We are helping to raise funds for a sight saving operation for Koda, a 4 year old Hungarian viszla x lab. He is a regular and much loved customer at our charity shop in Alford. After he started bumping into things, his owner took him to the vet. They diagnosed advanced cataracts in both eyes. At the moment he can still go out for walks but they are quite frightening for him now as he can’t see properly. Hearing and smell are his main senses, but if it is windy or busy when he is out so he is easily scared and spooked. Koda’s eyes should be easily fixed so long as gets the right treatment before things get any worse. A specialist has to come up from Edinburgh for a consultation and to do the operations which will cost almsot £3500 which his owner can’t afford. The Dog Aid Society for Scotland has very kindly offered to pay for half the consultation costs and half the costs of the operation for one eye. His owner has set up a GoFund Me page to help raise the rest. DAWGS is doing fundraising at their Alford Shop and are paying for the other half of the consultation fee too. His owner is is doing all he can to raise the funds himself but he and Koda would be very grateful for any assistance you can give them to help Koda get his sight back. You can find out more, and make a donation on Koda’s Go Fund Me page – gf.me/u/bwj9j4
or his facebook page under Koda Parkinson, at the DAWGS charity shop in Alford or through DAWGS at 6 Small Holdings Lang Stracht, Aberdeen. Hopefully soon he will be able to see everyone who has helped him to say thank you.
