Arrival Story:
Lila was a puppy we found in a pet store in Georgia, We layed eyes on her a fell in love. She traveled home with us to Florida and we soon found out Lila had some horrible medical conditions. Lila was diagonoised with being born with no Dens in her neck that hold the vertabra in the spine together, we noticed when she would move or go out she would scream and we did not know why. Turns out her spinal cord was being pinched everytime she moved wrong causing pain,she was taken to the University of Florida Vet hospital where she was given only a 25% chance of surviving the surgery , we cried and cried but after several days of excruating waiting she survived and came home in a full body cast for 6 weeks, She had an incision from her chin to her chest. She was in so mauch pain she had a patch of narcotics which was rleased through her skin to help, She screamed for days in her haze of drugs. But my girl made it and after many cast changes she did well. But Lila was not done, she ended up having to have both her knees operated on becasue her knee cap s would slip out of place. She did one at a time with rehab in between and by the time she was 1 1/2 the poor dog was looking like frankenstein. She is now 3 and doing wonderful, no collar and leaches for her due to the pins and screws in her neck but we adore her so.
