This week’s claim features a sweet Beagle named Buttercup whose owner was kind enough to post a photo of her on our Facebook page. Buttercup has been dealing with complications of premature closure of her right distal ulnar growth plate. Essentially what this means is that of the bones in her front right leg, one was growing faster than the other, causing pain and lameness.
Buttercup has made various veterinary visits for diagnostics, surgery, and hospitalization. She is currently undergoing stem cell therapy as well. Buttercup’s veterinary bills have totaled over $8,000 for this condition so far. Get well soon sweet girl!
