About the Campaign

Mickey health is getting worse

About two weeks ago Gail noticed that Mickey was coughing, after a few days of the cough getting worse, Gail took Mickey into the vet. The vet did an initial exam and noticed Mickey’s teeth looking not so good. The vet stated the cough was probably due to the dental issue. The vets suggestion was to first get his teeth cleaned and extracted if needed and then come back to the cough if it wasn’t better.



Gail did her homework and found the most reasonable dental price!
Here is Mickey’s mouth surgery with pre-surgical examine.


Mickey’s History

Mickey is a 13 year old chihuahua… on the older side but the vet is willing to do dental surgery once the pre surgical blood work is completed with no signs of complications.

Gail bought Mickey 13 years ago, at the time she didn’t know better. Mikey was the last of the puppies because he had luxating patellas. He has had this issue his whole life but no one else wanted him.  His knees bother him every once in a while but his knees never slowed him down.

Gail Educates

Gail loves her dogs to death. She even educates the public about backyard breeders to prevent people from buying dogs. Gail also taught her dogs to be loving little chihuahua’s and not little biting dogs! Mickey is a lover not a fighter!


Gail had an unexpected retirement due to a medical issue and needs help with Mickey’s medical work.


All donations are tax deductible. Free Animal Doctor pays the vet directly the amount of money raised for the dental procedure.

    Micks brother Fonzie came from a breeder who used him as a stud dog for 10 years with no vet care or reasearch. He was suddenly unwanted when he became a senior and he has many health issues that should have never been passed on. Hes a high maintenance dog but we love him too

    I know what it feels like when your baby is sick and you don’t have the funds. Hope Mickey feels better soon!

          Mickey went in for his bloodwork last week and he goes for his dental surgery next week, they were really backed up because they are popular. I kept brushing his teeth 2x a day and it cut down on his coughing a lot. I will post how hes doing after this all is over and I will be forever grateful to the kind strangers who cared. 💕 I share the FAD information on my Rescued boy’s page quite often.. It means a lot to me

    Mickey had his Dental Surgery yesterday and feels so good. I will be forever grateful for FAD for helping us when we had no idea how to come up with this much extra at once. I have been donating a little each month and will continue to do so, I only wish it could be more. You never would think this could be me someday, I never did.. Love you all
