As my service animal, Milton has been all over the country. He has worked hard to help me through life's darkest moments. In between, Milton has taught many children to be brave and loved the elderly where I volunteered. I hope this surgery will let Milton give kisses for years to come!
In 2017 I started to notice Milton's gums were swelling. The veterinarian said it was Epulis , normal for a Boxer. I began diligently cleaning his teeth daily, making his food and researching the condition. I even got pet insurance, only to discover that it does not cover this particular issue. Now, his gums have grown over 80% of his teeth. He has a hard time chewing bones, his gums are very swollen and bright red.
Milton is a trooper, letting me clean his mouth every day and trying everything from hemp oil to colloidal silver. We now have to take drastic action and remove the over growth surgically as to avoid infection and heart disease.
Milton is scheduled for surgery with Dr. Berning in Columbus Ohio on September 1, 2021.
She has quoted up to $5,500 for the surgery.
Pre-op bloodwork is $150 and post op follow-up should be $95.
I was approved for $1,100 Care Credit, and have saved $500, I am hoping to raise the remaining amount over the summer. I have taken a third job cleaning Air B&B's to chip away at this upcoming cost!
I have been and will continue to apply for grants.
I understand your hard earned dollars are precious and as my thank you, everyone who donates will get a free copy of my e-book Passport to Self-Discovery, inspiring stories of women who travel.
Milton the gentle-hearted thanks you for all your love and support!
