Lucky6, June 2002
This sweet young black female Lab was found wandering as a stray, and was taken to the Union County Humane Society in Marysville, OH. When no one appeared to claim her, "Lucky" was rescued and taken to a foster home until a new and permanent home could be found.
Her foster parents noticed that Lucky was limping on one of her back legs, and they took her to a veterinarian for evaluation. X-rays showed that Lucky's right rear hip was completely out of the socket, most likely the result of being hit by a car. An FHO procedure, to remove the ball of the femur and allow a "false joint" to form, was recommended for Lucy. With the surgery, she could expect to live an active and happy life. Lucky's foster family contacted LABMED for help in funding the FHO, and we were glad to be able to help.
Lucy had her surgery and was spayed at the same time. She made an excellent recovery (although she didn't enjoy wearing her protective "lampshade" collar), and once her rehabilitation is complete she will be ready to find a new family to love.
