    Unfortunately, not everyone can foresee certain events. I like how no one stops to think that they're may have been fine in terms money until say, a week ago when his father lost his job (for example, I don't know when his father lost his job).

    If anyone's seen my thread on my work rant, they should know I haven't had any income for a little while now. If my dog falls desperately ill tomorrow, I won't be able to afford his treatment. That doesn't mean he won't see a vet (nor, from what I can ascertain, will ollie's dog go without treatment). That's the benefit of payment plans. I'm certainly not going to get rid of my dog because a few people on the internet have never run into money troubles or think I'm a horrible dog owner.


    Edit: I should also add, getting a dog with no money saved or no income is totally different. I try to not assume the worst in people, however.

    Hopefully the OP sees this and realises that there are ways around money troubles.
    I hope you take your dog to the vet asap.

    ohh i hope i'm wrong.. but imo it's seems to be a wind up & the OP's story sounds very familiar...

    Remember Kassie ??????....she to was only 16 & her parents couldn't afford Vet's care for their sick/unwell Stafford !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I thought ollie's english and grammer was a step up from Kassie's xD

    I hope you're wrong too, Aussie. This forum needs less trolls and more people looking for help or information (and willing to give it, of course).

    Has your mum come back yet? Do you have the number for the closest vet to your place?

    Hey Ollie,

    I'm afraid I don;t understand your post that well. When you touch her she/he screams? Only today, since the different food last night, or has this been happening (the screaming when being touched) for a while?

    School goes for more than two hours, so are you sure this hasn't had more hours to esculate?

    Could be a minor reaction to food change, but could also be a heck of a lot of other very major things.

    More details please???

    I would be taking her to the vet ASAP, could be something serious like a blockage in the bowel or something, perhaps by swallowing something. Surly there is someone that could lend you the money, a grandparent aunt even a friends parent?? You could maybe work the money off by offering to do lawns or babysitting. I know sometimes things happen unexpectedly, but this puppy sounds like she is suffering. Perhaps if you cant find any other option, then maybe as hard it may be surrendering the puppy and telling them why might be the best option. Good luck and I hope it all works for you

    Call your vet and tell the them exactly what you have told us. A call is free, do it ASAP.
