Donations Requested! Ginger in Las Vegas, NV

Update 8-6-17: Ginger has had the surgery to repair her right rear knee. She had a Cranial Cruciate Ligament complete tear, as well as a medial meniscus tear which were both repaired. She also had right medial patellar luxation that was corrected. She is back in foster care for her recovery and would like to thank everyone that has made a donation to help her get back on her feet. We are still in need of donations to cover the remaining cost of the surgery as 2/3rds of the costs remain, so please donate if you can.

Original Post 6-22-17: Please help Ginger if you can. This gentle and sweet Cavalier girl came into rescue and we noticed she sometimes had issues with her knee and that she sometimes limped and was in pain. She was having good days and some not so good, and then the not so good days increased.

A review of her prior records showed that she was diagnosed a few years back with a ruptured ACL and right patella issue and that a consultation with a specialist was suggested. Unfortunately, this wasn't acted on, and now the issue is worse.

 

We took Ginger to an orthopedic specialist who determined that the pup needs surgery both to repair her ACL tear and her knee. She is a calm and loving dog and is a good candidate for full recovery. The cost of this pup's veterinary care is estimated to be about $2800. If you could contribute to this, we'd be grateful! To donate, click on the Donate button below.
