About the Campaign

Molly’s teeth are falling out…

Molly is an eight year old Yorkie Poo mix that needs her teeth to be cleaned, polished and some teeth pulled. Some of her teeth have fallen out already and her mom, Ginny is worried the longer she waits the more teeth will get infected or fall out.

As you may know 80% of dogs over the age of 3 have some sort of active dental disease. Periodontal disease can cause more problems than tooth pain, says O’Morrow. For example, dogs with unchecked gum inflammation may be at higher risk for heart, kidney, and liver disease. Once the problem is under way, treatment depends on its stage, though initially all treatment requires an exam and X-rays to determine the presence (or absence) of disease. 

Diagnosed with a liver issue

About four months ago Ginny noticed Molly was drinking a lot more water, more lethargic looking and a little wobbly. Turns out Molly has Hepatic microvascular dysplasia. 
Hepatic microvascular dysplasia (HMD or MVD) or portal atresia is a disorder where mixing of venous blood and arterial blood in the  liver occurs at the microscopic level.  In affected dogs, the microscopic blood vessels within the liver are underdeveloped or absent.

Molly is on a special wet/dry food called Royal Canine Hydrolyzed Protein. Due to her liver issue Ginny wants her doctor to perform the surgery since Ginny trusts this vet.
Ginny has had Molly since she was a puppy. Molly was given to Ginny from a family friend and they have been together ever since. Ginny says her personality has always been playful even at 8 years old.
Ginny works part time at Starbucks and has a love for animals. Ginny has a few other rescues at home and any extra money she had she paid for previous treatment of her animals and to diagnose Molly.
Please help Molly get rid her dental disease!
