PDE? Dex Needs A Spinal Tap!

Dexter's Story:

On Wednesday, November 6th, Dexter suffered a seizure at 5:00 in the morning. I immediately rushed him to my local vet and she ran various tests. All of his bloodwork came back fine! Thank the Lord! But then, I received the news that he might have PDE - Pug dog encephalitis. To say the least, I was devastated! My vet suggested that we rule out the possibility of PDE by having a spinal tap performed. The test alone costs $3000 and being a single school teacher, I, unfortunately, do not have the immediate funds for such a test. My vet directed me to and encouraged me to sign up and ask for assistance. I was hesitant, at first. I am not one to accept assistance, and I always pay my own way, but Dexter is my baby and I feel as though I must reach out and ask for help at this point in time.


All Chances complete 30 days after they are first Submitted for Verification by the Pet Owner. The reason they end at all is because credit card refunds must be issued if the funds cannot be raised and, therefore, the treament will not be provided.

So, if a Chance will not be fulfilled by a doctor/provider within 30 days, the money must be refunded to the people who made donations.

Shortly before the Chance completion date Pet Chance will try to work with the doctor/provider to see if the treatment can be fulfilled with partial funding.

Our goal is to fullfil as many Chances as possible!

We call it Pet Care Assurance...

At Pet Chance, our goal is to empower pet owners to make the right decisions for their pets. By funding Chances where owners have already incurred debt we are giving the next owner facing that daunting decision confidence to provide their pet with the care it needs.

The more Chances where treatment was already provided to get funded, the more likely it is owners (and vets) will make the right medical decision first, and handle the financial obligation after the fact.
