My two parakeets Greenie and Arty, and my cockatiel Starscream are undergoing 6 weeks of doxycycline injections for suspected psittacosis. Each visit costs $121 per bird. At the end of the treatment, my total will be $2178.
I had previously treated them with oral doxy (which prooved to be too stressful.) We also completed 2 rounds of doxy in water, which seemed to work, but the symptoms returned each time.
Weekly injects are the only way for me to insure my babies become healthy again. I have a high rent, and a low paying job in nonprofit poverty relief. I desperately need help paying for these bills in order for me to make my rent, utilities and food bills.
I would be so thankful to anyone who can donate to help me. I would be happy to share my bills with every donor and my vet is more than willing to send a personal email to every donor to reassure them that their money went to helping my angels.
Well, I have a fundraiser set up for my chickies.
An online friend, Julie, has been helping me with my birds. She has connected with some people who are donating towards my growing vet bill. I have set up a gofundme account in hopes of getting some donations.
I really do hate to ask, as I normally try to fundraise for other people. But I need your help. Even if you can’t donate, please share this with your friends! I would be forever grateful.
(Friends with a lot of followers, please please please reblog this. I will love you forever.)
