Hypertrophic osteodystrophy surgery for a Beagle!!

Unfortunately this project was not successful.

We are desperately looking for some kind donations to help pay towards the cost of the surgery for my 18 month male Beagle Louis

Please help support this cause, which will help to pay for the much needed surgery for Louis, my 18 month Beagle. 

When my beagle Louis was 4 months old he was diagnosed with HYPERTROPHIC OSTEODYSTROPHY (HOD). Now he is 18 months old and one of the legs seems to be way better but then other leg. It is really sad as he is such a happy and playful dog, but we have to be really careful with long walks and him playing around. Up until now he has not appeared to be in much pain, though over the past 5 - 6 weeks he has not been putting much pressure on the leg and having checked with 4 different vets, they confirmed that he will need to have surgery soon. 

Because Louis was born and shipped over from South Korea with me, he does not have insurance. The operation is also not covered by insurance and is estimated to cost between £1200 - £1400 including X-Rays and pre and post operation care.  This is not something that me or my partner can afford to cover, so we are desperately looking for ways to get Louis the much needed operation that he needs to live a longer and healthier life. 

It's just awful.

As you can see his right leg is slightly bent compared to his left leg.




Any donation is greatly appreciated.
