Story
I got Ladybird when I was in the Air Force impulsively. She was good and healthy for a couple of years. All of a sudden she developed a really bad skin condition I have been dealing with for a few years. It gets so bad that I have to clean the house every two days. And she has to go to the vet every other month for new medications. I am on a fixed income (VA disability) and I unfortunately can not take on her vet bills for much longer.
