Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Tear and Foreign Body Removal

Poor Isabelle the Cane Corso has 2 major issues within 2 years.

Vet Bill: $21,403

Background

Isabelle was just a young adult when, just a few months into her policy, she tore her Anterior Cruciate Ligament, which required corrective orthopedic surgery. Then, just when it seemed that her visits to the veterinarian were ending, she swallowed a foreign object. Her situation developed into a life-threatening emergency requiring surgery.

After her initial surgery to remove the foreign body she developed a severe infection at the suture site and had serosanginous discharge. To make matters worse she developed gastroenteritis as well. Treatment for the complications from her surgery amounted to more than the surgery itself!

Then, unexpectedly, poor Isabelle was diagnosed with a Mast Cell Tumor. A CT scan and chemotherapy was necessary.
