Olive- Adopted

Newfoundland Dog

An adotable dog in Zelienople, PA

  • Adult
  • Extra Large
  • Female

Olive is 5 years old. She came to us because her owner had lost his job and could no longer afford to keep her. Approximately two years ago, she had ruptured both back ACL's and the owner never had them repaired. When we took her in we had her evaluated at the vets. Xrays showed that her hips are great but there is alot of arthritis in her back knees which causes her to walk stiff legged in the back end. The vet felt that it was too late to do surgery on the knees because of all of the arthritis so we agreed to PRP injections around the knees. This stands for platelet rich plasma. These injections will help to promote new cell growth. We had this done about two weeks ago and have seen some improvement. Olive is a wonderful girl and loves everyone. She will need a home where there are minimal to no stairs. She does not like slippery surfaces so we have rug runners going to the back door from a carrpeted area. We have her on glucosamine and fish oil as well. If you feel you are the special home who could care for Olive please contact Noreen at 412-841-2590 or [email protected]
