This is a tough and utterly lovable German Shepherd Dog named Jerry Lee, who at just 17 months of age, has visited the vet over 30 times!
As a puppy, Jerry Lee began to experience significant weight loss. He wasn't eating properly and not growing appropriately for his age. Suffering from diarrhoea and vomiting, what really concerned everyone was that he just didn’t have the energy of a puppy. But even through numerous blood tests, x-rays and ultrasounds, Jerry Lee was a brave pup and never complained.
After exploratory surgery and a biopsy, Jerry Lee was unluckily diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). As treatment can be very complicated and costly, it really placed both an emotional and financial strain on Jerry Lee's family.
Thanks to Petplan, this financial burden was significantly reduced and has so far saved Jerry Lee's family over $15,500*. Once he recovers, Jerry Lee is going to be a big TV star on CTV and enjoy all the things he likes doing most – Including playing tug of war, chasing sticks and guarding his section from the birds.
