Kona is a 3-year-old Presa Canario that was adopted in March 2017. She was rescued after being found tied up with a rope hanging from the top of a garage by her forelimbs. The family that adopted her, the O’Conner’s, include dad, mom, and a young toddler. Mr. O’Conner has been diagnosed with severe depression, stress, generalized anxiety, and PTSD related to his previous military service. Kona is Mr. O’Conner’s trained psychiatric support animal and her presence has proven to help Mr. O’Conner with his ability to function. The family was limited in their financial resources to help treat Kona’s hind limb injuries that occurred in August 2017 after Kona fell while jumping in the car. Kona presented to Veterinary Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Group (VOSM) and was diagnosed with bilateral Cranial Cruciate Ligament (CCL) tears as well as a left grade 3/4 Medial Patella Luxation (MPL) and a right grade 2/4 MPL. Kona underwent a left Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy (TPLO) with locking plate and screws and a caudal pole hemimeniscectomy with Dr. Chris Leasure at VOSM in October 2017. Following a successful five-week recheck, Kona underwent a right TPLO with locking plate and screws, a caudal pole hemimeniscectomy, medial imbrication, and a lateral release with Dr. Leasure in November 2017. Both surgeries were fully funded by Project GO and we are pleased to report that Kona is healing wonderfully!
