The Cranial Cruciate Ligament (CCL) is one of two ligaments that cross (cruciate means cross) in the knee joint. This ligament is the same as the ACL ligament (anterior cruciate ligament) in man.

When the cranial cruciate ligament ruptures , the joint becomes unstable causing pain and lameness.

Smaller dogs and cats are repaired using suture material placed outside the joint in a manner so that it supports the joint in a similar way to the cranial cruciate ligament.
so she dont lose are ability to walk run and play like a normal dog.

also she needs both knees fixed

The condition known as medially luxating patella is when the kneecap goes out of its proper position and rests on the inside (medial) of the knee. This condition is also known as medial patellar luxation or MPL. If you put your right hand on your own right kneecap, you can feel it located in the middle of the knee. Now move your hand to the left side (inside or medial) of your right knee. This is where a medially luxating patella rests. Your dog may seem to run normally to you except that once in awhile he or she may pick up a leg and carry it for a bit.

This fund to rasie enough money to have Bella's legs fixed.

I am on ssi and having a really hard time. I have never ask any one for help before but for my Bella I will. I only ask for you to give what you can even a couple dollars it all helps, please give !

my Vet Dr Anthony is the vet that did Bella''s Physical exam and said Bella needed surgery. Dr Anthony prefers that I go a specialist, That specializes in this type of surgery. and of course this is mush more expensive!

Thank you all for helping. My Bella sends her love
