Tips for Simba’s Hips
Hi all, you may have seen Simba on TV last year for a total hip replacement to prevent us from losing him at the young age of 2 years old. We sold many of our household items including a car to help support the surgery financially as our insurance did not cover hips problems in Labradors. The surgery cost £17,000.
8 Months post-surgery Simba started limping and following trip to the vets, we discovered his new hip had snapped! We were absolutely devastated and astonished! We now find ourselves having to find another £6,500 to repair the damage :(.
Simba is the most wonderful, caring and affectionate puppy and you may have seen him around Leeds City centre some weekends joining friends for coffees and making people smile.
We are desperately finding a way to re-raise our funds to give Simba the life he deserves. Sophie & Sarah will be running the 3-mile Gung-Ho race @ Temple Newsam Leeds 13th April 10:30am - dressed as dogs!!
Thank you everyone x x x
