Piggy's Cataract Surgery

Hello! 

My name is Piggy! I'm a simple dog that loves the simple things in life~ My mom takes really good care of me ❤ She cooks and makes all my meals because I have Cushing and Pancreatitius, so she makes sure I eat the right things.  A few months ago I was diagnosed with diabetes that is really hard to control which was a result of my other conditions. My mom has been working hard with the vets getting my sugar in control. 

Not long after I was diagnosed with diabetes, my mom started noticing my eyes were getting cloudy, but I could see just fine at the moment. My mom took me to the vets for my usual check up and to look at my eyes. The vet told me and my mom I was forming cataracts,  but they reassured that it was slow forming. After 2-3 weeks of my mom finding my forming cataracts, my vision went away very fast after the vet visit. I was very scared. I woke up and could make out if the sun was up or not, shapes, movement and shadows. The next day, i could only make shadows and large movments. After that, I woke up and... I couldn't see anything. in 48-72 hrs in a couple weeks I went completely blind. I was scared, i needed my mom to help me. Im sad, I can't watch out my favorite window and protect my mom and home from the neigborhood cats and birds. It took me a long time to get used to walking outside again. I need my mom for a lot of things, and i know my mom doesn't mind but I know she's sad too because she can't always be there for me. I don't leave the couch or area once mom leaves for work. I stay put until she comes home. 

Can you help me and my mom raise enough funds for a procedure to help clear my cataracts? My mom and I would be very grateful with any donations you  an give to help out! 

Thank You!

Hey guys, This little dooder has gone through a lot over his short life. He was rescued from a bad home and shortly after we got him thats when his medical issues started. My mom does her best to keep him as healthy as possible but with the combination of everything, he developed his cataracts really quickly for a slow developing issue, going blind really over night. My mom and I greatly appreciate any help that you give us for our little dooder.
