The week of July 8th, we received a call about an owner surrender puppy at a local shelter. As we all know, the shelter is no place for a baby, so we went and picked up sweet Chinook. We noticed right away she had a pronounced limp, and rushed her to our veterinary partners at Happy Tails Veterinary Care in Bethlehem. Upon her wellness exam, it was discovered that Chinook has a fractured hip. With that diagnosis, we rushed her to our orthopedist, Dr. Corse at Northlake Veterinary Surgery, where she is scheduled to have a FHO (Femoral Head Osteotomy) surgery tomorrow morning, 7/18/19. This is the best option for little Chinook, and the chances are high that she will heal with close to normal mobility for her hip.
All donations on this site are tax deductible. Please send your well wishes to Chinook for her surgery tomorrow morning, and to Dr. Corse, that the surgery is issue free. We can't wait to get her on the road to recovery, and once she's healed, placed in her forever home!
