Jasper is a three and a half year old Jack Russell, he loves going for runs, his tennis balls, and loves more than anything having snuggles with myself (his mummy!) and his Auntie Lisa. Jasper hurt his back last week and has had vert treatment and painkillers given to his through the PDSA in Gateshead who have been fantastic. However, he is now struggling worse than ever with pain and not wanting to eat or drink. He needs an MRI to find out what the problem is which is going to cost up to £2000 and may then require surgery to save his life, the surgery could cost up to an additional £5000. I'm a student who lives off disability allowance. I don't have that kind of money and the only other option the vets have given is for Jasper to be PTS (I can't even bring myself to type that properly). I'm an absolute wreck and have no where else to turn other than to here to ask for help from my family, friends, and strangers to help us pay initially for the MRI and then potentially for the surgery if they think that it would help and that he would have a good quality of life afterwards, however the MRI is urgent to first find out what is causing his pain. I have to fight for this, I can't let my boy go without knowing I have done absolutely everything I can to try to save him first. Please please help me help my boy. He is my whole world and I don't know if I could cope without him. It isn't something I can even comprehend.
