Join us in helping Laszlo the Ibizan Hound get back to his happy, playful self by supporting his medical journey and recovery today and GoFundMe Launch to support Medical Bills.
Audrey Grabenstein, a devoted pet owner, is reaching out to the community for help. Her 9-month-old Ibizan Hound, Laszlo, has been diagnosed with osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) in his left shoulder joint. This condition causes chronic pain and lameness, and it is something Audrey and her family never expected to deal with, especially not with their young pup.
Laszlo is not just a pet to Audrey’s family. He is a goofy, lovable, and loyal companion who has brought them immeasurable joy since the day they brought him home. When Laszlo injured his toe last fall, Audrey and her family did everything they could to help him heal. However, even after weeks of rest and pain medication, Laszlo remained lame. It was then that they discovered the underlying issue that has been causing him pain.
The emotional toll of seeing Laszlo suffer has been heartbreaking for Audrey’s entire family. As pet owners, they know that animals cannot tell us when they are in pain or feeling unwell. It’s up to us to be their advocates and provide them with the care they need. That’s why they are reaching out to the community for help.
The financial burden of Laszlo’s medical bills has been significant for Audrey’s family. They have already spent over $2,000 on imaging and diagnostics, and surgery is estimated to cost around $4,000. Rehabilitation will cost an additional $100-$200 per weekly visit for about 8 weeks. Audrey’s family has applied for Care Credit cards, but they are still putting themselves into significant debt to help their beloved Laszlo make a full recovery.

Please share their post with your friends and family to help spread the word. Let’s come together to give Laszlo the care he deserves and help him get back to being the happy, goofy pup he is known to be.
