Lab In Need

Smokey Joy


2021-06-07: We found Smokey Joy at a local shelter with her Lab brother Freddy Joy, both at 11 years old. We could not take just Freddy Joy out of the shelter and leave Smokey behind, so we took her as an honorary Lab too. Glad we did as she really needed our help. She was very skinny, had yeast infections all over her body, missing hair, broken teeth, and ear infections. We treated all of that, did blood work, she had a dental with 16 extractions and she is feeling better already.

During a routine checkup, the vet noticed she has multiple small masses around her mammary chain. She needs to have the lower part of the mammary chain (2+2) removed plus a lumpectomy from the upper part, a total of 5 masses. They don’t know if they are cancerous, chances are 50-50. We are hoping they are benign, of course. Tomorrow, she is scheduled for surgery with the best oncologist surgeon we know – Dr. Donner at Blue Pearl. She helped us with so many dogs in the past.

The estimate for this surgery after our discount is around $4,700.00.

Smokey Joy is a very sweet girl that deserves a chance to a better life. So we really want to help her. Can you please help us help her?
