We hope to get our happy dog again, so he can run and play like he used to do. This fundraiser will help us to get him back.

The most common knee injury in the dog is rupture of the Cranial Cruciate Ligament (CCL), also frequently referred to as the Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL). This injury can occur at any age and in any breed, if this damage goes untreated, it most commonly leads to complete rupture and possibly damage to the medial meniscus of the knee. The meniscus acts as a cushion in the knee. Untreated legs usually become very arthritic and painful from the instability. Bradley injured his back right leg and we were told he need it to get TPLO (Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy) a $3500.00 surgery, we were heartbroken, because we didn’t have that kind of money, but we love our pets, so after applying for Care Credit, we were approved for $1000.00, I decided to find other ways to raise the rest of the money and that’s how We found out about this website. We also decided to go for a second opinion after a friend told us about her dog and the bsame issue, so we went on 11/13/10 to see the new Vet, he told us that Bradley is a good candidate for TTA (Tibial Tubercle Advancement) surgery, this is another leg-geometry-altering procedure which accomplishes an effect similar to TPLO's by altering the dog's bone structure in a different way to achieve the result of lessening the TPA but the recovery time is less as well for the price $1700.00, but the bad news is that he will need the same surgery on his back left knee sometime next year, that’s why we are leaving they fundraise open but made changes. We are happy to report that thanks to family and friends, we have the money for his right leg and he will be going in next week, but now we still have to pay the credit card off so we can use it again for the left knee. Bradley is 3 years old, American Stafford Terrier full of energy because he can’t drain it running anymore.

Any help will be appreciated!!

Thank you in advance.
