As if the financial burdens gets larger, our dog Kaya decides it's a good time to tear her ACL (cruciate ligament) in her Right knee. We sedated her today and took radiographs. We had an ortho specialist consult with me and look at her rads. BOTH knee's will need to be done. Both have effusion present. After I picked myself up off he ground I came to the realization that we need help. With all of our medical costs coming up, we just don't have enough. If you can find it in your heart to donate, we REALLY appreciate it.
EACH knee surgery will be $3500-$5000.
She is only a year and half old and will benefit greatly the sooner we can do sx on her Right knee. That one is worse.
The post op recovery for her sx will be 12 weeks, on leash, no stairs, no jumping, running etc. We will be making our Guest room our room so we don't have to carry her upstairs. We are so very greatful for anything you can donate. Even if $5, We will be so indebted to you and your kindness. Our animals are our kids and they get everything they need. In our eyes, she is not "Just a dog." She is our little girl. She deserves to move without pain. We will keep you updated as things progress.
"What doesn't kill us, only makes us stronger"
Update: Since the original posting, I have had to take an indefinite leave from my career as a veterinary technician. My neck pain and back pain are too extreme for the long days. It is one of the most physically demanding jobs there is and in order to give my kids their best mom, I had to step back. I hope to be able to do it again some day but all of my kids, furry and human, need their mama.
