Harper has a severe and rare fracture to her growth platelet in her front leg, unknown as to how this fracture happened, it needs to be repaired. Because of this fracture, Harpers left leg is unable to grow due to the severity of the fracture, and her left leg has now turned inward and she ambulates with a painful limp. On July 31st, Harper will undergo a surgery at Cornell Animal Hospital where they will remove half of her growth platelet in hopes that it will relieve the pressure allowing her bone to grow. Cornell is hopeful for this surgery to work, however cannot provide a guarantee as there is not enough clinical statistics to support the condition. Harper will have to spend three nights recovering at Cornell, and will be in a cast or brace, for a minimum of three months. It is crucial this surgery happens as soon as possible as she is a rapid going puppy. Anything and everything will help poor little Harpers road to recovery!
