Sophie needs support and help to save her eyes

Sophie has a condition called Keratoconjunctivitis Sicca. It is a dry eye condition that she has had since I got her at 6.5 months old. It's manageable if it's mild but for Sophie it was already bad when I first got her. I would have to alternate putting drops and creams in 4-6 times a day. It has gotten to where she yelps in pain or hides when I give her the medication and then she rubs her eyes until skin is raw around her eyes and that is the hardest part for me...to think that she might have to be in pain 4x a day for the rest of her life. Even with all the different trials of medication the condition has gotten rapidly worse. One of her eye has 0 tear production now and I have to put her into surgery as a last resort so I am trying to raise some money in preparation. I have had her for just a little over a month now and have been going back and forth to the vet's office and the eye specialist office and the vet bills along with medication costs are becoming a bit overwhelming. With that said, it is never overwhelming when you're actually taking care of Sophie because she is the sweetest and kindness girl. Beside her eye condition she is a fully healthy and bright dog, so this surgery would mean a lot to us because she is only 8 months old and with this surgery it could mean that she will continue to live the rest of her life fully.

Thank you for reading Sophie's story and and any help is greatly appreciated.
