PRAY FOR: Cinnamon Sugar 7yo. Double hip dysplasia, seizures. Lord Jesus You know the overwhelming condition Cinnamon is suffering. We ask that You would help mom Tamara to make the best possible decisions on her behalf. We know that if it is Your will, she could be healed today and we ask for healing for her hips and nervous system. If You have other plans for them, we ask that You would make Your plans clear to mom Tamara and anyone else who is invested in Cinnamon’s life. Above all, we ask for Your mercy for this poor animal who is an innocent recipient of the irresponsible practices of the people who bred her. In the Name of Adonai Rapha. God our Healer. Amen. <3 Caren

Hi Caren, Cinnamon has developed some very serious medical issues. She needs a DOUBLE HIP REPLACEMENT ($13,000+) and a mysterious nerve condition which causes her sudden, random, and severe episodes of pain. When she has an episode, she literally screams in pain, and tries to run away from the imaginary source. Sometimes she loses her bowels, which you can tell embarrasses her, and she ends up limping with her front left paw off the ground. It takes several hours and up to a day for her to recover, not eating, whimpering and refusing to move until it passes. Testing and vet specialist visits have already totalled almost $6,000, and her current medications run approximately $250/mo. (See more below)

Exodus 15:26 And He said, “If you will give earnest heed to the voice of the LORD your God, and do what is right in His sight, and give ear to His commandments, and keep all His statutes,** I will put none of the diseases on you which I have put on the Egyptians; for I, the LORD, am your healer.” **If Jesus is our Lord and Savior we need only to believe fully in Him, then we will long to serve Him, He satisfied the law/commandments w/His sacrifice.

I’m not asking you or anyone else on your page to donate. People will do so if they feel inclined. Any help you can give getting her story out there would be very helpful. […] Thank you!

Cinnamon is 7 years old. For the last 5-6 years she has been bothered by her hind quarters. At first it seemed like a mild irritation, but the problem has continued to get worse and worse.

In mid-2017, the problem escalated seriously, with her being unable to get comfortable. She would quickly dart from place to place, trying to get away from the pain, or quickly turn and chew furiously at her hind quarters. In late 2017, she started having “pain attacks.” She would be sitting, walking, even sleeping and suddenly dart around with her hind quarter tucked under her, shrieking in pain. She wouldn’t let anyone touch her until the episode passed. The vet ran blood tests and took x-rays, and then consulted with an orthopedic surgeon.

The situation was dire. She has a severe case of hip dysplasia with advanced arthritis as a result. She needs a double hip replacement. We also started her on some medications for nerve pain, which at first were effective, but no longer. The episodes have continued to get worse and more frequent. At this point she is having 1-2 per week. They can last up to 30 minutes. 

She has now seen a vet neurologist and an orthopedic surgeon, and had a full body MRI, read by a radiologist. She needs that double hip replacement NOW. It can no longer wait. I’ve also consulted with a veterinary acupuncturist for pain management. There is no clear answer regarding the sudden pain episodes. We are still investigating multiple theories, but no one has seen anything like this before, and it does not seem related to her hip dysplasia.

Current/pending expenses are:

Double-hip replacement: $13,000 (surgery only)
Physical therapy and aftercare: $10,000
MRIs and other tests already run: $4,000
Monthly medications: $200/mo
Future vet/hospital bills: (unknown)
If you would like you to help, please ask God for His will for Cinnamon Sugar
