Honey is 2 years old, with her birthday in December. She is a beautiful, 40 pound female golden retriever mix who came to us as an owner surrender as the family was no longer able to care for her needs. She developed a rare inflammatory condition that caused significant swelling of the muscles of the eyes. This is now under control with medicine.
Honey saw a vet in September 2022 who said her right hip was completely dislocated. The vet suggested an FHO where the femoral head or ball of the joint is cut off. We have had them done on other dogs previously and all the dogs have done very well after this surgery.
We had to wait sometime before Honey could have her surgery as she needed to be off Predinisone for her eyes. It gave us a little time to raise the money for her surgery, but we are still collecting donations as you can see here. Now Honey is finally ready and we hope this is the final step before she is ready for adoption. This procedure will help alleviate pain when walking as she suffers from significant hip dysplasia. Honey has been living with her foster family for the past year while her medical concerns have been addressed. She has made great strides and hopefully has this hurdle to accomplish before finding her forever family.
None of these issues has slowed her down as she loves to run and play with other active dogs and is also quite the cuddle bug. A bonus! Honey also gets along well with cats.
We appreciate your donations to help us care for Honey's medical needs. Honey had her FPO surger on July 17th. We thank you to all who have donated so far towards this expensive surgery. We'll list your name here on this page as her sponsor for those who can continue to help us, thank you! We'll keep you posted on her recovery progress.
