Koda is my 3 year old Rottie who I have had him since he was 6 weeks old. My wife and i just got married a few short months ago and just recently we received a diagnoses that our dog Koda has a degenerative disk in his neck. If he does not get the surgery within in the next two weeks he will be paralyzed and have to be put down. I dont know about you but I am not ready to put down my dog that has many more years left in him.
The surgery will cost anywhere from $4,000 - $5,000 which is way more than we can even think to afford. We are already going through hundreds of dollars in vet bills along with adding more prescriptions every week just to keep him pain free. Over the past week, he has started to lose control of his back legs which is, obviously, creating many issues with him getting up and down and going outside to relieve himself. Koda is at the point at which almost any way he moves, he is yelping and screaming in pain.
The Veterinarian told us that the surgery is very promising and when it is performed on large dogs they bounce back with in a few days. Anything towards this cause would be a HUGE help and a blessing to Koda and my family.
