This is Max, a 7-year-old Chiweenie.
Max's parents retired from the daily grind due to health reasons, but bills and life kept charging on. So, his mom went back to work to keep things afloat. It was during this tough time that Max dislocated his elbow. Ouch! His parents brought him to the vet, where they placed the elbow back in place. Unfortunately, his elbow kept dislocating. He went to the vet twice to have it put back in place, and at that time his vet recommended amputation.
According to VCA Pet Hospitals, signs your pup may have dislocated their elbow include:
Max's parents were already struggling with bills, so the added cost of this surgery was overwhelming. That's when they applied with Fur Kids Foundation for a little bit of help. And we were able to jump into action thanks to our supporters!
Max had his leg amputated, and is already bouncing around like a boss! He may only have three legs, but that doesn't stop him from being his adorable self. Once he's healed he'll feel even better because he will no longer have that pesky elbow dislocating all the time.
No matter what is happening with your fur kid, at any stage of life, Fur Kids Foundation encourages you to call your veterinarian sooner rather than later.
