MSU’s IRONDOG Fund Helps Pay Vet Bills for Dogs

Last May, Lansing resident Matt Jones was faced with a choice: Pay $5,000 outright for his dog to have surgery, take out a loan or have his 3-year-old patterdale terrier, Reggin, put down. Jones had left Reggin with a friend while he traveled to Pittsburgh to propose to his girlfriend. When he got home, his dog started acting funny. Reggin was vigorously scratching himself. He threw up and he wouldn’t leave Jones’ or his fianceé’s side.

Jones took Reggin to the emergency room at the Michigan State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital. The dog wasn’t having an allergic reaction as Jones had suspected — he had eaten several feminine hygiene products and his digestive system was blocked.

Jones said he didn’t have $5,000 and his credit wasn’t good enough to qualify for the financing options offered through MSU. He couldn’t imagine life without Reggin. Click here for the rest of the story.
