Help us save Bella!

This is our baby, Bella. She came to us 7 months ago as a rescue. Her life prior to our taking her was filled with unimaginable abuse. On December 18th, we took our baby Miss Bella to a local veterinarian. We knew she had a bump on her side but we had no idea what it was, and suddenly, she stopped eating. Due to our own financial shortcomings, the doctors were not able to perform many diagnostics, but they were kind enough to do an ultrasound to get a better idea of what was happening. Our poor baby has a growth on her spleen. It is causing her a large amount of pain, and she is no longer eating. We've been warned by the doctors that it could cause her to hemorrhage and bleed out internally, and if that doesn't happen, her lack of eating will kill her. They can not give us a time frame for exactly how long she has left without treatment until we are able to have them do more tests, but they do know that we are on limited time and need to act quickly.They cannot tell if the growth is cancerous or not, and until we have more funds, they can't tell us anything more other than she needs surgery to remove the mass. After all the ugliness she has lived in her life, she has been so happy and loving and excited about new adventures in a safe, happy, loving home and it's breaking my heart. She deserves a fighting chance and my new job doesn't start until mid January. They gave us a ballpark range of what it may cost, so that is what we've set our goal at. Anything that anyone can do, whether it's helping us share this page, or donating any amount, everything will help. She's our baby, and we have to give her the chance she deserves at life.

A diet that is grain-free might be an option. I had a rottweiler that was fed nothing but purina dry kibble. Over the years, she grew lumps everywhere. Based on research done on laboratory rats, gmo-grain diets were the cause of the lumps. GL!
