My girl Maggie was hit by a car on the night of Friday, March 13, and, after two consults in our hometown, she was referred to a specialist in Albuquerque, NM for surgery, 4 hours away. Due to having a dislocated right hip and torn tendons in both her knee and ankle, it was decided to amputate her right rear leg. Her left ankle was also broken and required an external fixiter to be implanted in her leg to support the joint while it heals.
After today's surgery, Maggie's medical expenses have now officially reached $7,011.01 and will continue to climb at approximately $192 a day through Saturday.
Once Maggie returns home she will require additional vet visits for sedated bandage changes for 1-2 weeks, and in 8 weeks she will need surgery to remove the external fixiter.
