The family of Gretta is raising money to help her gain her vision back by getting cataract surgery completed on both of her eyes.

Gretta has recently been diagnosed with diabetes. She is working well to manage the change in her life and her sugar levels are now straightening out. Our vet has decided that she is a candidate for catract surgery and has the chance to get her vision back! However this requires seeing a specialist, being tested and then receiving the surgery if her blood levels remain under control. The cost will be roughly $3000.00 and we are unable to pay this amount.

Some background on Gretta:
She is a seven year old Chesapeake Bay Retriever who has was diagnosed with diabetes almost two months ago. Before diabetes Gretta was a highly active, ball chasing and water loving dog. She was the great protector of the house and lived to spend time with my husband.

Although she has only been blind for a few days it is a hard transition that I don't believe she will ever adjust to. This past weekend we went camping and Gretta sat on the shore and whimpered because she wanted to play with the ball, but couldn't find it. It was at that moment I promised her I would do whatever it took to get her vision back. I never imagined that the cost would be so high, but I am bound to find a way to bring her vision back to her.

I want her to see my daughter as she grows up with her fur sisters.
