Help Fix Regal’s Torn ACL

$480 of $2,500 goal

Raised by 7 people in 10 months
About three weeks ago, we noticed our 4.5 year old golden mix, Regal, had a small limp. We took him to our vet, where he was put on an anti-inflammatory and advised to rest. We followed the vet’s directions, but his mom left town for a trip. When she came home a few days later, Regal was so excited to see his mom that he over exerted himself, and all of a sudden lost all mobility in one of his hind legs!

We immediately rushed him to have X-Rays done, and we were referred to an orthopedic surgeon. The orthopedic surgeon said Regal had fully torn his ACL, and he was recommending TPLO surgery. TPLO, or tibial-plateau-leveling osteotomy, is a surgery performed on dogs to stabilize the stifle joint after ruptures of the cranial cruciate ligament (ACL). Although there are other surgical options other than a TPLO that are less expensive, for a young active dog a TPLO is usually the gold standard treatment, with quickest return to normal function. 

To paint you a picture of our pup, Regal is happiest when he’s running through the dog park, chasing balls across the yard, swimming in the lake, and rolling in the grass. Without this surgery, he may never get to experience his favorite things in the same way again. And that breaks our heart. 

Although we know there’s so many worthy causes out there to support, we’re hoping you’d be willing to contribute to this surgery for our dog, Regal. We are newlyweds and still trying to work our finances out. Our bad luck came in three (as it normally does), and this surgery would definitely put us in a financial situation that’s not ideal. We’ve canceled our 1-year anniversary trip to pay for half of this $5,000 surgery, and we are hoping some generous friends, family members, and strangers will help to pitch in for Regal and for us. 

You can read more about us and Regal on our blog at LEDtreats.com. Thanks for considering!

Love,


Melissa & Joey
