Please Help With Milo’s Surgery
From Milo’s owner: Our Pembroke Welsh Corgi’s name is Milo, and he is 9 months old. My husband had a corgi growing up, and it has been our dream to have one for many years. After over a year of researching rescue organizations, shelters, responsible breeders and putting in numerous applications, we finally found the perfect dog. He is the silliest boy and never stops making us laugh. Milo is doing well with his training too and knows how to sit, come here, wait, go to his crate, jump up, and walk well on a leash.
Milo was recently diagnosed with cryptorchidism, which means he only has one testicle because the other one never dropped. It is considered to be the most common birth defect that veterinarians encounter. Dogs with a retained testicle are more likely to develop a testicular cancer, and the longer we wait to neuter him the more likely it is for cancer to develop. We always intended to be responsible owners and neuter him as soon as possible, but because of the added complication, the insurance we purchased will not cover this surgery.
My husband and I are both graduate school students and although we took on extra jobs we are barely covering our basic living costs. This unexpected expense is just not something we can handle at this time, Because the vet said the sooner we can do this surgery the better for Milo’s health, we are asking for any assistance that can be offered.
