Nikki needs your help. Nikki is a 9 mo. old Chihuahua with an eye injury. The eye couldn't be saved. Our wonderful vet removed it so Nikki wouldn't be in pain; but now, we must raise the money for the bill.

Nikki is the second recipient of Alice Ali-gator’s “Paw It Forward” efforts. She is being fostered at our home with Ali-gator as her mentor until she is ready for a new home.

Nikki came to us from someone who could no longer keep her. She was loved, but she needed medical attention and care they couldn’t provide.

She is missing 10 teeth (bad genetics), is underweight (she is just starting to eat well), and her eye was originally punctured somehow and not treated.

On Jan 7, Nikki was examined by Dr. Barbara Otrubova at Yokayo Veterinary Clinic. Dr. O recommended she see the eye specialist in Santa Rosa, CA (120 miles round-trip).

On Jan. 14, Nikki saw Rebecca Burwell, DVM, DACVO at the Eye Care for Animals. Dr. Burwell gave her a thorough exam and determined the eye had no vision, was an old puncture wound, and the retina was adhere to the cornea and a cataract had form. She felt it would be best for it to be removed.

On Jan 16, Nikki had a left eye enucleation and spay at Yokayo. The office was kind enough to do the surgery without waiting for the funds to be paid so Nikki would not have to wait.

Now we must raise the money by the end of the January. We will be having an auction to pay all the household veterinary bills; however, this account will be used exclusively for Nikki’s bills.

The goal reflects the bills accumulated so far. If there are any additional expenses, we will adjust as necessary. If we should go over the goal, all excess will be applied to Lucky’s medical bills.

Thank you for your interest in this sweet little girl. She is a wonderful little lady who will bring great joy to someone’s life once she is well and able.
