After watching and listening to Angel struggle to breathe for nearly 4 years I decided to contact an amazing veterinary team and tell them Angel’s story. I asked if there is anything they could possibly do to reconstruct her nose and make breathing a little easier for her. They got back to me and said they can help her and have worked on reconstructing dogs faces/noses before.
On the 4th of January Angel went for a full body CT scan. The scan showed that the left side of her nose is completely free floating and the nostril does not communicate with the left nasal chamber which is completely sealed, meaning she breathes entirely through a 2mm hole. To make breathing easier and more comfortable for her she is booked in at Fitzpatrick referrals on Monday to make the hole she breathes through larger. The estimated cost of the procedure is £4000-£4500, so unfortunately I am having to fundraise for it. Although she does cope ok now, this will greatly improve her breathing and she will be in the best hands. She has already been through so much and I want to do this for her, she absolutely deserves to have the best quality of life.
Angel is insured but because of the nature of this surgery and it being a pre existing medical condition, this would not be covered. I will keep everyone entirely in the loop as always. Thank you so much. ❤️
