The family and friends of Cooper are uniting to raise money to help with his battle to repair a "Luxating Patella".Please show your support!

This is the "Vet Fund for Cooper". The family and friends of Cooper are uniting to raise money for a procedure to correct a "Luxating Patella". This condition affects his hind knee. It is a very painful condition that usually affects small dogs, but larger dogs are not immune. I rescued Cooper from an irresponsible breeder in 2006. He was born Christmas day 2005. From as young as 12 weeks, we knew Cooper was going to have arthritis in the front shoulder. He had many problems due to overbreeding. The most painful is the knee. He has progressively gotten worst since last year. We were told to wait until he was in obvious pain and stopped eating because this procedure is quite extensive and he will have to be "quiet" for 16 weeks. I, myself, have had to endure many many surgeries and have been in and out of my job on medical leave quite frequently and cannot afford this procedure on my own. Due to my medical situation, my husband and I filed Chapter 11 in 2008. The payments made to the court do not allow anything left over for animal care. We have kept up his vet appointments and maintained immunizations, but this is next to impossible. Cooper is family. He has watched and waited by my side while I have undergone so many of my own procedures. It breaks my heart that I cannot do this for him.
