About the Campaign

Roxy has a hole through the top of her mouth,

that goes into her nasal area!

This very sweet and active little dog was rescued two years ago by Silvia. She was older, about eight, and had bad teeth. No one was adopting her from the shelter. Silvia felt bad for her and took her home! That simple. She then spent about $500 getting her teeth cleaned and some other care.

In February of this year Roxy went back to the vet to renew her vaccinations, and the vet noticed some loose teeth. Then, on more detailed examination the doctor noticed that Roxy had an Oronasal Fistula: a hole through the gums where one of her teeth used to be that extends into the nose area. Besides being painful, this can get infected and become a real big problem.

Since Roxy is getting older, at about 10 years-old, it is best to do this surgery now. If this problem continues it could lead to a serious nasal infection, and other problems, and the older Roxy gets the more risky any surgery is, and it takes a stronger toll on her.

(Update: We got Roxy in at a local vet we trust, that is offering a discount as well. He reports that she also has a number of bad teeth and needs them removed).

The family is low income, and just cannot afford this procedure for little Roxy. All donations are for her surgery and will go so far in making her feel better! If you can donate to help Roxy get the dental surgery she needs, please donate in confidence today!

    Because so many people helped provide Goldie with her eye surgery I want to give something to Roxy to help her life be better. This is a wonderful, caring group. For those of us who love our animals Free Animal Doctor.com is a life line. Thanks for all you do especially the kindness of Ryan.
