This week WCGHS has incurred an unexpected large veterinary expense for our dog shelter resident Inspector, and will soon have another one for our senior dog Kona.
Last week Inspector needed a tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO) surgery to repair an ACL tear in his leg. Even with the nonprofit discount provided by Animal Care Clinic in Vancouver, his pre-op and surgery cost $2690. Inspector is now recovering from surgery in a crate to help him remain calm and allow his leg to heal without re-injury.
Ten year old Kona has developed an adenocarcinoma (cancer) in his right eye so he will need to have the gland of his third eyelid removed. The estimated cost for this surgery is $1,000.
The well-being of our animals is a top priority for WCGHS, so we quickly sent Inspector in for surgery to correct his injury, and we hope to get Kona’s needed medical care done as soon as possible. We could really use some financial help to cover these sudden large veterinary costs, so if you can make a donation large or small it will be so appreciated.
Our organization is so grateful of all support & well wishes for our beloved animals in their time of need.
