Dog needs surgery

Frodo, a Welsh corgi, needs dental surgery for infected teeth.

Frodo, a Welsh corgi, needs dental surgery for infected teeth, says owner Christine Stewart.

“This may not seem too serious,” she says, “but tooth infections can easily become septic, leading to systemic illness that causes irreparable damage to the organs.

Surgery, she adds, will cost an estimated $500 to $1,100.

“Due to recent financial changes, I am unable to afford Frodo’s surgery cost.”

If you want to help this “beloved member of the family,” you can donate c/o Frodo’s Fund at Shamrock Veterinary Clinic at 1896 Guthrie Rd. in Comox or by calling the clinic at 250-339-2026 and using a credit card.
