Right now, we have a senior little Iggy mix Maui in Houston. She has severe periodontal disease for which she has already had one surgery, and is a high heartworm positive so is about to begin HW treatment. In Tulsa, we have a megaesophagus dog who needs special food and hand feeding. IN St. Louis, […]
Hazeljane’s is facing a little bit of a financial crisis. Long time foster boy Grey Knight has an appointment with an ophthalmologist at Missouri State next week. The vet who has been caring for GK has run out of viable options for his chronic dry eyes. Unlike some other dogs with this condition, he doesn’t seem to produce any tears and the precise medications he has been given are not helping for long enough. Dr. Emily believes he will need bilateral surgery which involves having one of his salivary glands re-routed. We estimate the cost, based on her conversations with the University’s veterinary ophthalmology department to be between $3,000 and $4,000.

Last night, just before 6:00 pm, we got a frantic phone call from Augusta’s foster mom. In a panic over needing to go back in her crate to come here, Augusta leapt onto and then off of the low bed, breaking her right front leg on dismount. Dr. Cody at Ranch Acres in Tulsa stayed […]
Another day, another vet bill here at HJB. Yesterday Luther seemed a little off. He screamed a few times when another dog brushed by him, but when I picked him up and felt him over, he seemed fine. Until last night, when I touched his jaw to put his sweater on and he screamed again! […]
