‘Stella’ is not even one year old yet and about as cute as they come. The thing that isn’t cute is when a clumsy puppy severely hurts itself.

Mario and Carmela adopted their mini fox terrier last year from Little River. She is adorable and very affectionate, but as we said earlier a little ungainly at the moment which led to her accident. ‘Stella’ was on a table and fell hard onto her right leg and was lame and sore immediately. After getting the tiny dog to the vets for x-rays it was discovered she had badly damaged the right hip, and it would need surgery to alleviate her pain. ‘Stella’s’ owners knew that they were unable to afford the surgery to help her and were directed to PMC for help in managing the case and the financial burden.

“We are so thankful to Pet Medical Crisis for all of their help, we can’t thank them enough!” Carmela told us after the surgery.

Thanks to the great work from the team @peninsulavetcare and the doctor in charge, Dr. Kate, ‘Stella’ the awkward puppy is back at home, sore but recovering well. PMC is sure this little lady will be back in full swing in no time.

Our 504th case is 6mo Kelpie Tank D’Cruza. PMC assisted with surgery for Tank’s brother Mate 4 weeks ago (same bilateral femoral head osteotomy surgery) and while we are a 1-off crisis fund the case was approved for extenuating circumstances.

His Mum Tania writes:

“Tank is my dog. He is Mate’s sibling. Both have presented with the same genetic disorder within a short space of time unexpectedly. I adopted these 2 from a farmer who was going to drown them as they were not able to be used as working dogs. I want to give them both the best life possible as I understand rejection and abandonment and they deserve love. Tank is my pillow buddy and the biggest smooch out and gives me continous love. Our local vet wanted to put him to sleep however I can not do this to a 6 month old with lots of life and love ahead of him. Please help my baby. I have scrapped together $3000 on a pension whilst still paying Mates rehab following the same bill for him.”

Tank hear’s everything, especially “dinner time”

Mate and Tank were rescued by Tania – both destined to be drowned by a farmer who didn’t want them. Tania adopted them both and as they reached 5 months their hip malformations were identified.
