One stormy morning Mocha, a 5 year old Pit Bull Terrier, slipped out of her yard and was hit by a passing car. When our team arrived at the clinic, they met Mocha’s mom in the parking lot and carried her in through the downpour. The poor dog appeared seriously injured and in a great deal of pain. Luckily, Mocha only sustained some muscle bruising and some lung contusions. Mocha recovered with pain management, rest and supportive care. Mocha’s family wasn’t prepared for the unexpected vet bill and needed some help. We were able to cover part of Mocha’s expenses using a grant from the Synchrony Pillar Project and private donations to our Keeping Pets and People Together fund. For the remainder we helped Mocha’s owner create a payment plan that works with her budget, through VetBilling, which allowed her to make easy payments over six months. The good news is that Mocha is a survivor, although she is still recovering from the effects of her trauma, and she is back at home with her family.
