Nennie update

UPDATE: We have covered the cost of the “quick fix” short term op, but we feel it will be in Nennie’s best interest to do the ventral bulla osteotomy which gives her the best chance of a pain-free future. This operation is not without its risks but must be better than needing 4 or more surgeries a year for the rest of her life. We have been given a significant discount and will be seeing a referral vet who specialises in this sort of surgery. Please, for Nennie’s sake, can we push this further to try to get to the target £1,410.94? Many thanks.

Earache is really nasty – especially when you are really really frightened of the doctor (and everyone else!) and poor Nennie needs a lot of help for her poorly ear. We have told you about our semi-feral friend Nennie before. Way back in April she needed an ear operation due to having a polyp blocking her ear canal and an abscess behind it causing all sorts of problems and much pain for the poor girl. She has been having treatment ever since and is still having major issues with her left ear. The polyps are still growing and once again have blocked her ear canal, so the treatment cannot get to the site of the problem. She also now has a ruptured ear drum. It has come to the point where we feel surgery is the only answer for this sweet little girl. We have 2 options. We can have her anaesthetised every few months to have the polyps removed, or we can fix it once and for all with a ventral bulla osteotomy surgery. The once and for all fix is expensive (in the region of £2,000) and not without risk. This will take us a while to save up for, so our plan is to get the polyp removed again very soon (£222.22) and save up as much as we can to be able to afford the more major operation. Please can you help this little lady? She has suffered so long, and it is time we put a stop to it. You can donate in several ways. Use the Donate button on here to donate through Facebook. You can also give via Virgin Money Giving here: https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/…/finalCharityHomepage.act… The Paypal address is gareth@farplace.org.uk You can donate by texting NEUTER to 70300 to give £10; LOVE to give £5; STAFFIE to give £3; or LICK to give £1. Add the words NO INFO after your text and we will not send you any further texts after the initial automatic Thank You. Alternatively, if you prefer to give directly to our vet, please message us for details. Many thanks. All money raised over the cost her care will be used on our outstanding vet bill, so will directly benefit our other animals.
