Last weekend my dog mello, a three year old blue pit, was stolen and I posted all over face book groups trying to find him. On Monday morning i was contacted by Howard county animal saying they had found my dog. unfortunately when they did he was hurt really badly. X-rays showed his left hip socket was shattered and his femur was broke right above his knee. We took him to the vet and he referred us to a specialist. I have been calling around and all that I have called are booked up until Oct. There was one vet that had an opening Monday but their estimate was 3000 – 5000 dollars and that is just something we don’t have. I did find a vet that gave me a very detailed email explaining the surgery to repair it and the amputation surgery as well. So my boyfriend and I have decided that we would like to go through with the amputation surgery for mello because we think it will be the better option for him less chance of an arthritic leg and a better chance and him being up and moving quicker and being a dog. The amputation will be 1500 and we can put 1000 down and them pay the rest off in payments. I am working hard to come up with the 1000 to put down.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
