A vet's explanation

Daisy was injured and it wasn't taken care of correctly or at all when it happened. This is what the vet described as her needs. These procedures are very expensive and the family needs your help to pay for it all. Daisy will be going to the University of Tennessee in Knoxville to the vet school for help.

Has very severe orthopedic issues.

-Angular deformities of left elbow and carpus. Angular deformity and hyperextension of right carpus.We sedated him and took 2 x-rays views of each front leg.

-Right leg has an old malunion frac.-this has healed crooked and is destroying the elbow on the right side.

-Left leg is not as bad--some sort of surgery was done on the medial carpus-probably due to ligament damage from a HBC injury. This along with the extra weight bearing (due to opposite leg injury) is causing the carpus to overextend.

-Only place that could deal with theses issues is UT. Left leg (old fracture/elbow problem) is most pressing problem.

I'm so sorry to hear about your Daisy. Did you just adopt her and found her in this condition?

Very sad. We will help!

I am Daisy's foster mom. My name is Marcie. We took Daisy into our home to foster when we learned that she was scheduled to be PTS. We couldn't let that happen to her. She's such a sweet girl! We didn't know how bad her legs were until we picked her up from her previous owners' home. Daisy is up for adoption; but, she will stay with us until her surgeries are complete and she is 100%! If all goes well, Daisy should be ready for a forever home in Spring 2009. Thank you all for the comments! We really do appreciate all of the support!!!
