Tally, a sweet 10 year old yellow female, was seriously injured in February, 2002. A horrific ice storm hit her city and a 12 inch diameter limb fell from a tree onto Tally. This resulted in a broken vertebrae. Tally was immediately taken to her vet, who sadly misdiagnosed her. Within a few days her symptoms worsened and Tally was unable to walk. Tally's concerned owners took her quickly to the university vet school where she received a CT scan, courtesy of the vet school. Due to the time elapsed the surgery that may have helped Tally was no longer available to her. It was too late for that. IMOM assisted with the additional vet school charges and also helped Tally's owners with the purchase of a 'wheelchair'. At this point, the therapy that Tally requires is hydrotherapy and electroacupuncture. Tally is beginning to move her legs as the lost muscle mass slowly begins to rebuild itself.
Once again, the generosity of Labrador Life Line supporters has made it possible for a sweet girl like Tally to receive the specialized care she so badly needs.
