On this #GivingTuesday, Ayden needs you more than ever. Just when Ayden was enjoying things in his new home, he found himself back at Pets Alive. A young, one-year-old Ayden came to Pets Alive on a transport from South Carolina when he was just a puppy. The friendly pup quickly captured the eyes of a visitor and got adopted earlier this year.
Sadly, his mom is no longer able to care for him and he’s now back at Pets Alive. To make matters worse, we discovered he has patellar luxation in not one, but both knees. This condition occurs when the dog’s kneecap becomes dislocated from its normal position in the groove of the thigh bone. If the condition is not corrected, it could eventually cause lameness.
We want Ayden to have the best life possible and therefore, we have scheduled the duel-knee surgery for December 6 to correct this condition. Ayden will then require crate rest for a period of time until his knees heal. Even with a veterinarian discount, it will cost us about $2,000 for the surgery.
We know you too want the best for Ayden. Will you make a donation to help Ayden – and all the other animals at Pets Alive – on this #GivingTuesday?
Thank you for all you do for the animals.
