Pets We Have Helped

Choco's Story

Choco, a lively 1-year-old Chihuahua, broke his leg in a car accident. His family took him to a local emergency center where he got his initial care, but his condition required urgent surgical intervention. His family could not afford the surgery, after paying the unexpected emergency bills. They called the CVMA Foundation for help.

A CVMA member veterinarian accepted Choco as a patient. And, with the assistance of the Foundation, Choco was saved. Since his leg sustained non-repairable injuries, it had to be amputated.

Even though he lost his leg, Choco is with his family, happy, healthy and very much ALIVE!

"Thank you, CVMF, for helping our little Choco. He is a happy boy again!"~Choco's Mama







Moreo's Story

Moreo arrived to the pet hospital feeling sick as a dog! His owner noticed he was drinking a great deal of water and was becoming increasingly lethargic. His regular CVMA veterinarian ran some tests and diagnosed Moreo not only with diabetes, but also with a severe complication called diabetic ketoacidosis, which is a life-threatening condition. Since his illness was so serious, Moreo required hospitalization and intensive care.

His owner, a single mother struggling to make ends meets, could not afford his care. With the help of the CVMA Foundation, Moreo received the care he needed to save his life.

Today, Moreo is thriving at home with his family, where he will continue to receive the loving and dedicated care he needs.

"Thank you, CVMF, for helping me to pay Moreo's medical bills. It was such a relief to be able to take him home to recover." ~Cynthia
