Digby is a young dog my husband and I found on the side of the road on our way to our Christmas holiday with my family. It is not hard to notice how small he is or his severe limp. To our surprise, he is the most mild-mannered and kindest dog we have ever met. Within minutes of picking him up, he began to give us kisses and along our travels we found that he is a leaner! This dog, who should easily be 45-50 lbs, weighs a mere 28 lbs.
There is a local veterinary hospital that was open the day before Christmas. Digby was examined and x-rayed. The doctor then told us that he has a fractured femoral neck. This injury is 2-3 weeks old and could have easily been caused by getting hit by a car. At this point, the only way for him to get better is to undergo surgery.
The surgery he needs to have is called a FHO or Femoral Head Ostectomy. This is a surgical procedure that removes the femoral head and neck from the femur and allows his muscles to support his hip. His range of motion will be decent, he will be able to walk normally, and his pain will be completely diminished.
This procedure will cost close to $1000. We are asking your help to give Digby a new, happy life. Any dollar amount, whether $5 or $50, will help us in our goal to give Digby a healthy, loving life he deserves so much!
