Horus's Orthopedic Surgery - GOAL REACHED!

OUR GOAL

$1250

2/15 update: GOAL REACHED!

This bright-eyed beauty is no stranger to APA!. Horus came to us in the fall of 2017 and after spending two and a half years with his previous adopter, Horus was unfortunately returned to us last summer.

His previous owner said that Horus is “amazing and super social.” He just doesn’t enjoy meeting strangers without a proper introduction. Horus just takes his job as a guard dog a little too seriously.

Our favorite guard dog has torn his cranial cruciate ligament, also known as a dog ACL. This prevents him from putting weight on his right hind leg, which is essential for puppy play time! Our vets are planning to perform a tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO), which will be a long-term solution ensuring years of proper play time for Horus. The surgery will allow Horus to use leg and his stability will no longer depend on his knee.

Will you chip in and support innovation like this TPLO surgery for pets in need?

*At times a chip in fund will raise more than a pet needs. When this happens, rest assured that excess gifts will be used to help another pet in need of your assistance! Thank you for helping us help pets!
