Note the bulge of Lindy's left eye. She has been diagnosed with glaucoma and will need to have that eye removed to prevent future problems. In addition to the glaucoma, her "tear ducts" are blocked, causing tears to spill over the lower eyelid, creating skin irritation and an environment inviting to topical infections. Removal of this eye will address that problem as well.
Lindy Needs Eye Surgery
Until now, TREES has never solicited donations for specific vet bills. Now however, with rising costs and more horses in need, we need to ask for your help.
Lindy, our little Davenport Arabian mare, who arrived underweight and in need of vet care in the fall of 2011, now needs surgery to remove one eye. What probably started as uveitis some time ago has progressed to glaucoma. While it is not yet terribly painful, this eye does cause some discomfort and should be removed before it begins to cause greater problems.
The veterinary surgeon gave us an estimate of $1170. Can you help us help Lindy sooner rather than later, by chipping in to her surgery fund?
