Elsie is our American Bulldog that was born 12/11/12. Last October, Elsie began to have the occasional limp. The limping became more and more pronounced as time passed. We took Elsie to our local vet and followed the prescribed treatment of rest and massage. Unfortunately, the limp continued and Elsie began to visibly suffer. Again, Elsie visited the vet. Elsie was then prescribed a series of anti-inflammatory medications and joint supplements. This proved to be unsuccessful in eliminating Elsie’s pain. 

After consulting our vet, he recommended that we make an appointment with Veterinary Orthopedic Sports Medicine (VOSM). Dr. Sherman Canapp had x-rays and ultrasounds done to find out the exact cause of Elsie’s pain. Dr. Canapp has diagnosed Elsie with Bilateral elbow sclerosis and tendonitis. If left untreated, this condition will leave Elsie permanently lame within a few years. The only solution left to Elsie is surgery. This surgery is relatively simple, but very expensive. In addition to the surgery, Elsie will be required to undergo extensive physical therapy.

Elsie is such a playful and loving dog. It breaks our hearts to know that she is suffering and in pain whenever she runs or walks for prolonged periods. She so loves to run that it’s terrible to think that she may never be able to do this again. We are hoping that everyone that reads this post, or finds this page, will help us give Elsie a long and happy life without the pain she is currently enduring.

We are looking to our Facebook family and friends to help us raise the money needed for her surgery and post operative therapy. By clicking on the Contribute button, you’ll be able to help us fund Elsie’s much needed surgery. The process is quite simple and you’ll be able to choose the amount you wish to donate…every little bit helps.

Please help us rise money towards Elsie’s surgery by passing this on to your friends. Help us improve Elsie's quality of life!!

God bless you!
