About the Campaign

Mocha just keeps going!

This senior Cocker Spaniel is full of life. She was diagnosed with bone cancer in 2018 and given six months, but here she is in 2024! Yes, she lost an arm, but she made it.

Then we did a fundraiser for her in 2023 for a cancerous tumor on her lip. That procedure was also a success, and there have been no signs of it coming back. But Mocha has another issue now: Glaucoma.

For years she’s had glaucoma, pressure build up in the eye, and has managed it with medication. However, as is often the case, the effectiveness of the medication decreased over time. Now her right eye is too swollen and painful. The pressure has made the eye blind anyway, and removal is the best and humane option.

Mocha at Eye Care for Animals in San Diego. They treated her glaucoma, but she will have this surgery at a lower cost non-profit vet.

Her left eye is still responding to medication, and she has vision in that eye, but the right has gotten quite bad. At her most recent check up the doctor was pretty adamant that the eye had to be removed. Her owner Rouge has shopped around for the best price, and gotten her in at low cost vet, and the estimate is below (click to enlarge):

    Prayers for you and your beautiful fur baby. Dogs adapt to one or no eyes much easier then humans so she will be so happy to have that painful eye gone.

    I hope you can have this taken care of soon my dog had eye issues too with eye ulcers. It was very painful for her nothing any animals should have to go through. Praying for you.
