HELP ME GET SEEN & ADOPTED!
Baby Tara was diagnosed with Atlantoaxial (AA) luxation – a condition in which instability, or excessive movement, is present between the first two vertebrae within the neck. This spinal disorder is most commonly seen in young, small breed dogs. It can be caused by trauma or congenital factors. This instability compresses the spinal cord, leading to neurologic signs. X-rays proved a definitive diagnosis. Tara will be placed in a rigid neck splint and confined to a kennel for 8-12 weeks. After that, surgery will be considered if progress isn’t made. If surgery is necessary, the goal is to permanently stabilize the atlantoaxial joint, in order to prohibit excessive motion and relieve pressure on the spinal cord. A surgeon will use screws and bone cement to permanently attach the atlas and the axis to each other, preventing movement at this joint. This is a very delicate situation and we want whatever is best for Tara and to hopefully give her a full and happy life. Please donate to Tara’s emergency hospitalization as we have many medical cases currently and need your help.
Baby Tara is currently hospitalized. She is one of our babies that found a home was rushed into emergency in NYC. Tara presented earlier this week with neurological symptoms. She was found in listless condition, unable to move, out on the floor. She can’t eat, move her legs, or stand up. We were told that this is the second time Tara was found this way. Our local vet insisted that she was sent to a full service hospital for a neurological workup.
