Suffering a Mammary Tumor
Sneaker, a senior golden doodle, needed help. Our vet partner, Bayshore Animal Clinic, reached out to us to see if we could help to assist her owner cover a portion of her surgical bill.
Sneaker's owner shared what our help meant to her, "You all helped my older doodle dog. She has a huge inflamed tumor on her teet. A vet quoted $2500. and I did not have that much money. You were able to partner with a vet and helped me pay for the majority of the bill. Thank you."
Many owners are unaware of the consequences of leaving their pets intact, which can have serious health consequences for them, especially as they age. Most are shocked to learn about the increased risk of mammary cancers.
Funding for this was made possible through our Medical Assistance Program for emergency, trauma and surgical cases with a grant from the Community Foundation of Sarasota County through their Animal Welfare Grant Program thanks to the Martha Leiter and Nancy Streetman Fund I and Robert Parker Fund.
