Amputation is something that no pet owner ever expects or wants to face. But it’s not the end of a pet’s happy, healthy life. In this episode, Dr. Buzby is joined by two friends from her “neighborhood” to discuss life after amputation and success stories of pets who are living the Tripawd® lifestyle.
Dr. Buzby’s first guest is Dr. Elizabeth Chosa from Courtenay Animal Hospital, who shares the story of Chloe, a 7-month-old puppy who survived an alligator attack in her backyard. See pictures of Chloe and find more of her story here.
Our second guest is Renè Agredano, the co-founder of Tripawds®, the world’s largest online support community for three-legged pets and their people. The Tripawds® community (http://tripawds.com) is the leading online resource center where guardians of amputee pets can find guidance, veterinary information, and support at no cost. In 2014 Rene and her husband Jim formed the Tripawds® Foundation, a 501c3 charitable organization that maintains the infrastructure required to host and manage the ever-growing community. The organization offers many free resources and assistance programs at http://tripawds.org, including a toll-free helpline and financial aid to help people whose dogs or cats are facing amputation.
