Balto's Surgery & Rehab

$1,860 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 24 people in 7 days
My sweet dog, Balto, has a slipped disk and hematoma causing him loss of his back legs. He needs surgery and rehabilitation to correct this problem. The surgeon is very hopeful as Balto still has touch sensitivity and motor function. He is my love and is the sweetest dog. He loves to cuddle and I need Balto now more than ever since my nephew just passed away suddenly.

Balto is only 8 years old and has the ability to recover. His vet bills are very expensive and he needs help covering the costs.

He has already had a neuro exam and MRI, pain meds and muscle relaxers and hospitalization fees costing $6,450. His Surgery will cost an additional $5,845--schedule for today. It will cost $915 to $1250 for hospitalization (estimated 7 days) and $250 to &350 for Level 1 physical therapy (not sure yet for how long).

Any assistance you can provide will be greatly appreciated! I will keep you posted on his progress.

Balto is finally home! He still has a ways to go to heal & work on walking & going to the bathroom on his own. But I'm so proud of him for his progress and glad to have him home.

Balto has transitioned off his IV meds and onto oral. He is working hard to stand up and walk. The doctor said it will take about 4 weeks for recovery. He will have to work hard to regain his mobility but the doctor says Balto is a fighter.

Family went to visit today and Balto was comforted by us as much as he was a comfort for us. Another day or two in the hospital and he should be ready to come home.

Balto does have motor movement. He's reluctant to do his rehab (as any of us would be just a couple days post-op) but the doctor is optimistic about his recovery. Hope to hear more later tonight from the doctor.
