The only option that is benificial for our bootychunk is to have surgery to repair and replace that ligament. It is a $3500 surgery in which a specialist surgeon has to fly out from northern California to perform. There is also a very rigorous physical therapy plan in place for 8 weeks after the surgery. With the vet saying that Harley is in perfect health especially for a 9 year old dog, both us and the vet are confident that she will regain full use of her legs with the surgery and PT.
Of course, timing has a mind of its own. Currently, Jess and I are in a bit of a financial pickle. Between preparing for Jess's self sponsorship through a police academy in a few months and a very large car maintenance bill, money is pretty tight. Also this surgery ideally needs to happen within the next month or so because of a couple factors. One being that we do not want Harley to be in pain longer and to lessen the stress that she puts on her other leg. The other reason is also that the surgeon usually gets booked up by the holiday season. So here we are hoping we could get some help with making our chunk of love feel better. Even if someone donates a penny, we would be eternally grateful. Even for those who reach out to us (and who already have) to help with anything regarding her recovery, your generosity will never go unnoticed.
Again thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts for even reading our page! It means the world to us!
