Bailey7, January 2003
When some compassionate people in Magnolia, Texas posted signs about an orphaned female yellow Lab they'd found, no one responded. Hearing nothing for more than two months, they turned her over to the Southeast Texas Labrador Retriever Rescue organization. They named this yellow girl Bailey, and at 73 pounds and approximately 5 years of age, she was found to be heartworm positive.
Without treatment to eradicate the heartworms, Bailey would die. Fortunately, the veterinarian who treated Bailey agreed to grant a rescue discount. When called upon for help by this newly formed Lab rescue organization, LABMED was happy to help pay Bailey's veterinary fees.
Bailey is just one of many neglected Labs who, as a result of not being given preventive heartworm treatment, end up with a life-threatening infection. Bailey, however, is one of the lucky ones. Bailey's team of rescuers and her good prognosis made it possible for Bailey to enjoy the rest of her life in a forever home!
