Hi guys, this is Billie my much loved 6 year old Beagle girl. She has been diagnosed with Cruciate Ligament damage in both knees which need surgical repair.
She is on pain medication everyday, but is getting worse day by day. She is in desperate need to get the right leg repaired as the left leg is also unstable & getting worse & she will need the left leg to be as good as possible to help her recover after the first operation.
I don't normally ask for help of any kind, but as Billies insurance had ran out of renewal before she had a problem! due to family circumstances ( my dad having a transplant) my time & mind was on other things (life).
Billie means so much to me & my little family, she has helped me through some really testing times, she has on many occasions given me a reason to get up & out of the house when i was going through bereavement of my niece. Like i said, she has helped me through it. Now she needs my help & i feel completely helpless, even though i'm doing as much as i can! i'm running out of time to be able to save enough to help her!
Billies operations are going to cost £4000, £2000 each knee. So i'm trying to raise as much as i can to get the worse knee done first so i'll have time to save to do the other knee at a later date.
It breaks my heart to watch her just sitting outside watching other dogs running around playing while she can't. She is only 6 & has so much more life to live, but without surgery her life will be limited & i can't bare to see her being uncomfortable & depressed.
I would so appreciate any help you guys could offer Billie xx
Thank you for taking the time to read about Billie xx
