This is a fund for our 6 month old pitbull. Her family is uniting to raise money for the FHNO surgery and save her hip. Please help support!

A few weeks ago our beautiful, brindle puppy was playing with our other dog in the office. While they were running around Luna caught her leg and twisted it pretty bad. We took her to the vet the next morning and the X-ray showed that she had partially dislocated her right hip. After a few weeks, we took her back for a check up and another X-ray and the doctor have now diagnosed her with Leggs-Perthes Disease. The joint in her hip has lost blood-flow, causing the bone to deteriorate from the socket. Luna is our sweet, 6 month old, family pup and without surgery, she will lose complete use of her right hind leg. We want her to enjoy her life to its fullest potential. Any pet owner knows how expensive this responsibility can become. The vet says she will need a Femoral Head and Neck Ostectomy. The procedure involves removing the damaged bone from her hip and letting it heal. If everything goes well, Luna will begin to recover within 1-2 weeks. Once she's fully healed, Luna can get back to being a happy, playful puppy. Any donations are greatly appreciated; let's give this dog a chance at life.
