Bo, a lil Dachshund needs back surgery. He’s 1 year old and was found as a stray. He slipped a disc and his only hope of walking again is surgery. This is a common problem in purebred dachshunds. He is continent now and can wag his tail so we feel his outlook is pretty good! There is a chance though that he is too far gone for surgery in which case he will be a wheelchair dachshund. His surgery will cost $1800 including rehab and x-rays.
Sparrow is a special case. She is a pup with a serious problem. She has been defacating and urinating out of the same hole. She needs pain meds every 6 hours or so.
She is in so much pain right now and we need an experienced surgical vet that can help this little Sparrow sing again! Sparrow’s surgery will cost about $800-1000.
Thanks to Dr. Vasanjee at Heart of Texas Veterinary Specialty Center in Round Rock for offering to help us again!
We can’t do this without you though, let’s get these guys back in proper condition!
