Noah Needs a New Knee

Noah is a young lab rescue who needs your help! Until recently, Noah's health has been in great condition. A couple of weeks ago, I noticed that Noah's left hind leg was shaking after running. A few days later he was unable to put any weight on that same leg. Something was clearly wrong. Upon taking him to the vet, and getting a series of X-rays, it was discovered that he is suffering from a cranial cruciate ligament tear (ACL tear) and hip dysplasia.

Until this is fixed, Noah will be in constant pain and unable to use that leg to walk. Surgery is his only option. Without surgery this injury will only worsen over time and the leg ultimately will not be usable. Because he is unable to use his hind left leg, he is putting more weight and pressure on the hind right leg. This leads that leg to weaken more quickly than it otherwise would and could even lead to future issues. In short, without this surgery, Noah's overall health is compromised. He is only five years old so this surgery will make a massive improvement in Noah’s quality of life moving forward. The money donated will cover all of Noah’s medical costs including: the surgery, arthroscopy, platelet therapy, X-rays, and post-operative visits. Any amount you can donate is greatly appreciated. I can’t imagine my life without this dog by my side.
