Achilles legs . . .

Postby Liebo11 » Wed Sep 10, 2008 7:50 pm

Aright well as some of you know already Achilles had surgery on his left acl a while back and everything is good with that leg . . . when he was having surgery the vet mentioned that he would most likely need his right knee done at some point as well . . . Well i've noticed after taking him to the park and even running in the backyard that his RIGHT leg is definitely bothering him . . . I want to get it fixed for him so he can be a normal happy running dog again but I really just don't have the money . . . I've been looking for places that will let me pay it off and I haven't had much success yet . . . Anyone know of anything I can do . . . any help would be very much appreciated

thanks,

jeremy and achilles

Hannah just had her left knee and acl done yesterday...and we'll do the TPO in November/December, most likely. Thank God for Care Credit...otherwise I'd have to get a 2nd job! :crybaby:

All in all I'll spend about $8K...
