March 2019- Tahoe had his FHO surgery- A femoral head osteotomy, also referred to as a femoral head ostectomy, is the surgical removal of the head and neck of the femur. He is currently recovering from the procedure and we hope that this will bring comfort to our handsome fella.
ISN’T TAHOE DREAMY? Look at those eyes! ADOPT TAHOE- He is a gentle, giant and has been non-reactive and a pleasure since he arrive from a North Carolina shelter. He arrived from our colleagues in NC and has been an absolute angel. Tahoe needs FHO surgery, his hip needs reconstruction surgery. Tahoe was found as a stray and was hit by a car. He was admitted to the shelter. His owner appeared and was going to take him home until she figured out the extent of his injuries. He lived outside and they informed her that he would need to recover inside. She then surrendered him to the shelter so he could get the help he needs as she couldn’t provide it for him. Tahoe is also heartworm positive and recently received his heartworm treatment.. This gentle guy is in a lot of pain and needs a calm, place to crash before surgery and after to recover. Please consider applying to foster or contribute to his care today.
