This grant through Sponsor a Pet was put toward paying the costs of Batman’s orthopedic procedures to help him be less painful and increase his comfort and mobility. From his Petfinder profile: “Holy bad breeding, Gothamites! Batman needs YOUR help! This poor baby! Batman (Mach II, formerly known as Tanner) was purchased from a breeder and then surrendered to a local shelter by his owners at just 6 months old due to an injury: limping from a very swollen right front leg. Fortunately for him, that shelter did a complete medical evaluation, including x-rays, and determined that poor Batman (known to the shelter as Tanner) had severe bilateral elbow dysplasia, growth-plate damage, bilateral hip dysplasia, and improper development of his legs attributed to malnutrition during the most important growing phases of his life. The shelter contacted rescue and together we made arrangements to get this boy into our care. Despite all of this, Batman has the sweetest disposition and does his very best to live like a normal puppy. He plays with other dogs, and greets every person he meets with enthusiasm and then melts into their arms for petting. Batman has been evaluated by an orthopedic surgeon to give him the best life possible. An infection was discovered in one of his afflicted elbows and, after being aspirated, flushed and drained, is being treated with a very long course of antibiotics. Once his infection is all clear, he will need a CT scan and arthroscopic surgery.” Batman has been adopted.
