Grape Needs an MRI

THE GOOD NEWS: Grape received his echocardiogram on 11/24/14 at Veterinary Specialty Services. He has a ventral septal defect that is functional. The cardiologist was not concerned and recommended no further treatment.

THE BAD NEWS: The vet was concerned about the fact that the breeder who had Grape allowed an ear infection to go untreated for over a year which has resulted in nervous system involvement (shaking of the head, tilt of the head, vestibular deficit, deafness, and eye involvement). While at VSS, we had the neurologist evaluate him, and he was diagnosed with otitis interna. Due to the severity of his condition, if left untreated, it could be fatal. The neurologist recommended an MRI to evaluate his condition to determine necessary treatment. Treatment options could include medication, or more likely for Grape, a surgical procedure called a bulla osteotomy. VSS estimated the cost of the MRI to run approximately $1,800 to $2,200. Please help us raise the funds for Grape’s MRI so that we can begin treatment!
