Watson is an incredibly special chocolate lab who has been in our care since the beginning of September, 2012. He is an extremely large dog with severe orthopedic issues in all four of his legs, and lots of arthritis. Watson was found by the side of the road (just south of Bellingham, WA) in June of 2011. He weighed over 150lbs. and was morbidly obese. His skin and fur was in rough condition, and his claws were so long, they were growing into the pads of his feet. The Good Samaritan who has had him for the past year has been able to take about 35lbs. off of him, and he is now about 117lbs. Because he is such a large dog, structurally, my veterinarian wants him to stay about this weight. However, because he was so overweight for an unknown period of time, his right ACL is now completely ruptured. He also has a spinal impingement causing neurological problems, and he tends to "knuckle" his left rear foot over, walking on the top of it. I am an animal massage therapist and canine water therapist, owner of "Doggone Day Spaw". We want to do everything we can to help Watson be the best and most comfortable he can be. This fundraiser is to provide regular veterinary care for him, and possibly to get him TPLO surgery for his right knee. His pain medications alone are close to $200/month. Thank you so much for taking the time to read his story, and for sharing anything you can to help with his care... - Wags and Wishes!
