Pet of the Week- Brody

brody

Did someone say goofy puppy?  Why yes, that’s me for sure!  I am a sweet and playful boy with lots of energy, curiosity and love to share.  Do you know anything about these things they call “leashes”?  I am trying hard to teach the humans around here to walk in the direction I want to go.  Want to take classes together?  Like going for walks in the woods or playing in the water?  Maybe we could help each other out, life is always much better when you have a friend by your side!

Save Bunnie’s Leg!

bunnies leg

 

To help save Buddie’s leg, donate here: http://www.loveanimals.org/caaa-save-bunnies-leg.html

 

Bunnie was rescued from a high-kill shelter in the area of Acworth, GA by Cape Ann Animal Aid. After receiving a clean bill of health during her routine vet exam, Bunnie was spayed and ready for adoption…but Bunnie began walking with an occasional limp, favoring her right front leg.

X-rays revealed that Bunnie had a growth plate fracture. The fracture was old and likely occurred prior to her rescue. Bunnie had begun exhibiting symptoms of pain once her leg bones grew past a certain point. That’s because the fracture stopped bone growth of Bunnie’s radius, preventing it from growing normally to match the other bones in her leg.
Buddie needs surgurey to lengthen the bone medically using a procedure called Distraction Osteogenisis. Distraction Osteogenisis surgery relies on the bone continuing to grow under medically forced circumstances. During surgery, an external fixator will be secured to Bunnie’s bone allowing for it to be slowly lengthened (.5-1mm per day) until the desired bone length is reached.

This procedure is very costly and they are anticipating a vet bill of approximately $5,250. This includes expenses (provided at a reduced cost by Cape Ann Veterinary Hospital) for pre-operative blood work and x-rays and post-operative pain management medication.

They are very close to their goal, but need your help!
