FBRN's sponsors allow us to do wonderful things for our needy frogs. This note came from Paizlee's foster mom, describing the surgery Paizlee underwent last week.
"Paizlee is doing remarkably well. The vet removed 2 teeth that were infected. Boy, does that make a difference in the smell of her breath. She did indeed have an elongated palate and as well, had some sort of abnormality. She had a flap of skin in the back of the palate that was flipped up under itself and inflamed. He said that he had never seen anything quite like it before. She also has a very tiny laryngeal passageway. This may continue to alter her breathing, but she is soooooo much better. It's amazing how quickly we've seen the results. He said that it may take a week or so for the swelling to go down, so it should continue to get much better. Thank you FBRN for doing what you do for our frogs. It is such an honor to be a part of it.
We will continue to fatten her up and then she will be ready for her forever home where she will be the missing piece to someones puzzle. She is a dear one!"
FBRN's sponsors NEVER let us down. Paizlee can breathe now, her inflamed and painful teeth are gone, and she's giving us her best cutie-pie poses as a thank you to all who helped her, whether as sponsors, as monthly donors, or as folks who remember loved ones or celebrate events throughdonations on our memorial page when they click the "in honor of" button.
You are always here for the dogs, and it means so much to them and to the foster families who care for them.
With warm wishes and grateful thanks from FBRN's volunteers and
The Frog Princess
