GGBR has recently authorized ACL surgery for Buddy, with the estimate coming in close to $4000.
Some months ago, Buddy (aka Henry) was approved by GGBR for surgery on a torn cruciate ligament in one of his rear legs. However, the surgeon at that time felt that the tear was not severe enough to warrant invasive surgery. Buddy's leg was again evaluated by the orthopedic veterinarian and it was clear that surgery is now necessary. The surgery was scheduled but when the pre-op blood draw was done on 11/12/20, it was found that Buddy has a tumor on his thyroid. He then had surgery to remove the potentially life threatening tumor. Once he has recovered from that surgery, he will receive surgery for the repair of his leg ligament.
Buddy, who the vet says is approximately 7 years old is a very sweet black lab/basset mix. He loves people, is not very interested in most dogs especially big dogs, good with cats, barks a lot, is very loving and basically a good dog. He would be very happy being adopted by someone who would give him the constant attention he craves.
