About the Campaign
Boz has a tumor on his prostate,
and needs another one checked!
Victoria rescued Boz at just six months old from a Craigslist ad, Boz has been a loyal companion and source of comfort for Victoria ever since.
In early April, Boz started showing signs of illness, and Victoria took him to the vet, and got follow up care through a fundraiser here.
At that visit the doctor determined Boz needs:
- Surgery to remove a tumor
- A check of another tumor on his spleen
- A tumor on his liver is not a problem, and can be left alone
- Kidney stones seem to be under control, and treatment by diet will continue.
The procedure is not too expensive, $550. As a senior citizen living alone and facing her own health problems, Victoria is self-employed with a small income, and even this cost is more than she can afford now. She was able to cover Boz’s initial vet visit with the help of a friend, but has no more money available.
As always we pay donations only to the veterinarian, not the owner, so you can be sure your donation to Boz will go to Boz!
