my name is slayer and i have bad knees. my vet says it is only a matter of time before i am considered lame in both legs. my momma has kept a watchful eye over me since the diagnosis. my runs have turned into walks, playtime is now nap time and my dog treats have been replaced with glucosamine pills. and even with all this change in my life i still get stiff, limp and struggle getting up and walking. my momma has made an appointment for surgery on august 10th for the first knee. the next surgery will be scheduled 6-8 weeks after followed by physical (hydro) therapy for months and months. this is all very expensive and i know my mom is scared for both my health and paying the bills. and being that i am only a year and a half old, i just want to be a puppy again.
