Stella's Medical Bills

Donation protected
On Saturday, March 25th, 2023 during the transition of our 2 dogs on a doggie play date, Stella was hit by a small SUV leaving her with two broken legs. Stella was rushed to the VRC where she received medical attention right away and x-ray scans along with several other tests. Stella's x-rays showed that she had two broken bones in her right leg and another break in her left leg. Stella had stable vitals with some minor bruising but no concerning internal bleeding from her breaks. At the time, they were not sure if Stella would be able to keep her right leg due to how bad the break was. They were concerned about major nerve damage that would render it useless. Stella was released to us late Saturday night from the VRC with two leg splints to stabilize her legs and medication to help with everything before her surgery that they suggested being done at some point in the upcoming week. On Monday, March 27th Stella was re-evaluated by our vet at Applebrook Inn where she received more confirming tests before surgery and our vet consulted with the specialist/surgeon regarding both legs. Her re-evaluation of Stella's tests showed no concerning signs of disabling nerve damage. With that information, we scheduled her surgery to save both legs for Wednesday, March 29th to provide Stella with the best chance of being able to fully recover to her happy-go-lucky self. Stella has 4-5 weeks of recovery for her legs with routine weekly checkups. Stella is currently recovering at home and has been showing good signs that everything is healing according to the surgeon at today's (4-1-23) appointment. If you can, please help and spread the word to help assist with our medical bills for Stella.

If you have a moment please post a fun happy picture of you and your fur baby below with their name because we would love to share the happiness that they all bring into our lives!
