Our Candy girl has a damaged front leg from her former home. We assume she was abused by some of her behaviors when we first adopted her, poor thing 🙁 . Been with us for over 3 years now and is doing great! But her front damaged leg causes her to hop on her good front leg. Well after many years of hopping, she is getting pretty arthritic and is hurting more and more and is now needing some assistance to walk. She is fine around the house and we pick her up off the couch and the bed so she does not jump. We also have pet stairs for her and our other little senior dogs and cats with disabilities.
We have her on lots of glucosamine as well as other joint type suppliments. But have decided to save up for a front wheel cart. She loves to go for walkies but can only handle a going past a few houses now before she gets sore and tired. She has been trying to walk on her shorter damaged leg too instead of hopping like a bunny. The bad leg has no real strength and the elbow joint is all bundled up into a mess with a pin that is basically floating under her muscle and starting push against her muscle and skin. OUCH! For sure! Vet’s are watching it and will decide if she needs the pin to be removed.
We need to raise $500 for a custom cart for Candy. So we are asking all our fans if you can to check out our ETSY sites and see if there is anything you would like to purchase?! We are trying to sell as many of our items to raise money for Candy’s cart! If your into sewing, we have great sewing patterns of my handbag designs on my Mackerilla ETSY page. Or if your a pet fan, have some leashes, t shirts and other items on our Gimpy Pets ETSY page.
Please help if you can! You can also donate to Gimpy Pets too if you would like to help!
Here are our items and shops! 🙂
