My best friend needs an ear ablation surgery before winter.

My best friend and companion of six years, Totonka (Tonka) has been plagued with severe ear infections. We have tried everything from making dietary changes to steroids and pain medication. Now his vet tells us that Tonka needs a ear ablation for both of his ears.

I have great confidence in our vet who has treated Tonka since I could carry him in a handbag. . He says Tonka"s case is one of the worse he has seen and his recommendation is to take the severe measure of ear surgery that would remove all the damaged, calcified tissue which is, essentially, the whole inner ear.

This is a very expensive surgery, performed by a specialist - approx. $2,230 per ear - and it often leaves the dog deaf, although a dog who has had such severe ear infections over the years has likely suffered hearing loss already.

I'm simply heart-broken and torn over the operation, however, I want Tonka to have the best quality of live I can provide. Also, Tonka has seen me through so, so very much and has stayed steadfast by my side with kind eyes and a cheeky smile.

Tonka's surgery come at a time bad time, my husband lost his sight to MS, and I've just started a new job. Money is very tight, as it is with a lot of people. I would truly appreciate any help offered.
