Genesis, July 2002
Genesis, a 63-pound, 3-year-old female black Lab, was in the Brennan Animal Shelter in New York for about 7 days before her family-to-be was contacted by an adoption clinic in Scotia. It was easy to fall in love with this sweet young Lab, who was housebroken, well trained, and gentle with children.
When her prospective family met Genesis at the shelter, it was clear that she had a bilateral ear infection. After the second day at home, however, they noticed that she had trouble with her rear legs when she tried to get up, and when she walked, she limped. Her adopters immediately sought veterinary help, which revealed that Genesis had ruptured her right rear anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). With surgery, however, Genesis had a good prognosis.
The veterinarian proceeded with orthopedic surgery,
and her family sought help with this unanticipated expense. When
contacted, LABMED was pleased to help fund the care that gave Genesis an
unencumbered second chance for a good life in a loving home.
