Success Stories

Buddy18, September 2002

Buddy18Buddy, a 7-month-young male chocolate Lab, was turned over to a shelter by a person or persons unknown who described this little guy as a litter runt. When his sweet face appeared in an online adoption ad, a couple in Kingwood, Texas reached out and volunteered to foster him. His foster parents adored Buddy and became concerned that he not only weighed just 19 pounds, but also seemed to hold at that weight. Thus they took him to Kingwood Animal Hospital for an explanation and help in fixing whatever was preventing Buddy from growing.

An exploratory procedure revealed that Buddy had an intussusception, or blockage in his bowel, which would require surgery. Although there were risks such as lifelong diarrhea and loss of bowel control, Buddys problem proved to be relatively easy to repair. Buddy recovered without any side effects from the procedure. His grateful foster parents, who hadn't anticipated invasive surgery at the tender age of 7 months, were willing to pay but needed some help. LABMED helped by contributing the small portion that Buddy's parents requested. Today, Buddy continues to gain weight and delight his new foster parents, who have fallen in love with him and decided to keep him forever!
