Success Stories

Max3, December, 2000

Max3 It was a dark winter night in North Carolina when Max was hit by a car. Max was rushed to an emergency veterinary hospital by his owners where he was stabilized and treated for shock. When it became clear that Max had a severely injured leg, though, the owners released Max to the hospital for euthanasia. But luckily for Max, one of the vet techs at the hospital stepped in and rescued this sweet, gentle Lab.

Max's x-rays showed that there was a fracture in the head of his right femur, and suggested that his cruciate ligament had been ruptured. Surgery was promptly scheduled, and the vet tech began a search for funds to help Max. LABMED was contacted and quickly voted to pay for Max's surgery. The veterinary hospital also offered a generous discount on all of their services!

The surgery went well - Max's hip was repaired and fortunately his knee injury was not as severe as anticipated - no surgery was needed. While he was still recovering from the surgery, Max was adopted by a recent vet school graduate and her husband. Max is now enjoying life as a pampered pet: being spoiled rotten is just what he deserves!
