Please show your support and help raise the needed money for Betty's issues,

Betty is a 4 year old Newfoundland that's in need of help. She was diagnosed with hip dysplasia, luxating patellas, cow hocked all which is in her both back legs..She still loves life and her sister Izzy, She gets around fine but the vet told me that her life will be cut in 1/2 due to her leg issues and being a large breed dog. I do what I can for her but she is in need of monthly pain injections called adequan. Adequan does wonders for her, and with it she has more of a chance to life longer. Once she receives the injections it's like she doesn't feel the pain. She jumps and runs just like she was a puppy again. The vet told me the Adequan last for 30 days. I just want the best for Betty. I own my home and have many other bills but she always comes first. If I need to skip on paying the DP&L bill just so she get the injections I do. I have worked in the animal business for over 10 years and love all my pets but times got hard when my boyfriend lost his job. I now have a $340.10 DP&L bill & thats not the only bill. I will eat rice and bread before she is ever in pain.

 

what is cow hocked??

 Cow-hocked is the condition in an animal where the back leg joints of the animal are set incorrectly. This term is used to describe when the back 'knee' on an animal is set inward, resulting in a splayed look in the back legs. This can result in the uneven wearing of hooves, which can end up in permanent lameness, and can prove to be a very serious condition

 

what is hip dysplasia??

Hip dysplasia is an abnormal formation of the hip socket that, in its more severe form, can eventually cause crippling lameness and painful arthritis of the joints. It is a genetic (polygenic) trait. It can be found in many animals and occasionally in humans, but is most commonly associated with dogs, and is common in many dog breeds, particularly the larger breeds.

what is luxating patellas???

Luxating patella (or trick kneesubluxation of patella, or floating patella) is a condition in which the patella, or kneecap, dislocates or moves out of its normal location.

 

please any help is appreciated! <3
