The BC SPCA’s Victoria branch is fundraising for a one-and-a-half-year-old dog who has a broken leg and dental disease.
The dog, called Cover Girl, has had surgery for a “severely broken leg.” She also has her baby teeth and has developed dental disease. The SPCA said she will need X-rays and another surgery to ensure she can eat without pain.
According to the SPCA, Cover Girl “suffered in agony for weeks before she came into SPCA.”
“Cover Girl had calcification around her bones and needed emergent and expensive surgery to repair this injury,” BC SPCA Victoria branch manager Annie Prittie-Bell said in a statement. “A gentle and human-focused girl, Cover Girl loves to be held and carried around like a baby and wants nothing more than a person who understands her fragility and her gentle nature.”
The dog’s medical costs are estimated to be $7,733. Cover Girl will also need at least two months to fully recover and will be closely monitored in a foster home to make sure she does not place any weight on her leg until it fully heals.
If you can help Cover Girl and other animals in need at the Victoria SPCA, please visit spca.bc.ca/medicalemergency or visit the branch at 3150 Napier Lane, Victoria, 250.338.7722
