I need surgery to remove the infected pericardium around my heart to save my life.

Main image

My name is Nina and I’m a 17 month old , beautiful German Shepard.

I need to surgery to save my life, the sack around my heart (the pericardium) fills with fluid, putting pressure on my heart an lungs, suffocating me and stopping the circulation on my blood. I have had this fluid removed twice this week already to stop me from dying.

I feel lethargic and I can’t play with my family. I also can’t eat, fluid starts to build up in my stomach which makes going to the toilet difficult, as u can imagine this is makes my life very painful.

Am only young & want to be with my family for a few more years yet. I know they love me so much hence why my family are doing everything they can. Going to sleep for ever is not an option for me as I think my daddy won’t handle it, mummy probably cry as will my older human sisters and their friends. Please help me.
