TPLO Surgery for Bozo

Hi, I'm Bozo.
I'm a Doxle (Dachshund-Beagle Mix) and I just turned 5 years old last month!

Two weeks ago, I went to the Dog park for the first time since the start of the pandemic. The Dog park has been closed for 2 months. The very first day it reopened, my mom and dad took me there! I was soooooo happy and excited! I started running around and playing with one of my dog buddy whom I haven't seen in weeks! And BAM, it happened. I made a wrong turn, and I hurt my right rear leg. I screamed and couldn't put weight on my leg anymore.

My owners hurried me to the vet. After a physical check and two X-Rays, we got the diagnostic:  Cruciate ligament rupture.

My vet kindly and patiently explained I have to get a major orthopedic surgery to repair it. It's called the TPLO surgery , have you heard of it?

I want to be able to walk and run freely again, and the surgery is my only option. My mom and dad want the best for me. Unfortunately, it's breaking their hearts to not be able to cover the cost of this extensive surgery. They need your help.

The cost of the surgery is $5,000. It covers everything: Surgery, Anesthesia, Pre & Post Op X-Rays, Overnight Post Op, Medication and Physiotherapy. 

The veterinary hospital has a spot available for the surgery on July 20th. Mom and Dad took the appointment. Until then I'm taking anti-inflammatory and pain killers drugs.

Will you help me walk again? Mom, Dad and I will be eternally grateful.

Thank you for reading my story. If you have any question, feel free to reach out to my owners who will be more than happy to give your more details, updates or send you pictures/videos of me !
