Percy is a 9 year old pug who has had a very good life, and is the sweetest boy you'll ever meet. A couple of weeks ago we noticed he was slowing down a lot and wouldn't eat; which for a pug is a big concern, he lives to eat! We took him to the vet and they determined it be to his teeth that were the cause of his discomfort and lack of appetite. He has had oral problems all his life, having gotten half of his teeth removed about 6 years ago this was no surprise to us.
So two weeks later we took him to the vet for his dental surgery and during their routine pre-surgery x-rays they discovered that his jaw was actually broken. He had lots of bone loss around his left jaw due to his poor teeth and this was a break that could not have been prevented. Anything could have broken it; from him bumping into something or even eating something too crunchy.
So we rushed him to an emergency specialist to fix his broken jaw and what went from a $1200 procedure to just have his teeth out, turned into a $4000 surgery to fix his broken jaw. We have already had to pay $750 for his anesthesia and initial x-rays. I can guarantee 100% of the funds raised to will back into paying for his medical bills, and any follow up procedures and medications that he will need. I have attached a bill of the $750 we paid, the estimate of his jaw surgery, and a letter describing his condition.
Percy has been apart of our family for 9 loving years now and we could not imagine our life without. He has a best friend at home that misses him every second he's not already there. Our vet says he is otherwise a very healthy boy and that getting this surgery is essential in guaranteeing him a long happy and healthy life.
Our family would be forever grateful to anyone to donates to help keep our special boy happy and healthy and in our lives.
