PLEASE can everyone spare a thought for VALERIE today who you may remember came into us at the beginning of September 2015. She is an amazing little girl who has been on a long and painful recovery process but she has never lost her sparkle 🙂 When she came to us she had been over-bred and was suffering with a potentially fatal disease called pyometra, as well as polyps in both ears. Our most urgent concern was the pyometra, so she has since been speyed and is recovered enough for us to now deal with her very poorly ears 😦

The Vet thinks that this brave little girl has had untreated ear infections for possibly 2-3 years which has led to the polyps that have all but closed her ear canals! She has already had one operation to try to help her, but unfortunately we have no choice but to have her ear canals removed if she is to live a pain free life. So, today she is undergoing the first of two operations to do just that… They’re operating on her right ear first as this is the worst one (as you can see in the picture), but the surgery itself will be very painful for her and we wish her a speedy recovery…

If you meet this little girl you can’t help but be amazed at what a lovely, affectionate nature she has despite her pain; but when you see how sore and swollen her ears are, your heart just aches for her because all she wants is to love and be loved 😥

The procedure she is having is a Total Ear Canal Ablation (TECA) and a Lateral Bulla Osteotomy (LBO) and her vet fees for these two operations will be in the region of £2,800. At Wellidog we NEVER give up on any dog whilst there is a chance to give them a healthy, happy life but occasionally we do struggle with our larger vet fees. This loving, forgiving, and absolutely adorable girl has never shown anything but love to those dedicated to helping her, and getting her back on her paws again 🙂 Can you PLEASE HELP US to HELP VALERIE by donating towards her Vet fees? No matter how much you can manage it all helps, and every amount donated means that we can continue to help other dogs who through no fault of their own, find themselves in our care…
