Jetty went down with an eye ulcer on the 24th of July and after 6 weeks of treatment it just wasn't getting better. Sadly his eye is pretty bad and it cant be saved so this week he will be having surgery to remove his eye. The good news is that for his age, his good eye is really healthy with no cataract so he will cope just fine.
Ella arrived 3 weeks ago tomorrow and it was established during her first vet check that she had a Squamous Cell Carcinoma on her third eye lid. Pauline saw her today and the good news is that she will only lose her third eye lid and not her whole eye.
So it has been a bitter sweet day all in all but at least both horses can be treated and will still live long full lives.
Massive thank you to Pauline Gaven, Manly Road Horse Hospital and Cindy Bickerstaff for all of their wonderful help today.
If you can help out with our huge surgery costs please make a tax deductible donation, no amount is to small, ever $2 adds up. Thank you all so much xx
