If you care for an elderly, injured or special needs pet, you've come to the right place!
Well, first post on this board, which I just found (amazing info by the way). Now, last Saturday (12'th) my mom was having a plant sale, Emma always gets excited when people come into the yard, she needs to greet them. She was running around the corner to go to the front gate when she slipped, her left paw twisted and she fell on it. It is an extremely bad break, its a dual vertical (don't know that medical term). We went to the vet as fast as possible. We got xrays done (which I will post below) and some pain meds and a splint put on her, and that cost $400. Now, we had three options, put her down (not an option, we love her way too much), plates/pins, or amputate. Now, to do the pins/plates or amputate would around $4000, we do not have that kind of money. The vet said it might heal on its own if we can keep her leg stabilized (which so far is incredibly hard, since dogs do have to go out side to do there business). We came to the conclusion that she absolutely NEEDS the surgery if we want to keep her. So, surgery is scheduled for this coming Thursday (24th). Now when we do this, we are going to be in the negative big time. I started a website about Emma, and in the last 4 days, we have raised just over $1000 which is amazing! Now, I don't know if we are going to be able to hit the $4000 by Thursday. It would be amazing if people would donate to Emma, it would mean so much.
