Mateo's Medical Bills
Organized by: Daniela Palacio
Mateo is my lovable but slightly over weight dog. I've had him for almost 9 years and although he is old he still has the spirit of a very daring young pup. During the night something must of scared him or piqued his interest enough to try jump over the baby gate that separates his room from the living room. Sadly, Although he did make it over said barrier he did so at a cost. silly old hefty Mateo tore his cruciate ligament. This is not the first time this has happened, 2 years ago he tore his right ligament and this time it's his left. I kick myself everyday for not getting him doggy insurance after the first time. I thought that he could not be so dumb as to try another crazy acrobatic move, but I was mistaken. This time around his vet bills are 3,800 and I am trying desperately to come up with the money. Please help me give my dog another bionic knee. He might be dumb fat and old but he is a sweetie.
