Total Chip In necessary: $3000- For surgery to remove stricture in Max’s bladder.

  • If we can raise $800 we can try the balloon procedure. It It most likely won’t work with only one procedure and will require multiples.
  •  If we can get $2500 we can implant a stint that likely will take care of problem but over time will create another stricture because of the scar tissue that will most definitely build up.
  • With $3000 we can do an actual dissection surgery which will involve cutting away the stricture and being the more permanent solution without future problems. Of course, this procedure has it’s downsides too, but overall will be the most long term solution.


Whatever we get, C4C must proceed with surgery for Max.

We have spent almost $800 again last week on more diagnostic tests at UGA and are currently at Nesbit Ferry animal hospital spending more and more $$$.

Max is the sweetest boy and SO very worth every penny. Please won’t you help?
