Despite our best efforts and exhausting all treatments with the local veterinarian, after a year, Hazel is still suffering from an unknown skin condition. It is time to see a specialist and we need your help!

Hazel came to Friends Furever Animal Rescue over a year ago as an eleventh hour save from a high-kill shelter in Utah. Shortly after settling in to her new foster home, Hazel began having skin loss, red cracked and oozing skin lesions, etc. She has been seen many, many times at the local vet clinic and every possible treatment has been attempted including special diets, steroids, and antihistamine injections with little to no improvement. Hazel has an appointment at West Vet in Boise next week to see a specialist. At this time, our quote for the initial consultation, diagnostic work, and subsequent treatment is $495 ($135 consult fee, $60 diagnostics, est $200 for treatment) but could easily increase from there depending on the course of treatment needed.

Hazel is a very sweet girl and is very loved in her foster home, but she is miserable and in pain most of the time and unfortunately having an unknown and currently uncorrected skin issue makes Hazel "unadoptable" (the majority of adopters are not willing to take on a dog with ongoing medical issues for fear of future expenses). Obviously, getting a correct diagnosis and a successful treatment for Hazel's skin issue is priority number one, but we also want Hazel to FINALLY get her chance at being adopted into a permanent and loving home like she deserves.

I am setting the goal amount for this fundraiser at $600 to cover the minimum and leave some room for any unexpected costs (additional tests, prescriptions, etc.) Every dollar donated WILL help and is greatly appreciated! We know that, even though this is a relatively expensive vet visit, if we can finally get Hazel treated and healthy, it will get her that much closer to her Happily Ever After!
