I  finally have a name - LAW have called me Tamara, I am a black female greyhound found in a terrible state. I am just four years old and have broken ribs on one side which caused a collapsed lung, I also have an injury to my hip which causes me to easily fall over. I only weigh 19kg. I was in very poor condition when I arrived at LAW but despite all my problems I love all my carers here. Six weeks after my arrival I have put on much needed weight and yesterday they took me to a specialist in Gilabbey Vets in Cork. I am happy to tell you that the vet has told LAW the broken ribs have settled and I am now breathing on the previously collapsed lung. Sadly, I now need an operation called a femoral head ostectomy (FHO) , this is a surgical procedure that removes the head and neck from the femur. FHO surgery is performed to alleviate pain. It is a salvage procedure, reserved for condition where pain can not be alleviated in any other way. This will make me a lot more comfortable and I will finally be able to use my back leg and not fall over all the time .All the x-rays, operation and return visits will cost 1K so I am asking can you please help LAW as they will help me whatever. It doesnt matter how little or big as those cents add up..... I am another of Irelands forgotton greyhounds.
