Long Island - Young Irish Wolfie Mix Needs a Chance at Life

Post by Christine » Fri Jan 02, 2015 4:22 pm

Given up for inconvenience...She needs Surgery NOW!!! ★★

Jan 1, 2015
★★ Big news about our girl Butchie (now Tara). She has seen a specialist
and is ready for surgery to correct her incontinence! We really need to
rally for her and raise the funds. Please help us to give Tara the chance at
a Happy and Pain Free Life. Together we can do this for her! ★★

Tara was relinquished to
<https://www.facebook.com/pages/Road-to- ... 6895138247?

Road to Home Rescue Support when her owners decided to euthanize her, after having had her for over 5 years.

She had incontinence issues since she was a puppy but they never looked into helping her. Instead they
decided that it was time to end her life when their baby was born. They kept her in a small diaper which was never changed. When she got to our vet, she had a severe infection and was covered with sores.

After trying different medications, which didn’t work, we brought her to a specialist for a consult. She appears to have a congenital issue which can be fixed with surgery. Tara is an unbelievably sweet and gentle dog. She was in boarding
for months and now has been with a wonderful foster, who adores her.
Tara has been having recurring infections which are now causing her great discomfort. She has been to the Animal Medical Center for a consult and will require a procedure called Cystoscopy- guided Laser Ablation. We are in desperate need of funds so Tara can have her surgery and live a life without pain or discomfort. Ever dollar will get us closer to making this a reality!

Hmm. Never heard of surgically-correctible incontinence.

Joanne can probably explain it to us in "apples and oranges", but I found this brief comment on it:
