Jill’s Story About her dog, Chloe
About a month ago, I adopted a 6 month puppy from Jackson County Animal Services. Her name is Chloe. They said she is an Austrian Shepherd/Great Pyrenees cross. She had a limp in her front right leg and they put in her medical records, 11/6/18 “Front legs feel stable and not showing pain.” I was told that her limp was simple growing pains and it’ll get better.
It took a month before my veterinarian could get Chloe in. By this time Chloe’s limping got worse along with the colder wetter weather. The vet felt Chloe’s leg and asked if she could do an x-ray. I agreed since this limp was getting worse. Chloe was diagnosed with UAP fracture.
Chloe has already bonded with me, my dog and cat. She’s part of my family now. I’ve already paid for her to be enrolled in training school which took a few months to save up for. She would get beginning, intermediate and advanced education. I had to push the start date back since I need Chloe healed up. I give her glucosamine, MSM, and Chondroitin supplements.
Chloe’s Surgery Plan
The Jackson County Animal Services was going to the surgery until the doctor looked at Chloe’s x-rays. Chloe is going to need a pin put in her elbow and needs to have a specialist take care if it. Of course the price of a specialist is extremely higher than the pounds surgery. The estimate from the specialist is $3400-$3600. The good news is Jackson County Animal Services is going to pay $500 towards the surgery cost. Now Jill and Chloe are asking for help to raise the remaining balance.
