This beautiful beagle is Rosco, and he’s 10-years-old. A distinguished older gentleman, Rosco's vision was just slightly impaired. Then his mom started to notice masses growing on his eyes, causing his already compromised vision to become worse.
“Rosco is like one of our children, and we would be devastated if we lost him. My husband and I are extremely close to him. He’s very spoiled and well loved. He sleeps in our bed with us and is the best dog we have ever had,” says Rosco’s mom.
It isn't too unusual to find a bump on a dog's eyelid or eye. Bumps can be styes, tumors, or other growths; even ticks. Regardless, getting your beloved pet checked out by a veterinarian is essential for their overall health and wellness.
Knowing that something was wrong with their fur kid, Rosco’s parents did the responsible thing and brought him to the vet to have his eyes looked at. The vet recommended that Rosco have surgery to remove the masses.
Rosco’s mom and dad own their own business; recently Rosco's dad hurt his back and is unable to work as much, and COVID-19 wasn't helping with business either.
His parents knew they could afford small monthly payments, but it would stretch their already stretched finances even more. They applied to Fur Kids Foundation to help pay for Rosco’s eye surgery, and we were happy to help.
Rosco had his masses removed and is enjoying his golden years with his family.
