luckily, the vet caught it in time, and Beau went in for surgery and came out well. Unfortunately, two weeks after the surgery, Beau stopped eating and started vomitting. We were worried about complications from the surgery, and took him in for examination. The vet is running diagnostic tests to figure out what the issue is, but they are very expensive.

    We were able to cover the cost of his initial surgery, but we need to ask for help with this second set of costs. The vet estimates the total diagnosis and treatment to come out to around $2500 or more, so any help would be tremendously appreciated. If theres is any extra money from this campaign, we will put it aside for any future medical bills for Beau.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. If you are able to contribute, we will be so grateful to you, and if you cannot, please share this for us.
