No More Squinting for Ruth!

$485 of $1,200 goal

Raised by 27 people in 13 days
Sweet Ruth was rescued from the shelter with painful, squinty eyes - we thought it was just her left eye and we were hoping it was something easy to treat with eyedrops.  Unfortunately the issue is affecting both eyes - it is extremely uncomfortable and it is affecting Ruth's vision, this condition can only be corrected surgically.  She has entropion - the upper and lower eyelids roll inwards causing the lashes to rub and irritate her eyes.  It is very dangerous because the rubbing could cause corneal ulcers or permanent damage. Ruth needs a delicate surgery to tack the lids back into the proper position to alleviate her discomfort.

We also discovered that Ruth has a large protruding hernia, which will be repaired at the same time as her eye surgery.  We look forward to ending Ruth's discomfort, in both her eyes and her belly!
