Arrival Story:
He started out at house where people always left him chained up in the backyard or in the garage. Our friends took Kenny from them and gave Kenny to us. Now Kenny runs freely around the house, and has his own doggie door if he needs to go outside. He is the best dog we have every had. He is smart, kind and protective of his family. I love Kenny!

I like to call him "kitty kitty" every now and again, but it is quite funny to me because I know he would like to chase a cat down and eat it.

We have recently taken Kenny and our other dog, Karma on their first camping trip. They had so much fun! I think Kenny would rather stay indoors, but still had a good time.


Shaving your dogs leg!?!

Kenny has been doing really well! He hasn't been limping on it as much as he used to. It still looks like he is recovering from the surgery. His hair on his leg is starting to grow back. It was so funny being able to see his shaved leg and his skin! I just hope he is okay. I want him to feel 100% again. He is such an awesome dog. I still have to take him to get more x-rays and I will keep ya'll updated.


Kenny's Knee

So far I have spent $3,300 on my dog's leg. Kenny started limping on his hind right leg for about two weeks, and I finally decided something must be wrong.
I took him to a vet and they said to give him this medication called Carprofen that had 75 mg and recommended rest-leash walk only-no running or jumping for 2-3 weeks, then slowly return to normal activity. They charged me a total of $92. During this office visit, I asked them if they could take x-rays of his hip and leg to see if they could find anything else that might be wrong. The vet told me not to worry and that everything should be fine and if in the 2-3 weeks if still limping to bring him back and then she would take the x-rays.
After a week, Kenny was still limping and not looking so good. I decided to get a second opinion. When I took Kenny in, they took x-rays right away. That was about $250. The vet said that she could definitely see something was wrong in his knee, but would have to get a specialist to perform the surgery that Kenny would need. They quoted me $2,300. Wow! What do you do? “Go ahead and call the specialist” I said.
We set up an appointment and dropped Kenny off. A few hours later the specialist calls to say, “Everything went great!” He also said that he was happy that we took care of it so soon and that Kenny was in pain and that he should be feeling better in no time. The only problem I had with this vet was that after I talked to the specialist the vets office called and said that the surgery went well, but that they had to change a few things because when the got into his leg, there were more problems then they thought and need to charge an additional $350.
Of course I am going to pay the money but they should have called me to let me know it was going to be more money. I would have said “yes” even if they called, but it is the principal of the matter. Then, the medicine was another $200. The vets gave him Rimadyl 100mg, Ciprofloxacin 750mg, Clavamox 375 pack, Tramadol 50mg, SynoviCre 600 mg. Lots of meds! As I am listing these I just noticed they charged me $21.36 for a collar that I didn’t need. I gave them my harness and they charge me for a collar.
I still have to take him to get the 20 staples removed, and a few more x-rays to make sure everything is healing properly. I also have to keep him in “strict confinement” for 30-60 days followed by an additional 30 days of progressive, supervised walks. I will be sure to keep everyone updated.
