Age: 13 months
Surgery Completed. She had extensive surgery due to a severe luxating patella
Meet Honey Bunny! Bunny is a 5-month-old female Yorkie who was surrendered by her owner due to having an issue with her back leg. Bunny was seen at Tufts for an orthopedic consult. X-rays and an examination confirmed a severe luxating patella. Bunny will be having extensive surgery due to the severity of her knee. We are waiting to hear when her surgery will be.
Please keep Bunny in your thoughts and consider making a donation to help cover her expensive surgery to help her walk without having to hop around on three legs. Thank you!
12/17 Bunny is now 11 months old and finally went to Tufts for her second Orthopedic consult as they wanted her to be just about done growing when they saw her again. She went on the 15th for her appointment and due to the continued severity of the leg they scheduled a CT scan for the next day. The CT scan showed that she was not born with the typical groove that a dog has on their femur, due to this Tufts is researching what can be done to fix her leg. We are waiting to hear back from orthopedics with more detals and information. Thank you for your continued support of Bunny.
1/5 Bunny's orthopedic surgeon was able to find an implant small enough that should work on being able to fix her knee.
3/24 Bunny had surgery on March 22nd to fix her knee. Her surgeon was pleased with how the surgery went. She is on strict crate rest for the next 8 weeks. She will be going back to Tufts for x-rays at the end of April and then again at the end of May.
Thank you for your donations Bunny’s surgery has been paid in full. We could not have done it without you!
4/29 Bunny had her first set of x-rays today at Tufts. Her surgeon was very pleased with the x -rays stating the implant was stabilized and her bone was 90 percent healed. She now needs to start using the leg more and will be doing some exercises to help.
