Quinn's Surgery Fund

Quinn, my smooth collie, took a fall off the teeter and injured his wrist. He ended up having a carpal hyperextension injury and had surgery, and ended up having full arthrodesis.

The surgery to fuse his carpal bones cost over $3,000, and his recovery will take a few months.  This happened in March 2017 at an AKC agility trial in Sacremento, California.

The funds will be used to pay for the surgery, which was charged on my Care Credit Card, so I have 12 months to pay without interest, which is a huge help.  

Quinn is five years old, and such an amazing boy. He loves Barn Hunt, Nosework, Herding, and he's learning Rally. He had a sprained toe for most of 2016 which kept him from doing any jumping in agility or herding, and after that was healed and strong he started agility again. This was his second agility trial after his sprained toe was completely healed.  He sprained his toe when he was herding.  

Quinn is one of my heart dogs, and I love him completely, and I will be working very hard towards his recovery. He will be going through physical therapy and receiving the best care.

If I get any financial help to pay for his surgery and his care, I would be forever grateful and thankful.

Just wanted to post a copy of Quinn's bill from Cottonwood Animal Hospital, to be completely honest about the costs of his surgery and care. I don't see that I can upload a PDF to this GoFundMe Update, so I updated it to my blog where it can be viewed:

Cottonwood is an awesome hospital and highly recommended by the dog sports community here in Utah. The vet, Dr. Sherburne, called me regularly with updates about how Quinn was doing.

If anyone willing to help with Quinn's bills would rather pay the vet directly, that would be very understood and also greatly appreciated!

Quinn is doing really well! He got to chew on a yummy bully stick today. His activity is still very limited so I'm giving him other things to do like chew. I am trying to clicker train him to lick his lip, as that's one of the few things he is really able to do.

His spirits are good, he wants to play with his stick, and sometimes he plays a little with the other dogs, but I cant let him do much but bark. Another week and he gets his first cast change.

So far so good. <3

Quinn had a good night at home, his first night after his surgery. He slept well. He's eating well, his appetite is good, but he hasn't pooped yet. Hopefully that will happen soon!

I was at CCA agility when this happened and I felt so bad for both of you. Wishing him a quick recovery and back to a happy Collie life.
