At the ripe age of 8months old, our loving dog Oliver needs a hip replacement...
This is as shocking to us, as it must be for you to read this.
Because of Oliver’s age, he’s only just started to lift his leg when you goes to wee (puppies will usually squat to go to the bathroom up to 6 months of age) because of this, he’s still a but shaking on his legs
Just another day at the park, on a walk, Oliver goes up to a tree to mark, lifts his legs, and then all of a sudden I’m met with wailing cries.
Oliver has popped his hip out, a very severe and painful ailment for a dog.
Taking him to the closest vet, we’re met wth another trauma, a $750 consultation, followed by a $400 observation fee, this is before treatment has even started.
Sedated and in the clinic we’re told by dislocating his hip Oliver has damaged the socket, and will need to have surgery to fix this, and then to add salt to the wound another $700 gets added to the bill for their attempts to re put his hip back into place.
Long story short, we’ve already paid nearly $2000, just for our poor dog to come out in the same state he went into the vet.
The surgery all up will be around $7000 to $8000, not including the physiotherapy he’ll need later.
Any donations will so greatly appreciated, all money from this campaign goes straight to the health and recovery of Oliver.
