Handipets Pets In Need

My dog, Poncho, needs surgery, please help!

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on January 5, 2009


past year my grandmother passed away, I got her little dog and love him
very much. Friday before Christmas he fell and tore the ligament in his
leg. We went to the vet hospital here in town and just that night was
$483.00. Monday we had an appointment for a surgery consult and that
was another $75.00. We have had another appointment since and it was
$30.00. We are drained and our dog still needs surgery to correct his

The procedure: I was told we have two options, first they could
‘build’ a new ligament with wire or second they would make his joint
solid where he could not move it. They don’t even know which way would
be better for sure until they operate and see what’s going on for sure.
I was told there are only 2 specialists here in Kansas who can do it. I
have found a third who said he could most likely do it, but suggested
the vet I was already with. I have been quoted anywhere from 1200 to
2200 for the surgery.

In August I went to part time so I can finish my degree, so my
checks are cut in half of what they used to be. With the economy
slowing my husband gets sent home early or is given an extra day off
each week. Over the course of six months this has caught up with us.
Please help my puppy. His leg almost needs to be recasted (from him
chewing on it), but instead of paying for that were hoping to raise
enough just to go on with the surgery.
