Raising the funds to pay for Misha's TPLO surgery.

Misha the Lovedog needs surgery. She has what is called a Cranial Cruciate Ligament Injury. What is it? Its a torn or ruptured ligament inside the stifle (knee) joint It is like the equivalent to what humans call a torn ACL. If left untreated, she has a high chance of it happening in the other leg. The surgery she needs is Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy (TPLO). It is a technique that rotates the tibia into a new position and then stabilizes it with a surgical implant.
Yikes!!! I know!!!! If I thought she could go without this I would not be doing this. She is only 7 years old and has another 7 at least in her life and needs to be able to use that back left leg normally again. I talked to a vet a UC Davis and was told the same.
If I can get 300 of my friends to put in ten bucks, its done. Well, the financial part anyway. There will also be 6+ weeks of recovery time. But after that... she can be her happy free-running lovedog self again!
Please feel free to contact me about any questions or information you might have.
