BENEFITING: SOUTHERN CROSS ANIMAL RESCUE
Lollie was brought to us on June 10th 2016. She had a huge mass under her tongue that looked to be a tumor. After getting several opinions from different vets, they all told us the same thing- Lollie has Salivary Mucocele. A salivary mucocele is an accumulation of saliva in the tissues outside of the salivary gland. The cause of this condition is due to a rupture of the duct that drains saliva from the salivary glands to the mouth. Surgery is her only option to survive. A number of important nerves and large blood vessels will be encountered, which must not be cut. As a result, the surgeon must be very familiar with the anatomy. Our local vet referred us to Mississippi State Veterinary Collage. Lollie went to MSU on June 21, 2016. This is a very expensive surgery and unfortunately SCAR does not have the funds to cover it. We are reaching out to our community to ask for help to save Lollie! She is a gorgeous, sweet, young girl who gets along with everyone. In the short amount of time we have had her, our staff has fallen in love. We owe it to her to get her the help she needs. If you can donate, please do. No amount is too small!
