Story

Hello, my name is Alfie.

I'm an 8 month old Cocker Spaniel living with my humans (Mum, Dad, Sister and Brother) in Derbyshire.

I LOVE the outdoors, playing with sticks and running through muddy puddles!

Sadly, I have just been diagnosed with having double hip dysplasia and the vets said because of the severity of my dysplasia, the best option for me would be full hip replacements (each hip operation will be performed at separate times.)

Unfortunately, my insurance won't cover the cost of £5,500 for the operations + consultations, hydrotherapy, medication and more x-rays.

For now, my humans are only able to provide a 'conservative' treatment plan for me with anti-inflammatory medication and hydrotherapy (that swimming bit sounds like fun though!)

My vet wants to see me again in 6-8 weeks with the decision on what the next step my humans want to take but without the support and help of others, they can't give the go ahead for my operations.

We are asking for the generosity and community support of others to help me lead a fun and happy life and my vet said that with a new set of hips, this can be achieved.

Our initial fundraising target of £6,000 will most definitely cover the operation and the x-rays which will be needed again before the operation is performed. If we're lucky enough to raise anymore then this will go towards any further vet bills and if the amazing thing happens that I get my new hips and I'm given the all clear any money left over would be given to an animal charity which we can all decide on together.

We know our target is quite a lot to raise in such a short space of time but we're determined to try and not give up hope.

Thank you to those of you who have taken the time to read my story and who have kindly donated to my future.

You can all view my progress (and my handsome face!) on my Instagram page @alfies_newhips

Bye for now,

Alfie.

    Hi, Thanks so much for stopping by to read Alfie's story. So, Alfie needs new hips. It's not what any pet owner expects to hear for such a young animal but sadly, genetics weren't on Alfie's side. We now want to help our little fella and give him the life he deserves! xxx
