Maeleigh is doing wonderful. She is full weight bearing on her leg. Her activity is still restricted to the leash walking , which she feels is completly unnessasary :o) We are expecting a full recovery for her, at her 8 week visit.

2/20/2009--
Maeleigh is two years old , she was pulled as a pup from a high kill shelter & placed. Maeleigh was loved very much but due to her moms job change ..came back into rescue. I loved her as a pup when I met her & took her into my home. We noticed a limp soon after we got her ... most of the time slight ..but worsned w/ activity...

We took her in for check up & put her on Metacam to see if that would help.. it did at first but we opted to do xrays at her 6 week check up...

We found 2 problems

1. Maeleigh has a cruciate ligament rupture. She needs needs TPLO surgery. She is very athletic & strong. She loves to play & run and can't do that right now due to pain

TPLO surgery has excellent results http://vetsurgerycentral.com/tplo.htm

2. Maeleigh was also dignosed w/ Hip Dysplasia http://www.petsurgery.com/caninehipdysplasia.htm
We mangage her weight & giver her suppliments to slow down the progress. Maeleigh has EXCELLENT muscle tone ..so this helps her as well.

She may require surgery for this as well in the future, which is why it is very important to repair her leg correctly so she has full use & no limp & can continue to exercise.

The cost of the TPLO surgery ranges between $2200 & $2800 dollars. The rescue cannot afford this right now. since it isn't life threathing it will have to be postponed until funds can be raised. She is being maintained on pain meds. Please donate so we can get her back on the road to being a young, healthy, pain free, girl .
