I adopted the most lovable rescue dog 3 year's ago. The poor dog (Bobbi) was in terrible shape. His tail was so infected that it was black with a terrible odour from infection. Within 3 days of adopting Bobbi I took him to the vet. The vet advised sadly that Bobbi's tail required amputation. He further advised that a tail is important to a dog and he had never performed one before. The vet also informed me that Bobbi would require numerous dental extractions.eventually.> Overall poor Bobbi was in bad shape.
The amputation was completed the same week. When I picked up Bobbi after his surgery he was like a new dog, even with his sutures and staples. He was perky, sweet, gentle and lovable instantly.
Bobbi has just reached 10 year's old and has been the most wonderful companion and so kind and loving.. Sadly another infection hit Bobbi a few week's ago regarding his teeth. I took him to the vet immediately who advised that Bobbi needed to have all his teeth extracted. Bobbi was immediately put on antibiotics and painkillers. Unfortunately I have been unable to come up with the money to pay for his dental work. Most vets charge by the minute when it comes to dental surgery and would not accommodate any kind of payment plan.
The vet advised that if left too long the infection can spread to his other organs. I have just received another round of antibiotics for poor Bobbi as the infection has come back. This poor dog has gone through so much. I have also found out that I am at minimum,Bobbi's fourth owner.
This dog deserves better than he received in the past. Unfortunately due to my own health issues presently I am unable to fund his surgery.this time. I hope and pray that there is a dog lover or vet out there that can assist me with this dental surgery. Please help save my poor sweet dog's life.
Thank you for taking the time to read Bobbi's story.
Bobbi and Denise
