Mariah A. W.
Review for RedRover, Sacramento, CA, USA
Maia has been sick for a few weeks now, started out with no eating or drinking. Which I found out she had a fever, started her on antibiotics and pain meds, which didn't change much. A handful of days later I came home to blood on the back of Maia's leg and spots through out my apartment. Took her into the vet for that to find out she had an abscess that burst. So got that cleaned up and brought her home staying on the antibiotics and cleaning the wound every night.
When I got home last night I noticed her abscess had grown in size quite a bit, I immediately starting internet searching on what would need to be done and the cost of it, which I then did two things. I applied for a care credit card and was approved. But I also put in an application to Red Rover Relief, which is a organization that helps covering vet bills when you are struggling to yourself. In the morning I called the vet first thing and they told me to come in to get it looked at. They determined it needed to be cleaned and stitched up.
I was happy to know they could help, but I immediately started to stress about how I was going to pay for such a procedure. I left Maia with the vet and went to work. A few hours into work I get a call telling me Maia's surgery went well and that I should be able to pick her up in the morning. Immediately after I get a call from Red Rover Relief saying they want to help. The amount of stress that left my body from that one phone call is unbelievable, I cannot thank them enough for their help in getting Maia better, and making sure I can keep my best friend and make sure she is healthy.
