Bella ended up at San Francisco Animal Control after she was hit by a car and her left leg was fractured, and her owners could not afford her treatment. Initially our orthopedic surgeon suggested keeping her on limited exercise to give the bone time to heal. Though Bella was able to use her injured leg a good bit of the time, she had to be on daily pain medication.
Since a lifetime of daily pain meds is not the life we want for such a young dog, we decided the best thing for her long-term quality of life was to remove the source of the pain. So Bella is now officially a TRIPOD! She has adjusted well to tripod life, and we expect her to have a nice, long, happy, and most importantly, PAIN-FREE life.
Bella’s surgery and aftercare cost $2,500. We, and Bella, appreciate any donations to help cover these vet bills. Thank you for your generosity!
