Hi, this is Sophie. She's an 8-year-old Golden Retriever. While playing fetch at the dog park, she lept for the ball and landed the wrong way. The vet believes she tore her wrist tendons on her front-right side, which can only be taken care of by surgery. She will need more x-rays, the actual surgery, and then up to 16 weeks of post-surgery care and vet visits.
If Sophie can't get the surgery, the limp won't go away and may become worse. If the surgery is delayed, it might be more difficult and expensive in the future. Outside of this injury, Sophie has received a clean bill of health. Once all the post-surgery is done, the vet believes she will be back to her normal self and be able to run and play like it never happened.
We just don't have the money for this. The surgery itself can range from $4,000 to $6,000. Post-surgery care which includes future x-rays, medication, bandage replacements, and cleanings can bring the whole cost up to $9,000+. We're trying to raise $6,000 which will cover the base cost and allow us to pay for post-surgery costs needed.
