The News is Not Good

Daisy has bilateral torn ACL's. Which means she will require surgery to both legs over the course of 3-4 months. I don't know what we're going to do. There are 3 surgical options (actually only 2 viable options) They want to do surgery as soon as possible (one leg at a time).

I guess a big family conference is in order.

Oh no! This is not a good news... oh man... I don't know what else to say to comfort you... :(

Ahhh! That is so sad. I have heard of people doing both legs at the same time. I wonder if those people have no other children.

I am so sorry, I know animals are a part of the family.

My prayers are with you and your family!

Poor Daisy. As I already mentioned our pup had to have the same operation. The operation went smooth and he recovered very quickly, but it was very expensive surgery.

It's a very tough decision. Best of luck.

That's tough. When our black lab was having hip problems and arthritis issues, the docs recommended surgery that would've been around $5000. My mom is a single mom, who had no money for stuff like that, so we couldn't afford to do it. Cheska (the dog) lived uncomfortably for a few more years but I always wondered if having the surgery would've been worth it because she was already old. I hope all works out.
