Eye surgery for Razor the puppy

$1,905 of $2,000 goal

Razor is an adorable GPA Lexington  greyhound puppy from NGA (racing) parents (SE's Charlie - sire, Rico's Huron - dam). Razor was too young to have received tattoos or a racing name at the time he left the farm a couple weeks ago. He retired from the racing world very young due to an accidental eye injury.

Upon initial evaluation, our opthalmologist, Dr. Tolar, determined that he sustained a corneal perforation to his left eye. He is completely blind in that eye, and has now developed secondary glaucoma. This has caused his eye to become swollen, draining, and painful. Dr. Tolar has recommended an enucleation (eye removal) as soon as possible. This will be the best treatment option to restore comfort, and to provide a quality of life to Razor.

This little guy, only 12 weeks old and weighing in at only 18 pounds, is going in for surgery on Tuesday 8/29/2017. The estimated cost for the procedure and follow-up care is nearly $2000. As an all-volunteer, non-profit organization, operating on a shoestring budget, Greyhound Pets of America- Lexington, Kentucky needs your help! Please donate today so Razor can just be a puppy again.....

RAZOR UPDATE: We go back to the vet in Louisville on Tuesday (9/12) for Razor's post-op check up, which will be two weeks since his surgery. Hopefully they will remove his stitches and he can ditch the cone. We're on cone number 2 because despite have major surgery less than two weeks ago, pup has bounced back fast and he cracked his first cone running around and playing in the yard. He's feeling so much better since the eye removal. No wincing in pain or worry that we'll bump or irritate the eye when playing (did I mention he LOVES to play). His eye got so big so fast we had to start pain meds and limit his playing for fear or hurting it more before he could have surgery, which is no life for a puppy. He has been off his pain meds for a week now and is happy as ever. He's growing by the day (he's all legs right now) and is getting faster in the backyard during zoomies. This upcoming vet trip will be his fourth and hopefully last trip over that eye, as the incision looks to be healing nicely and he doesn't seem bothered at all by it, so fingers crossed. Thanks to everyone who donated to help this boy feel like a puppy again!
