Help Diesel the Frenchie See Again

Diesel is a French Bulldog who is one and a half years old. Since Diesel was just a wee puppy, he's been a very energetic and happy little pup who brings joy to all that know him. He enjoys making new friends, both human and other pups, and loves to play with his fur siblings. His eyes have always been something people poked fun at and called wonky. He would always give his family a chuckle when he would try with all of his might to jump on the the furniture, only to miss the jump and fall, or take a turn too quickly and run into the wall. At first, it was thought this was something he would grow out of, maybe his skills of jumping weren't quite developed, or maybe his eyes weren't quite able to focus yet... Over time, his mama's watched as this continued to worsen, and rather than "cute" it became alarming. His mommy's had to build him a ramp to go up and down the stairs because he would fall down at times, making him too scared to go on the stairs all together. When they opened the kennel door he would wait for someone to pick him up and out of the kennel to know that the door was open and he could leave. He would wait for his other doggy siblings to go through the doorway first, so he knew it was open. Finally, the most alarming part was seeing his eyes in the light. The lens of his eyes were completely fogged over. 

Diesel went to the vet, and was referred to a Veterinary Ophthalmologist. His family was praying for the best, but unfortunately received bad news. Diesel, who has already undergone two previous major surgeries (due to fluid building up in his lymph nodes and obstructing his airway), was going to need yet another surgery. Diesel was diagnosed with both cataracts and glaucoma. The Ophthalmologist stated that if Diesel were a human he would be completely blind. His vision is like looking out of several layers of wax paper put together. Additionally, without the surgery, his eyes will start to swell due to the pressure and fluid. Diesel will ultimately require bilateral eye surgery. His ERG and ocular ultrasound is scheduled for January 20, and his surgery is tentatively scheduled thereafter in February.

If you have it in your heart to help Diesel, he sure would appreciate the gift of vision this holiday season. Whether it be through a donation or prayers, anything  is greatly appreciated. 

With Love, Diesel *snort snort*
