Please help Frank

By Labrador Rescue

Meet little Frank, he’s only 7 months old.  He has been diagnosed with bilateral shoulder OCD (osteochondritis dissecans) which causes him to limp and suffer a lot of pain.  This is a bone disease that can occur in rapidly growing large breed dogs.  It typically occurs at 6 to 9 months of age.

In dogs that grow very quickly, the rapid cartilage growth can outstrip their own blood supply causing abnormal cartilage development resulting in lameness, pain and subsequent osteoarthritis.  In some cases, flaps of diseased cartilage become separated from the underlying bone.  This is called OCD. 

In Frank's case, he has a large piece of loose bone and cartilage.  He needs a shoulder operation to remove the fragment and check for other issues. After surgery he will need to be confined for 6 weeks in a crate. A long time for a puppy!

Thankfully we have been offered a very generous rescue discount, but the cost of the surgery will still be $3000.

Can you help us help Frank?
