Buck's life was a constant struggle.
After being neutered, the student vet who performed the procedure did not have the heart to send him back to the high kill shelter he came from. Without hesitation, she put the call in…to Mom! Mom was the President Love of Labs Rescue and agreed to take Buck in. Not long after, the young vet took to the task of fostering Buck. Soon after, Buck was diagnosed has heartworm positive.
Buck required a three-step treatment plan, which included Melarsomine (Immiticide), pain medications, and antibiotics. When Love of Labs rescue contacted Labrador Life Line for funding assistance, Buck was already on doxycycline as a pretreatment. With proper treatment, his prognosis was good.
A few days after we approved funding, Buck met a potential adoptive family. Labrador Life Life is hoping Buck’s search for a forever home is now over
