Ike, December 2001
Ike was living with a family whose yard was not securely fenced. Ike had wandered off from his yard before, but his last adventure was not a happy one: he was hit by a car, resulting in a broken leg and many deep lacerations. A neighbor rushed the five year old black male Lab to a vet clinic for emergency treatment of his injuries.
Ike's owners declined to pay for his emergency care, and he was turned over to a local rescue group in Lagrange, GA. While he was recovering in a foster home, Ike's leg became infected, and his cast needed to be removed. Luckily, his leg was healing well, and with rest and good food, Ike is making a fine recovery. Ike was also provided with the vaccines and heartworm preventive that his owners had neglected to provide for him.
All of this care was very costly, of course, and Ike's rescuers asked LABMED for help in paying the bills for Ike. We were happy to be able to contribute to Ike's medical treatment. This sweet and gentle dog can now begin his new life - this time with a properly fenced yard to ensure his safety!
