Recently I took my dog to the vet to see why he does the funny waddle he does... turns out my 10 month old puppy has severe hip dyspepsia and arthritis in both hips, so my vet said he would be better with no hips.
now before you go, "well what the hell kind of vet are you going to?" it is an actual thing called a femoral head Osteotomy and it is basically where they remove the femoral head so the rubbing that is causing my dog consent pain will be gone.
interesting enough the surrounding muscles and developing scar tissue will work to support the area, and act as a false joint. and if all goes well he is expected to be able to behave like a normal dog once all is said and done.
The problem arises with the cost. A FHO isn't cheap and my vet estimated that it would cost between $700-$1000 for one hip. Toby needs BOTH his hips fixed and I have no way of paying for this.
So, I started a Go Fund Me page to hopefully raise enough money to get at least his first hip done soon.
here is the link
If you can help in anyway, prayers, shares, funding, SUPPORTIVE THOUGHTS. anything would be much appreciated.
This is Toby.
And yes, this 45lb-50lb mass of fluff is actually only about 10 months old. his birthday is may 20th.
Thank you for reading this far,
