Maybe im just being too optimistic but she is doing SO much better (day 2 of Rimadyl)
If her standing didn't look lop-sided like a lean and her legs didn't sometimes cross over then id be second guessing the surgery.

she wants to play and run she's full of energy again, however i know she shouldn't be running or playing.
Im kind of wondering if I stop the Rimadyl will she continue to try to walk/stand/play, or will she be once again reduced to a screaming mass of puppy..


Ugh it's so hard because she looks like she's improving but i know, in the long run she isn't.

She looks better because of the medicine. The medicine is working. DO NOT take her off the meds. She'll go right back to being in pain.

Ill keep her on her meds. don't worry.

Since the rimadyl is an anti inflammatory im just guessing it's keeping the internal swelling down enough for her to try and use it. also that means less pain with less swelling.

glad she is not in pain and it is because of the meds, ligaments hardly ever heal well on their own and you need to do the surgery so she does not have a life time of pain. dont let how she is acting now change your mind on getting her fixed up please.

Sooo i dont have much to donate, but i did make a page on facebook for the cause... its called Help for Trillion and includes the web page where donations can be made. I'll PM you all the details so u can take it over and change all the passwords and what not. I also paid to have it advertised on the right side of the page [where all those "Like this Page" ads are]. I know its not much but i hope everything works out.

I also posted the donation page on mine and a bunch of husky lover/dog lover/pets in need pages as well.

Okay now we are only on day two of raising funds for Trillion i know, but im really starting to worry what if we don't get to that point.
If we don't raise enough money?
Is there like a set- time limit she should go without surgery i was doing some research and i read two weeks max before it starts to try to heal on it's own and becomes more painfull,

If we can't raise the money in time of two weeks what would be better for her, just keep trying to raise or or amputation? is that going above and beyond what's needed? could she live a normal life on three legs? would it be better to put her to sleep?
That is something i REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY don't even want to think about. but im thinking in case- this turns into something we can't handle, what would be my next form of action?

I would never op for putting her to sleep and shame on your vet if thats what they suggest. Are you sure there is no where else for you to go? Do you have any grandparents you could ask? Friends? Explain the situation and people will probably help. \

You are doing great with only 2 days (not even 24 hours) of chip in. You are half way to the down payment. Perhaps you could try the vet and you have 700? Otherwise you are worried you will have to put her down.

What happened with the rescue?

my vet did not suggest it, I was just thinking if worse-came to worse what what I do, what our options could be.
Iv asked family, we have around 300 collected from family, trying to get some more. Iv asked friends but the lot of them can't because they're going to warped tour in the summer and need their money Neutral
The rescue isn't really disclosing anything about their addition to her payment until the vet give the Ok about fixing her at the same time, and honestly by his reaction i don't think he's going to go for it, he was saying it's a lot for a puppy to endure, and for the rescue to donate without her being fixed is agents policy. and they have worked out operation first fixing later with other people but of course they did not follow through Neutral

it only takes one bad apple to ruin the bunch

I would just do the spay. She is an otherwise healthy puppy ,and unlike a lot of puppies she is a large one. I would do it. If it means the surgery is paid for, I would.

I may catch some scrutiny for that, but I would run the risk if it meant I could keep my dog alive and save her leg.

Just my opinion

You've got $700 in your chipin and $300 from family, that puts you at the $1000. You only need to get to $400 to get the down payment necessary to start the surgery, right? The rest can go on a payment plan. I'd look to see if you can get a credit card and just get to that $1400 asap. I'm sure you will get more with your chipin and that will help with the payments and paying off the credit card. The sooner you get her into surgery, the better.

Also, really talk to your vet about whether the spay is a no-go, because obviously a rescue helping out would be the best.

How about getting a loan? Or asking a family member to get one out for you? Or a friend? Or somebody?!

Can the rescue at least step in and ask for rescue rates for Trillion's surgery?

OR

If you're in Running Springs, CA - then you're about an hour from San Bernardino.

http://lomalindaanimalhospital.net/

Speak with them and ask how much for the surgery – fax them over xrays if you need to or the vet records you have. They just did a large tumor removal on a husky for us – everything included for $400. They’re the vet that Husky Camp rescue uses. Call them TODAY and get a quote.
