Humphrey's Medical Expenses
However, we fell in love with Humphrey the moment we met him. Despite everything he's had to endure, and spending more than half of his life either in a cast or having an external fixator installed, he still loves life and has a heart of gold.
But unfortunately, due to the severity in which his bones were broken, he has continued to have issues with his legs as he has grown. One leg bowed so severely that the plate began to protrude through the skin and separate from the bone.
My wife and I have always done everything that we could to ensure that Humphrey has had the best care possible. Out of pride we have done all we could do to avoid having to start a Go Fund Me account. However, after having 5 total surgeries, including major bone grafting and stem cell therapy, it is becoming increasingly difficult to keep up with all of his medical bills. Humphrey is currently recovering from a derotational osteotomy and still requires further care. In addition to the extensive procedures, his follow-up visits, frequent X-rays, cast changes, and medications have really started to take a toll on us financially. Our credit cards are maxed and we are just scraping by.
We will always continue to do all we can for our beloved Humphrey. You see, to us, he is not "just a dog". Humphrey is our baby. All of our animals are our children. We also have Chester, a liver shunt puppy who was going to be put down had we not adopted him, plus 6 rescue cats. Any help would be greatly appreciated and all funds will be earmarked specifically for Humphrey's care. In the event that Humphrey gets to a point where he is fully recovered, any balance would be donated to a non-profit rescue group.
