Dachshund Cocoa Visits the Oncologists

Cocoa had her first visit with the specialists at Blue Pearl Veterinary Partners (formerly Florida Veterinary Specialists). She was was examined and found in good general health apart from the obvious tumor on her throat. Her exrays were examined and they believe there are no other tumors present. However they urged me to get the surgery as soon as possible so that the tumor, which they believe to be malignant, does not spread.

Cocoa has to have some bloodwork done next before they can do the surgery. I need about $120 for that and then$1300 for the surgery. Wow! If you can help, even $5.00 will make a difference in saving Cocoa. And remember she will need a forever home when this horrible ordeal is over.

    Poor Cocoa. She is lucky to have been rescued by you. I admire your determination to make sure she gets the care she needs to stay alive and healthy.
    Please keep us updated with Cocoa’s ongoing care.

    I do not want to do pay pal. If you tell me where I can send a little something in form of a check, I will.
