Fab has 2 giant decubitus ulcers, one on each elbow, and four smaller ones, two on each back foot.

After three weeks of treatment including medications, surgery, bandage changes, constant care and spending over $800 on vet bills, the vet is now telling us that he doesn't think Fab will ever walk again and that we should consider euthanasia, but we don't think that he is beyond recovery. He is still attempting to move and walk with our assistance, but he needs intervention NOW or he may never fully recover.

While searching the internet for information on his condition, I found a rehabilitative line of products that promises to give Fab the best chance at a complete recovery, but we have no more money or credit to spend to purchase these items. I even contacted the company and asked them if I could market their product to vets in Wichita in exchange for their product, but that isn't something they are interested in.

The products needed:
Full length adjustable Dogleggs' $175.00
DogLeggs' Hock Sock $73.00 each (2 needed)
DogLeggs' Tarsal Support $89.00 each (2 needed)
DogLeggs' Rear Leg Hobble System Price not disclosed on the website
Dogleggs' Surgi-Sox Torso and Leggings $102.00

Shipping & Handling and Tax will be extra
There will also be additional vet bills to order and fit the Hobble Leg System

Company History
DogLeggs began with one dog suffering with a common yet difficult
to treat condition, an elbow hygroma. Grief, a 10 year old Rottweiler,
developed a hygroma in one elbow. Greif ’s veterinarian suggested
adapting a human knee pad or perhaps applying a padded bandage to
his leg to protect his elbow from the hard surfaces he liked to lay on.
However, he warned that he had never seen any attempt to pad the
elbow be successful. He further explained that once this condition
was diagnosed it rarely goes away. After much consideration, the
first pair of DogLeggs was created. Greif ’s hygroma improved within
48 hours and was completely resolved five days later. Inspired by this
success and encouraged by the veterinarian, we began marketing
the DogLeggs. In the 12 years since, over 20,000 pairs of DogLeggs
have been sold worldwide. As DogLeggs’ success grew, veterinarians
began calling us for effective bandage solutions for their patients.
As a result, the DogLeggs’ product line has expanded, making
DogLeggs’ the leader in therapeutic and rehabilitative bandage
solutions for companion animals.
