Please Help Maggie; She came into Dachshund rescue with a Broken Jaw that happened at the breeder's place when she kicked her out of the way during a dog fight. Instead of seeking medical attention right away, she left it go. We go her 1 month later and when the vet went to spay her, she called me and said that Maggie's jaw was broken and it has started to heal and part of the jaw was starting to rot. (I called the breeder who admitted to the fight and kick - I called the police department and animal control to report the abuse - she has been dealt with) We decided to help her and went to Horseshoe lake Animal Hospital to get her evaluated. Dr. Ervin said that it was fixable and that she could live a long life, but it will be complicated. She is only 4 yrs old and all of her teeth are rotted, so they will all have to be removed before they can even fix the jaw. Maggie has the best spirit and is the happiest dog even though she is in constant pain we simply could not euthanize her. Dr. Ervin wrapped a tape muzzle around her jaw so she would be able to tolerate the pain better - we are having to feed her watered down food through a syringe so she can get all the nutrition and medicine she needs post surgery. She only weighs 7 lbs so she needs all her nutrition. The total bill for the surgery is $972. If you can make a donation to Maggie's surgery we would really, really appreciate it. You can either click the PayPal link on the first page of this website or send payment directly to: Horseshoe lake Animal Hospital, 5230 Horseshoe lake Rd., Collinsville, Ill 62234. Even if you can only send $5, please do-- if you send it directly to the hospital - please reference Dachshund Rescue - Maggie. Thank you so much for reading her story.
