My family’s Morkie, Penny, has two bad knees and a torn ACL. She’s in constant pain and can’t jump, use the stairs, or do her business without yelping or whining. She has luxating patellas in both hind legs (her right is a 1 out of 4 on the pain scale, her left is 3 out of 4), and she’ll need her torn ACL reconstructed. Our house is full of stairs, and until we can get her the surgery she needs, we’re carrying her to bed and making sure she doesn’t have to jump onto or down from the furniture. What most concerns us is her inability to do her business (which requires her to bend her back legs) without expressing obvious pain.
We have some credit to pay for part of her surgery, but not enough. I’m spending every cent of my savings and whatever is left of my next few paychecks after paying unavoidable bills, and my parents are unable to contribute as they are both unemployed at the moment. My sister created this gofundme account in order to (hopefully) raise enough money to cover what we can’t afford.
Penny is the sweetest, gentlest, most loving dog, and it breaks my heart to see her in pain. I feel terrible asking for help, but if there is any other way to help her sooner, I can’t think of it. Please consider donating; even just reblogging this post would be an incredible help.
I will post pictures on a regular basis, include updates on her condition, and maintain this blog from now until she is fully recovered.
