Can you help Bear be a puppy again?
This is Bear, he's a beautiful 10 month old German Shepherd puppy who has recently been diagnosed with bilateral hip dysplasia. In his current condition, he is unable to stand from laying down without crying or walk without limping. As such, Bear is relying on 4 x strong painkillers daily - without which he is in a lot of discomfort.
Poor Bear is currently unable to be a typical puppy. He cannot play with his four legged friends & exercise properly (although he desperately wants to) - for fear of causing further damage to his hips.
Due to the severity of his dysplasia, which is evident in BOTH hips, Bear will require a total hip replacement in order to be 100% pain free & get his puppyhood back.
The price for one hip operation ranges from £7500-£10,000, therefore we are hoping to raise £3500 in total to add to our current savings to afford the best treatment possible for our boy.
Despite having premium pet insurance, his cover will only contribute a fraction of the money needed for him to have this vital surgery.
The hip replacements will be performed as soon he is fully developed (in a few months time) - so all we can do until then is make preparations and keep him comfortable with drugs.
ANY donation you could make towards Bear's hip replacement would be SO appreciated. It breaks our hearts to see him like this, you can see his frustration when he can't do the things he wants to do i.e. playing and running freely. We are desperate to fix his hips for him so he can get back to the fun loving, care-free, energetic puppy he was a few months ago & deserves to be!
Thank you so much.
Bear’s family ❤️
