THE STORY:

Our family has had Dom two years ago that we rescued him from a shelter. They informed us that Dom was best to be put to sleep because of the medical issues he had. We could not see that happen and we brought him home. He has been our best friend, protector and Wow my stress reliever. When time are tough, I look at him and know he has it tougher and still hanging in there for us, so why am I complaining. Dom has Cranial Cruciate Ligament and Anterior Cruciate Ligament Disease. At first he was ok, was in a bit of pain and he had his good days and bad days. He was put on medications for the pain, I started looking up natural ways to heal him, as well as giving him vitamins. At first it seem to be working but one day he collapsed and was crying from pain and we rushed him to the vet. He was put on a stronger medication and we had a dog wheel chair, if you can call it that done for him to help him get around. We were told the only way to help him and try to save him is with surgery. Right now he has rear leg lameness and something called stifle joint. I don't understand much but the bit that I do understand, is that he needs surgery as soon as possible or he will be fully paralyzed. Our vet saids he has a good 65% chance to recover with surgery, which would follow with physical therapy, weight controll, massages, slow activites and other regimens. Without surgery he has less then 2% to make it even if paralyzed. Please, help us! He has suffer already to much, was abandon because of his health problems and left to die. He is a fighter and if you were able to look into his eyes you would see his will to live. Thank you
