Stella's Surgery

Stella's Surgery

From Tracie Koehnlein

My dog Stella needs help for a surgery to repair a torn ACL and likely a slipped kneecap as well. This money will help pay for her surgery as well as post-op and recovery care.

Also if anyone wanted proof here's the bill of Stella's surgery. (I paid half at a time on two cards but the total is at the bottom). And her 6 laser therapy sessions are $45 each.

More Info

Stella is my sweet "foster failure" dog who recently injured her leg while playing frisbee in the backyard. She is a 4 year old ACD/Catahoula mix who is otherwise healthy and has a good chance of recovery. Stella loves playing, being active and going to the park to meet new people and children to get attention and perform tricks for them. I'm really looking forward to go back to us having nice long walks and enjoying games of fetch and frisbee. We appreciate any and all generosity from our friends!

Also, if anyone would like to directly donate to my paypal to avoid any fees taken off here it's trixie-k-88@hotmail.com. Thank you!

Update #4

It's been just over two weeks and Stella is healing fantastically! The people at the vet said she's healing best out of any dog they've seen get this surgery! I'm thrilled and she's got all her sutures out and is able to walk around a bit. She's actually getting a bit antsy now and wants to play, so that's a good sign. Thanks to everyone who donated for making this possible! (Also for some reason the site keeps flipping her photo upside down, if it comes out that way, sorry about that!)

Update #3

Stella had her surgery today. As far as we can tell it was a success but right now she's still very knocked out. We are working on resting now.

Update #1

Hey everyone! Thank you for everyone who has generously donated to help Stella. Yesterday we had a consult with the surgeon. We had good news and bad news. The good news is that I've now found a doctor who will perform the best type of surgery there is for this injury at a discounted price. The bad news is that it's $1000 more than expected! So if you can manage to share this with more people who can help I'd definitely appreciate it. :)
