Hershey Kiss' Knee Surgery
Organized by: Tamelina Coburn
EVENT DATE Sep 07, 2016
So, Hershey has to have another surgery - this time on her right knee. My primary vet told me it was time to go see the surgeon. We just came back from seeing the surgeon and she said it needed to be done within the next couple of weeks. I have nothing saved as I was not expecting to have to get it done this soon (it was a grade two in December), and the patella is completely out now. :( She told me if I could pay $150 on the day of the surgery, she would take that and I could make payments for the rest of it - the surgery is needed that badly. I am currently saving up for grad school and paying off my transmission that needed rebuilt. I would appreciate any help and prayers you can give!
Updated: hershey had her surgery yesterday. I had $600 - most of it raised by my Thirty-One business. I still owe the vet $144. Any additional help would be greatly appreciated.
Update: Hershey's surgery is scheduled for December 23rd. I'm still $300 short.
My dog, Hershey, is a five year old chihuahua. When I got her from her previous owner, she was emaciated, had an ear infection, worms, and a bladder infection so bad she screamed whenever we picked her up and peed nothing but blood. She wasn't UTD on shots or spayed. They fed her nothing but human food. She is now at a healthy weight, spayed, UTD on shots, no worms, ear infections, or bladder infections. However, she needs a knee surgery that is going to cost about $800. I have $500 so far. Today she was falling quite a bit because her knee kept giving out on her. She loves to run, but can't even do that anymore :( If you would be willing to help, I would appreciate it.
Any bit would help - won't you help us? I'd love to see my pup run again!
