REUBEN needs your help!
Meet Reuben - just a young Labrador pup with heart of gold. When we first bought him into care, he showed no signs of pain but had a bit of a "funny walk". X-rays confirmed the worst - here's some words from our vet:
"Rueben was presented with very severe outward rotation of both hips
on 8th Feb 2018. Both femoral necks had been previously fractured and
were left untreated for several months by his former owner. As a result
the femoral heads [or the ball part of the ball and socket joint] had lost
blood supply and were necrosing [or dieing]. Both hip joints were very
severely degenerative causing this outwardly rotated crab-like gait.
We consulted with veterinary specialists and total hip replacements
were not possible for Rueben. The surgical procedure advised for
improvement in his condition was a femoral head and neck ostectomy
which were performed on separate occasions on 28.2.18 [left side] and
28.3.18 [right side]. He has made considerable improvement with his gait since then. Rueben should be able to live a good life."
Reuben has made a full recovery and is enjoying life to the full! But now, we need to help raise the funds for his surgeries. He is the kindest young lad, excellent manners and deserves every bit of a wonderful life we have now been able to provide!
Our goal we need to cover surgery for Reuben: $2900
