LEE JUDY  EXTENSIVE SURGERY, DELAYED, HELP STILL NEEDED!

A second opinion agreed, LEE JUDY needed to have a FULL MOUTH extraction, yes that meant ALL of her teeth removed. The third vet, who performed the final consultation has had greyt luck treating the autoimmune disease of which Judy has been diagnosed. We decided to go with the third vet. Judy's 1st surgery  was Dec 27. The next appointment, in January, will tell us the prognosis and if we really think that more of Judy's teeth can be saved.  KyGreyhounds appreciates those who have donated to help this sweet, former brood mom receive the dental care she needs to live a happy and painfree life. She is on that road now. The antibiotics have helped and the removal of the worse teeth is giving her a promising prognosis. Until we know more we are still looking at raising the estimated $4,000 toward a full mouth extraction. Any funds raised beyond Judy's needs will be used to help other greyhounds find their forever homes. As of Dec 30, 2018, $1,620 of the estimated $4,000 has been raised. Please make donations through our PayPal account using KyGreyhounds@yahoo.com for the email and visit our Facebook page - KyGreyhounds or our group KyGreyhounds Friends for more information.
