Melly Needs Your Help To Be Pain Free

£5,387 of £5,000 goal

Raised by 152 people in 28 days
Created December 23, 2018

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.

Melly has had her surgery today and is now in recovery. Please keep her in your thoughts.
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

As you can see Melly has had a bath and groom and is looking so much better. She is on pain killers and is walked for a maximum of 3 minutes 4 times a day. She cannot put her full weight on her hind leg and is clearly suffering. The vet who saw her when she arrived manipulated this and felt a big cruciate operation was needed. A wonderful specialist vet has agreed to do this and Melly is booked in for X-rays Wednesday and for surgery on Thursday. We are so very grateful to those who have donated especially as Mianda the Newfoundland Melly came in with was also sent for X-rays of her hips. These came back showing nothing wrong but she clearly has problems as she only walks a little way before lying down. We are hoping to get to the bottom of this, and the specialist seeing Melly has agreed to see Mianda as well. Both these dogs are so kind and gentle and both deserve the chance of pain free lives and loving homes.
