Marley was playing fetch outside and came up lame in his left rear leg. His parents thought he had just strained something, but then the limping didn’t improve. Marley was diagnosed with a hip luxation at SAGE Veterinary Centers Redwood City by Dr. Liza Stewart. She tried to “pop” the hip back in under anesthesia, but it wouldn’t stay and needed surgery. Marley’s dad was distraught because he didn’t have the money and his wife was 37 weeks pregnant – that means any day now!! – and was not working. Luckily, Dr. Stewart reached out to SAGE Compassion for Animals and we were able to fund the needed surgery – including having Marley neutered! Marley is recovering now with his pet parents while they await a new baby into their home!
