Yoshi's surgery (amputation)


First of all thank you for taking the time to look into our page...  Yoshi is our 1yr old French Bulldog, at about 7months old he was hit by a car and diagnosed with brachial plexus (basically has no feeling from the elbow down).  Since he partially used his leg we thought we can keep it with the hope it regained more feeling later.  That he did (partially), he uses it to brace himself at times when running after the birds and cats in our yard, but it has gotten to the point where Yoshi now is doing more damage to his leg than good.  Being that he can't feel the leg, there are times he comes inside from playing bleeding from the scrapes he's causing himself (which in turn can cause infections).  We also can no longer take him on walks for the leg just drags and scrapes itself more.  Coming to the grips that he needs to have the leg amputated was no easy decision to make but our family believes it is the right decision to better help Yoshi live a healthier life.  After speaking with our local Vet the surgery would cost him to spend a few night at the hospital and about $2500 (as you can see we aren't asking for the whole amount, just something to ease our cost).  Seeing how we are still paying for the expenses from his emergency visit 6+ months ago we would appreciate any donations you can make.  Nothing is too small.

Thank you!
