This is Skittle
Poor Skittle has Inguinal Hernia! A condition in which the abdominal contents protrude through the inguinal canalor inguinal ring, an opening which occurs in the muscle wall in the groin area. This Hernia is bad news and it needs to be repaired. Within that same surgery, Skittle will be spayed. This little, 8 year old, Dachshund needs your help! Can you help Skittle get the surgery she needs?
In the past two months, Skittle would cough off an on. Then, all of a sudden, Monica noticed a small lump. How it got there she had no idea but she immediately took Skittle to the vet. The vet explained that Skittle had a hernia and it needed to be repaired as soon as possible. Further testing also showed that the Hernia was most likely caused by Skittle’s excessive coughing. Skittle was diagnosed with Bronchitis.
Skittle has been with Monica for her entire life. Monica never grew up with dogs and found herself as more of a cat person. But, after spending time with a cute little Doxin, she knew she needed that kind of love in her life. She bought Skittle as a Christmas present for herself. Skittle was the runt of the litter and the last to get adopted but of course that didn’t stop Monica from taking this sweetie pie home.
Currently, Skittle is on medication for her Bronchitis and it has worked wonders for her coughing and wheezing. However, her Hernia is still pending treatment. Monica simply cannot afford the upfront cost of the surgery. Skittle has brought so much joy to Monica and her family’s lives. Monica is a single mom and most of her income goes to her daughter and her self. She can manage Skittle’s general care but this procedure is too out of budget. However, with your help, Skittle can get the surgery she needs.
