Four month old Petunia not only suffered substantial trauma to her left eye (which may even have to be removed) she is already a candidate for FHO surgery at this tender age.
FHO, is the surgical removal of the head and neck of the femur. In simpler terms, it is the removal of the “ball” part of the ball-and-socket that makes up the hip joint. This way, the bones of the joint are no longer in contact, which eliminates the pain that is caused by the abnormal contact of the bones in a dog with hip dysplasia or severe osteoarthritis. This procedure is usually used as a last resort or salvage procedure in dogs with severe hip dysplasia that are not candidates for a total hip replacement.
We are waiting to hear back from her ophthalmologist, regarding her left eye that appears to have had some sort of blunt force injury which caused a blood clot under the eye, and due to this, her vision in her left eye will likely not return. We need to ensure after her 3 week eye meds that there are no changes and that her eye is comfortable to be left as is...hopefully she does not require surgery for this as well!
She is literally just a baby and already she has been through so much! Please help this little pug by donating towards her suregry and care today.
