New hip joints for my dog Vitez

Unfortunately the project hasn't met our fundraising goal.
project summarySteffi's dog Vitez has bilateral hip dysplasia, which causes him enormous pain. He urgently needs two new hip joints. Help to make the operation possible so that he can soon be a normal dog again!


Hello my name is Steffi,
I am 23 years old and currently in training for a commercial diploma.
Through an aid organisation I came to know my dog Vitez, who was found alone on the street in Hungary when he was 1.5 years old. Vitez came into my life on 7 July and became my faithful companion and best friend. In October 2022, the shock came: Vitez was diagnosed with bilateral hip dysplasia in the highest stage, which causes Vitez extreme pain with every movement.
In order to solve Vitez's problem and to give him a pain-free life, there is only one possibility: two new hip joints for approx. CHF 14‘500.-. Unfortunately, I cannot afford this alone.

In order for Vitez to be able to enjoy a normal dog life again and run around with his dog friends, he urgently needs the first operation. With the operation, his left hip could be relieved. We ask for your support so that together we can give Vitez his first hip replacement. After the first surgery, we will see how Vitez copes with the new hip. The second hip joint will be planned once Vitez has successfully undergone the first operation.

My goal is to raise the amount for Vitez's first hip joint by 30 April 2023. That's why I'm starting this project here on to reach many people. Once the fundraising goal is reached, Vitez will be registered for surgery.
The donations will be used for the following:

  • The cost of the hip joint is approx. 5'500.-

  • The X-ray costs are approx. 1'000.- (pre-control and post-control).

  • Various follow-up checks and staff costs are estimated at 800.-

Total operation costs for both hip operations: approx. CHF 14'500.00.-
Crowddonating goal CHF 6'500.-
The difference will be covered at my own expenses.
Thank you very much for your support!

My motivation for this project is huge, because my dog is my everything. I can't imagine my life without him. Unfortunately, I can't help Vitez alone and hope for all the help I can get. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
