A Pain Free World for Maxine

A Pain Free World for Maxine

From Brandy Bowlen

Some may know Maxine's story. On Tuesday, April 6th, Maxi had a TPLO procedure on the right leg for debilitating lameness in spite of activity restrictions and medications. She now needs the same procedure on the left.

Update #1

Today is Monday, April 12th. Maxi is moving a little easier today, but it's so hard. She is tired of the kennel and tired of the sling. She especially irritated by the cone of shame. One more week for the sling and the cone though! Great news... we ordered a friendlier cone and it should be arriving Tuesday. Let's see if that helps! Vet follow up #1 happening next week. Fingers crossed!

More Info

At 10 days old, we saw this batch of precious puppies on Facebook. There was a plea from a veterinary office... anyone with experience bottle feeding puppies HELP!  We stepped up and took two, and Maxi was one of them. This was over 6 years ago, and this girl has been human since then. She has also endured terrible pain. We lost her brother to the same condition, but couldn't find the funds or assistance to help him.  We won't lose this girl!!  She loves to play in the water hose, to play fetch full speed, and to lay outside in the sunshine.  She can do none of these right now as she is recovering from a surgery for the equivalent of an ACL rupture and tear in humans. She has this condition in BOTH back legs and has been almost completely immobile.  Our dream is to see our girl on the move again!  Doctors say this is possible, but only with this surgery.  Surgery number 1 was $5,500.  We now only have 6 weeks to fund surgery number 2.  We would be forever grateful for even $1 towards fixing our baby.

Forever in debt to you,

Brandy and Larissa
