Two-year-old Maggie from Ohio was a playful Lab when she tore her cranial cruciate ligament (CCL.) One of the most common knee injuries in dogs, especially larger breeds like Labrador Retrievers, is a ruptured cruciate ligament.
Her vet put her on medication to help alleviate some of the pain, but the medicine was upsetting her stomach. The meds were only a temporary solution. In order to mend, Maggie required surgery.
The surgery was costly, and like so, her family was unable to afford it. That was when her family came to Labrador Life Line for assistance.
Thanks to the support and generosity of Labrador Life Line's donors, Maggie was able to have the surgery she needed. The vet and her family said after a few weeks of rest and rehab, Maggie should be back to her playful self.
