Last Hope set up a special needs dog campaign- “Nine Needs You! Please Give $9 for Nine to Make Him a Perfect Ten”- to raise funds for orthopedic surgery for “Nine” a Sharpei/Hound mix. You, our generous supporters, have answered that plea. Thank you.
“Nine” arrived at Last Hope from a Virginia shelter with a badly broken leg that had healed incorrectly on its own. He uses both hind legs like a frog so he can walk. We took him to a specialist who planned to make a 3D printer model of the CAT scan of his leg to see if corrective surgery were even possible. The model and, consequently, the surgery have been delayed so we took “Nine” for a second opinion at another top veterinary surgeon. The second specialist advised against surgery now. He explained that the surgery can be done by either of them, but the real question was whether “Nine’s” life would be improved by such a surgery. He felt the chances of improvement were very small while the chances of making things much worse were much higher.
And now for his explanation of Plan B: The second specialist felt that the best course would be to treat “Nine” medically with an anti-inflammatory such as Rimadyl as well as glucosamine/chondroitin. He said that whoever adopts “Nine” should realize that he can’t go for extended walks but would get along just fine in a backyard. (“Nine” can run.)
Last Hope plans to follow this course of intervention, and to use the funds already donated for “Nine” toward his current and future medical tests and expenses while in our care, plus after “Nine” is adopted.
Yes, we are looking for a wonderful home for this wonderful dog who has compensated so well for his terrible injuries, yet remains so loving. To find out more about adopting “Nine”, contact our dog coordinator Letty at email@example.com.
