Gracie needs an Operation Urgently.
Gracie has just recently been diagnosed with IEP - Idiopathic Erosive Polyarthritis and urgently needs an operation before her quality of life deteriorates beyond help.

IEP is a degenerative disease which affects the joints and all Gracie's joints are affected, whilst the hind legs are less severe, Gracie's front joints, wrists, ankles and toes are all badly damaged and she is in severe pain.

Walking is exceptionally difficult for her and extremely painful and without this operation she will fast lose her mobility. Her rear joints can be treated with medication but her only hope for her front legs is a lengthy and difficult operation known as 'arthrodesis', a surgical procedure which fuses the joints, whilst it is a difficult operation it is also highly successful and Gracie will be able to go on to live a long and happy and pain free life if we manage to raise the funds for her, at only 5-6 years old we think she deserves this chance and we hope you do too.

Please donate whatever you can and share her story to help Gracie continue to walk, as without it her life will become unbearable.

Gracie is currently at the clinic on standby until we let the surgeons know they can go ahead as the funds are in - we hope we can make that call soon!
Thank you.
