Please help Trixie keep her eye. As it is she has 3 meds she will always have to be on due to this and they will cost almost 200.00 per mo.

Our dog Trixie is a wonderful 3 year old toy fox terrier. She is not just our dog but part of our family. She is a very sweet and playful little angel. Recently she woke up with a clouded eyeball and was squinting. You could tell her eye was hurting her. We took her to the vet that day and they sent us to a specialist. The Vetrinary Opthamologist told us the she has what is called a lens luxation. Apparently it is common with the Terrier breeds. They offered a couple alternatives. We opted for a surgery (which they performed the same day) where they manually put her lens back in place and drained the fluid from her eye. We also had to get 5 meds for her and in the end spent just over 1200.00 on her that day. I am on L and I which is what you get put on when you are injured at work. So my income is 62% of my working income. So I have pretty much exhausted my little bit of savings I had left. The specialist beleives if she removes the lens it will stop the glaucoma she is getting from the pressure in her eye. It can be very painful. The surgery is 3500.00. I don't have that kind of money right now and am not able to get credit without currently working.
