I wanted to share Dukes story with you.
Duke is my Saint Bernard and hasnt had a break since I brought him home. In August he was diagnosed with Addisons disease at an early age of 8 months old. For those of who do not know, Addisons Disease, It is a disease with symptoms that are common in many other ailments, making diagnosis difficult and sometimes a process of elimination. But once Addison's is correctly diagnosed, a properly treated dog can live a normal active life.
Duke has managed this and it has been under control for a couple months.
Just recently it was brought to my attention that Duke will need a double hip replacement. Due to the size of his large breed this is the best and only option so that he is not in any pain or discomfort and so that he can live a happy and normal life.
For most of you who do not know hip dysplasia is not covered under vet insurance, the most it covers is up to 500 dollars, and each hip is 6500.
As of now I am looking for some help with one hip plus all other expenses getting him to the surgery.
Duke is the sweetest big teddy bear, with a personality that will light up any room when he comes walking in. He is also there to sit by your side and to get a good scratch on the ears.
I am looking for your love and generosity to get through this time
Thank you for listening to my story
