No More Limping Oscar!
Today, he went back to the vet for more diagnostics and we have gotten to the bottom of it.
He has a painful shoulder bone cyst/spur and a tear in the cartilage.
We have been told this is a common issue in larger dogs and that surgery can repair the injury and help him return to 100%. The surgery is necessary to fix this problem and to prevent his current and future pain... as well as prevent inevitable arthritis.
The total estimate was $1700 so we are calling on you for help! And boy do we need it! It has been a tough week for Dogs XL and its pooches.
We have dogs in hospice care (Poinsettia), orthopedic surgery pending for two dogs and orthopedic recovery (Noelle), and Parvo (Carson) all hitting us hard emotionally and financially. Please help Oscar and Dogs XL Rescue by donating to this surgical cost! We (Dogs XL and Oscar) can not thank you enough!
