My beloved Odie has severe glaucoma and needs to have both of his eyes removed. Who knows how long he has lived with this. Odie's eyes have alway been this way since I met him. I am happy to have a little eyeless puppy but it is cost prohibitive to take care of this on my own.
Surgery for Odie's eyes is $2000. I am hoping that I can do the surgery December 30th. WIth your help I know that we can heal Odie's eyes even though it doesn't mean that he will see again.
What?s the problem?
Odie had severe glaucoma in both eyes. This is breed and age issue.
How will you solve it?
The solution is for both right and left eyes to be removed surgically.
What makes you and your group capable?
As his new and last owner I want Odie to be the most comfortable he can be for the rest of his life. He has sufftered through so much unkown trauma and has lost people that truly loved him. Odie is a super sweet boy and I want him to be happy and comfortable.
How much will it cost?
Surgery for Odie's eye removal costs $2500.
Who is Odie?
Odie is a 10 year old Shih-Tzu that I adopted May 23, 2011. He was surrendered to CACC sometime in 2010 and was rescued from there by Thee Fish Bowl in Evanston. He spent almost 6 months in the loving care of the staff of Thee Fish Bowl.
Odie has changed my life as much has his has changed through these circumstances. Never having had a dog before, Odie has been the best teacher.
