Success Stories

Lily, October, 2001


A constantly wrinkled brow gives Lily a worried expression. This is natural as Lily is a Labrador Shar Pei mix. But, Lily had reason to be worried. She had been hit by a car, then abandoned by her owners at a veterinary clinic in Minnesota.

Representatives from Homeward Bound Dog Rescue were contacted and they took Lily in. The encounter with the car had left her with fractures of her pelvis and the femurs of both hind legs. The pelvis healed on its own, but the legs could not.

Surgery was required to remove the ball of each femur. This would allow a 'false' joint to form and relieve Lily of the extreme pain she was constantly in. The rescue group was not able to fund the surgery, so turned to LABMED for help.

Lily is recovering nicely and constantly amazes her foster family with how well she is getting around. She runs around the yard and can take walks of 20 minutes now.
