Lanzer needs your help to walk without pain

November 25, 2019

The BC SPCA’s East Kootenay Branch is seeking your help with medical costs for a dog called Lanzer, who needs specialized surgery to repair the torn cruciate ligament in his right knee.

“Lanzer loves adventures but he can hardly walk without limping and every step is agony for him,” says SPCA East Kootenay Branch manager Christy King.

Lanzer the dog

Lanzer had blood work and X-rays to confirm the injury and make sure he was a good candidate for surgery. He will need medication to control the pain and food that supports healthy mobility to regain his ability to walk normally. This eight-year-old dog will spend at least three months recovering in SPCA care before being ready to go up for adoption. His total cost of care is expected to reach $3,940.

“Lanzer might just be the perfect dog,” says King. “This giant mastiff cross is goofy, affectionate, social, loves other dogs and enjoys snuggling up for cuddles.”

If you can help Lanzer and other animals in need at the East Kootenay SPCA, please visit or visit the branch at 3339 Hwy 3 & 95, Cranbrook, 250-426-6751.
