Moose Dog :-( aka Maximus

So, some of you know that my moose dog hurt his leg last summer. We had it checked out, only to be told there was nothing we could do for him. Well, he reinjured it on Sunday afternoon and I took him to see the vet today. Turns out, and this is a new vet, that he has an ACL tear. Basically it's only repaireable with surgery, quite exspensive surgery. So, we have decided we will go ahead and get it done, however, due to finances, we need to wait until September. I'm asking everyone in internet land to pray for my moose dog, and that he will hold out until September. We did have some good news, his diet is working. Big boy lost 8lbs!!!! Also, because of the type of injury, it can wait to be fixed for a little while. In the meantime, we will be restricting his activity and feeding him anti inflamatory drugs :-) So that is the story as of now. I'm pretty bummed, but I'm also glad to finally know what is wrong with him and that it can be fixed. I hope to have my boy back to his old self by next year. God Bless!
