Well.....no cancer detected but Gryphon ruptured his cruciate ligament and his hip joints (both) are all out of line. The Vet feels that the condition his hips are in, an ortho brace is not going to solve the issue with the rupture and surgery is the way to go.

OKAY.....I'm tearing up now as I'm typing this cause there's no way that we have 3K kicking around to make this happen and my heart is torn.

He's still pretty sedated now from the x-rays and am hoping he'll swing back to his normal behavior tomorrow. We've been treating him for the past week with Tri-Acta, H.A. and the vet put him on the Rimadyl.

Just don't know what to make of this and where to go with it.
