My name is Cassidy Pretorius, I am 25 years old and live in Durban, KwaZulu Natal. I am trying to raise funds for my dog Ollie, who I rescued earlier this year.
A few months after rescuing Ollie, I noticed a lump starting to form on his neck. I became immediately worried when he started showing discomfort and not being able to move his neck properly.
I took him to the vet and was overwhelmed with relief when they examined a sample of the growth and advised that it didn’t seem cancerous and that it was possibly just a cyst. I was given a course of medicine for him and gratefully home we went. During the course of the medicine his discomfort started to disappear and the growth started shrinking.
About immediately after the course of medicine was complete the growth started to grow, it is now about the size of a golf ball and is as hard as one too. The vet has advised that we will need to cut out the growth and send it off for examination as it will start to affect his neck and spine and could possibly lead to further problems. At this point we don’t know what it is and my heart is sad and worried for my little boy who has finally found happiness in life.
You will allow my little boy to live the long, happy life he, and every other doggo in this world deserves!
All funds will go directly to the vet for surgery and histopathology.
*Funds raised will be paid directly to the relevant institution*
