Dug’s knee surgery

$550 of $2,600 goal

Raised by 17 people in 4 months
This is Dug! I adopted him from Belly Rubs Basset Rescue in June 2015. In February 2016, Dug started having trouble walking with his back legs. The vet found a host of issues with all his joints. In November 2017, Dug damaged his left knee hiking. The orthopedist has said Dug has damaged both CCL and will need surgery and rehab to repair them. Dug doesn’t need surgery right now, but will need it before the year is out most likely. Dug has insurance but they only pay 80%. The surgery for both knees is roughly $5000. He’ll also need rehab for a couple months.

You can follow Dug at Dug the Adventure Dog on Twitter.

Just so you have an idea of the cost...this was for the 2nd opinion. Healthy Paws will not cover the $120 office call. They may not cover the hip x-rays. So only $320 is eligible. They will reimburse me $262. Maybe. Dugs benefit year starts in July. I can’t remember the date. If we hit it, I’ll only get back $12.

We went to University of Missouri Vet Hospital today to get a 2nd opinion. It’s official...Dug will need bilateral TPLO. Each knee is estimated at $3800. With therapy, drugs, and other things, like a sling, This will likely cost over $8000. Dug has Health insurance which will cover 80%. But exam fees are not covered. And you have to pay upfront. I am hoping to have the amount by November.

I will also be adding things he needs to his amazon wishlist (Dug the Adventure Dog) if you prefer stuff instead of cash.

Thanks so much for supporting Dug!
