Bear's family was moving out of their house and Bear was supervising the loading of the van. In his enthusiasm, he ran right out the door and into the path of the family car, which backed up into him. He was x-rayed, but appeared to be fine and was sent home to rest with his family. Ten days later, he became lethargic, lost interest in food and had difficulty urinating. The vet referred Bear to Purdue University's veterinary teaching hospital. Despite his original diagnosis, Bear had a broken pelvis as a result of his accident. The broken bone had caused a tear in his urethra, the tube that carries urine from the bladder out of the body. As a result, urine was leaking into his abdomen. Multiple surgeries were necessary to drain and clean his abdomen, insert catheters and repair the tear in his urethra. His family was financially strained by their recent move and by Bear's large medical bills. They contacted Labrador Life Line for assistance and we funded a portion of the veterinary hospital bill. Bear is recovering from his trauma and is fortunate to have a family who has his best interests at heart.
