Instead of running after balls, Marley was running out of time.
Marley had a large inguinal mass which was growing rapidly and required surgical removal. Because of its size and continued growth, the vet felt the mass was pushing around Marley's internal organs, most likely his bladder, which made it difficult for Marley to urinate. The growth also affected Marley's gait.
The vet said Marley needed surgery as soon as possible or else it would be too difficult to remove the mass. He also felt that the mass was benign, but couldn't be sure, so a biopsy would be required.
Marley’s mom came to Labrador Life Line for assistance.
All Labs deserve the chance to get well. Because of your support and generous donations Labs like Marley do get the chance they may not otherwise get.
Marley's prognosis was good.
Marley turned 11 today, thanks to you. We thought we would send you a couple of photos. He is doing incredibly well and we are thankful for your help every single day!
Love, Marley & Marley's mom.
