Project aim

We're raising money for leg surgery for our beloved dog Bonzo. He is only 5yrs old otherwise healthy so we believe he deserves this chance.

About the project

     Bonzo came to us as a rescue aged one. His front left leg was already an issue as he had broken it as a puppy; he then developed arthritis within this leg and recently suffered a re-break. This meant that myself and my family were faced with the discision between life-changing surgery and putting him to sleep. We chose the surgery as Bonzo is only 5 years old and is otherwise in good health with bags of love and energy. Aside from the surgery, our only other option would be to put Bonzo to sleep and this seems unfair when we know how good his quality of life could be after treatment.

     His operation is booked for 14th October 2015 at a Bristol clinic - the operation is £1800, not including follow up treatments, medication and hydrotherapy so we would really like to have a good amount raised by then. For more questions or to track his progress please feel free to add Bonzo Milner as a friend on Facebook.
