Kona’s ACL surgery

Kona is our 5 year old lab that underwent her first TPLO surgery 4 years ago.  Unfortunately she has become part of the 50-80%  that will have the other side torn as well.    When we had her first surgery done we had to see a specialist as she was a puppy and needed a special surgery done to preserve her grow plates.  I feel I am still recovering financially from this first surgery and now we want to provide that same treatment and post surgical care for her this second time around as well.


My husband and I are currently undergoing in-vitro fertilization which has utilized a lot of our savings and credit card usage.  Konas ACL surgery is something we have not anticipated budgeting into expenses this year and another financial stressor that we are struggling with.  We have had pet insurance (Figo) for years to prepare for this but upon consulting with them today, under their new under writer, this surgery will not be covered due to her other knee getting injured 4 years ago!

I am not one to ask for assistance like this but at this time I am at a loss for what else to do to afford this surgery.  Whether it be $1, $5, or $10, I appreciate anyone’s generosity in helpingto allow us to get this surgery done for Kona.  Based on expenses and how much money we are able to put up to afford this surgery we do not have a location for her surgery picked out yet.   If you would prefer to donate to the vet for her surgery please let me know and I will be in contact once we determine where we will take her.

Thank you so much for your consideration in helping us heal up our baby girl!
