Roxy the PTSD Service Dog TPLO fund

My name is Justin and I am a Iraq war Veteran with PTSD & TBI. I use Roxy for a PTSD Service Dog. In the early fall of 2015, Roxy had a TPLO surgery performed on her left leg due to an injury from playing in the snow. During our efforts to collect enough funds for the first surgery she was using her right leg more and adding more weight and pressure to her right side to alleviate the pain on her left. Once we had collected about $4,000 we were finally able to get her surgery pushed through. Her surgery was performed by a very well trusted, talented and caring man named Dr. David Crouch at Western Carolina Veterinary Surgery who also cautioned us that eventually due to her compensation of her leg, it was likely she could have future issues with her right leg. Fast forward two years to early fall of 2017, and we are noticing more and more that Roxy is beginning to have difficulties with her right leg. We are doing everything we possibly can to be proactive pet parents and keep our baby healthy and free of as much pain or mobility issues as possible. We had a preliminary visit scheduled for September 14th, and we found out she does need a TPLO surgery. From past experience we already know we are facing a challenge. After initial visits, the surgery, medications and miscellaneous costs of keeping her in a comfortable and sanitized environment for the first few days of recovery we ended up spending upwards of $4,000 after it was all said and done. If you could please help us by donating we would be forever grateful. Every little bit helps so much. We want Roxy to have a healthy and full recovery and return to work as soon as we possibly can. Thank you all so much. God bless America, our Veterans and our Pit Bulls.
