Meet Hank. Hank is a 5 year old lab/pit mix love bug who is a friend to all animals, people and everything in between.  He was a rescue who now cares for and protects a dog, two cats, three children, two grandparents and us, and is now in desperate need of support and care for himself.

A usually strong healthy dog, recently his eyes began to constantly squint and his left eye became cloudy and swollen. He would bury his head into anyone he could to help hold his eyes closed. After three pet hospitals it has been determined that the glaucoma in his left eye is not a primary condition – meaning something else inside of him has caused the glaucoma.

With multiple possibilities - from infection to blood disorders to head trauma to different tumors – the only way to do proper investigation and find the cause is to remove the eye and send it for a biopsy. Until this happens, they can only treat him symptomatically and not treat or stop/remove the cause. His ophthalmologist is wonderful and extremely caring, and genuinely determined to get to the bottom of this.

Unfortunately even with the steroids and pain medicine and multiple eye drops the pressure in his eye from the glaucoma continues to rise with each visit, as does his discomfort. An outpatient procedure, the written estimate we have has a low-end of $1373.00 and a high-end estimate of $1632.00. Normally I would just do without something if it’s not within the budget, but unfortunately this must happen, and sooner than later.

If there’s any possibility of donating to help hank, even $1.00, would you please consider it?
