Melly Needs Your Help To Be Pain Free
Melly is a very sad, poor Newfoundland ex-breeding dog. She has what appears to be a ruptured cruciate ligament and will need a TPLO (Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy).
This darling girl has had no exercise and has been used for breeding so has little to no muscle tone and is also overweight. All this means that weight baring has been extremely painful and she has been unable to get up and so had laid in her own urine. She arrived at Many Tears matted and miserable and we will be bathing and spaying her but her leg is so bad she really needs a kind specialist vet who can perform the much needed operation as soon as possible and at the lowest cost possible.
Please donate towards our estimated cost of this and if you are a vet or you know a kind vet that will do the operation as cheaply as possible please do contact us. You will find details of how to do this on this page of our website https://www.manytearsrescue.org/ContactUs.php
As always we are so grateful for your help and any money raised that is not spent for Melly's care will be used towards the care of another dog in need if specialist care.
Her friend Mianda is also at the specialist with her and also needs this operation on both legs. She will have her first surgery tomorrow and another on Monday.
We are advised that provisionally the cost is £3,500 per leg, plus the cost of Xrays and medication for them. We have no guarantees they will be fully mobile after the surgery but they will certainly have less pain and this will make such a positive difference to them both
