Help Jango the Jug on his Road to Recovery

Hello guys and pupper frens,

Jango is a 10 month old Jack Russell x Pug who has brought joy and happiness to everyone who has met him, along with his 3.5k followers on Instagram. As well as being super cute and such a funny boy, he acts like an emotional support dog to myself. After suffering from anxiety and panic attacks for years, Jango has really boosted my confidence in times of stress and manages to calm me down when my anxiety gets really bad. As well as this, I am type 1 diabetic and Jango is able to go and alert my mum when my blood is low and let her know that I need assistance. He really has made a massive difference in my life and I cannot thank him enough for being the clever, wonderful boy that he is.

Jango is a little miracle, he's brought people out of bad times in their life, cheered people up when they are sad, stayed by people's side when they are unwell and even cured someone's phobia of dogs. He is honestly the best thing that has ever happened to me and I don't know where I'd be without him!


Unfortunately, Jango has taken very unwell. He was having bouts of sickness and diarrhoea with no sign of possible cause. After many vet appointments, they initially thought he was suffering from IBD as scans and x-rays showed some inflammation in his stomach area. Things got worse, and he was admitted again, to which the vets then thought after several blood tests that he could be suffering from pancreatitis. They had to operate and go into his stomach and surrounding organs to confirm this but everything there looked fine, yet he was still being sick and deteriorating. He has had stomach biopsies taken and we are waiting for those results. Unfortunately, he has to stay in on a drip to keep him hydrated and he is not allowed home until the cause of all this pain and discomfort is found. He is set to have yet another surgery to see if the issue is somewhere further up in his body and if nothing is found he will have to go to a specialist vet hospital for further tests.

Due to being sick in the first 14 days of coming home, our insurance has cancelled all claims relating to any gastrointestinal issues, so we are left with a massive bill already. Of course, we are doing absolutely everything we can to get him diagnosed and home safe and sound but any help from his lovely friends would mean so so much. We are already looking at close to 3k in vet bills due to tests, scans, x-rays, medication, overnight stays at the vet, and surgeries and possibly more if he has to move to the specialist vet hospital. 

All we want is to have our boy home and we know how many of you have been touched by Jango in his little time on this earth. Even if all of his pawesome followers gave just £1 each we would be able to cover the vet bill so far, so honestly any donation, no matter how little will be greatly appreciated.
