Maxwell ”Max” was unwanted and hobbled aimlessly in DeSoto County, Fl. A DeSoto County animal control officer found Max and brought him to the shelter. No one even came to claim Max! Poor Max sat at the shelter in pain! When his time was up at the shelter, Paws Rescue Group saved him. Today, February 9, 2018, Max visited Paws’ vet and it was discovered that Max has a dislocated hip. Max is in terrible pain and discomfort! He hops and hobbles on three legs and tries desperately to hold his injured leg up.
**Max will require a femoral head ostectomy (FHO)-a surgical procedure that removes the head and neck from the femur. FHO surgery is performed to alleviate pain. It is a salvage procedure, reserved for condition where pain can not be alleviated in any other way. It is common in veterinary surgery.
Our vet, Dr. Parra of ParkView Animal Hospital, 3720 54th Ave. N, Saint Petersburg, Fl 33714 will perform the surgery. Dr Parra is extremely rescue friendly however Max’s surgery will still cost $1500! Please help Max to be pain free so one day he can find a forever home of his own!
Max is neutered, utd on shots, microchipped, heartworm negative and current with her monthly heartworm/flea/tick meds.
