Default Max the Fraggle needs our help.


ChipIn: Max "the Fraggle."

Max is a four pound senior Maltese who somehow made it on the streets with his homeless mom, an incredible journey because he is blind with advanced glaucoma. We had his rotten teeth removed, he was neutered and his hernia repaired. Glaucoma in dogs is extremely painful and causes migraine like symptoms - Max has suffered his disease too long and he needs our help. The options aren't great for saving his lovely eyes and it is most likely that both will be removed. All options for Max are expensive. AMA Rescue has paid for his ophthalmology exam and his surgery for 8 teeth extractions, hernia and neutering. His medications to reduce his severe eye pressure are pricey but necessary to his comfort. Please help us help him.

Watch Max's video and any money you can give toward getting him well would be greatly appreciated. Donating to AMA Rescue is a tax deduction - how great is that! As his foster I am blown away by his resilience, his independence and his loving personality. If it weren't for my fear of a hawk snatching him I would let him wander my yard all day because he enjoys exploring on his lonesome. He is calm and trusting of everyone. Max is a special boy so worth the effort. Every little bit helps and by helping him it allows us to help even more dogs.

Ophthalmologists notes: You are welcome to request the full exam link on YouTube.
DIAGNOSIS: Buphthalmos OU; Glaucoma OU; Avisual OU; Lens Subluxation OU
PROGNOSIS: Guarded to grave for comfort and vision
We have discussed options including medical management, bilateral enucleation, cyclocryothermy, intrascleral prosthesis placement, or
chemical ablation. The group will consider their options, and some of these determinations will be made following our assessment of
his response to initial medical management.

This just breaks my heart! You foster parents are such amazing people to do what y'all do. Little Max is precious as someone who has suffered migraines, I cannot imagine a poor little dog going through it.

Bron - sharing the video on my FB page. Poor little boy. He's so sweet. Am a little strapped right now for money after Superstorm Sandy but will be donating to his surgery.

Susan,
Those in the path of Sandy or affected shouldn't donate to Max. Your support for him and cross posting him is support enough. Thank you Susan and I hope things are getting better for you.
