“We just fell in love with Roxie’s sweet face the moment we saw her,” said Danielle Martin, Executive Director of Frankie’s Friends. “Cases such as these are the reason our group exists. We’re so happy we’re able to help Roxie and ensure she has many more years with her loving family.”
A veterinarian at Blue Pearl told News 3, it was incredible Roxie was able to get the first six cobbs out. The surgery took place Wednesday. Dr. Anemome Andronescu was able to take out the seventh cobb. The surgery was a success and after Roxie recovered from anesthesia, she started to eat well, which doctors say is a good sign.
Roxie is back home with Hudson and doing much better. Frankie's Friends is continuing to ask for help to raise money for Roxie's follow-up care and to help other pets in Virginia Beach. Click here to Donate.
