Piper puppy tore one of her ACLs a couple months ago. While trying to medically manage it, she tore the other one. She's been taking the puppy version of Ibuprofen for the past couple months. With the instability she's developed in her legs, surgery is her only option now.
Piper is almost 4 years old. She is my hiking buddy, therapy dog, and everything in between. I got her a couple months after losing my brother to suicide to help me cope. She's been hiking with me all over the state and even canoeing in the boundary waters. I can't keep watching her be in excruciating pain. I know she will never be 100% back to where she was, but I'm hoping the surgery gets her back out on the trail with me.
I've spent approximately 1,300 so far on her visits, xrays, meds, ect... surgery will cost 3,400 per leg plus the presurgical visit and xrays and after care. Her first surgery is scheduled for Nov 10th. Her second surgery will be scheduled 4 to 6 weeks after that. Any donation would help and be much appreciated. Thank you.
