Mazzie The Marvel's New Knee!

Miss Mazzie is in need of a new knee, two legs just ain't cuttin it! This sweet tripod chocolate tore her back right CCL (similar to the human ACL) and is now in need of surgery. 

Upon meeting with the orthopedic specialist, I was told that not only did Mazzie tear her back right CCL, but she also has a dislocating patella in that same leg and her back left hip has significant dysplasia and arthritis. That in combination with her advanced age and weight, is going to make for a difficult surgery and rough road to recovery! 

Due to the complexity of the surgery, and multiple fixes that will need to be done while she's under, the orthopedic surgeon quoted me at about $6900+, including aftercare and post op medications/therapies/supplies. I'm reaching out in hopes that I can round up enough donations to get my sweet girl back up and hopping around pain free!

Any extra donations will go to Mazzie's continued care as she ages. I'm hoping to invest in a doggie "wheelchair" for increased ease of mobility in order to preserve her joints, and as the chances of a subsequent tear are high, I would like to be prepared in the event of another untimely injury!

I have added a link to Agave Dogs Rescue (where I adopted my sweet old lady), who has been very helpful throughout this process and has graciously agreed to help raise additional funds for Mazzie's care. 

Any and all donations are SO very appreciated! 

Wags and Kisses,
Mazzie and her Mom
