Yellow lab Wrigley was a playful Lab and was playing Frisbee when the three-year-old lab tore the CCL (cranial cruciate ligament) on his right knee. If that wasn't enough, the left one also was about to go. Both injuries required immediate treatment. In order to heal and mend, Wrigley required bilateral Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy (TPLO) surgery on both knees. Wrigley's vet said that the procedure needed to be done together so his right knee and his left knee will be as good as new. The vet also added that Wrigley's prognosis was good to excellent and that in a few weeks he should be as good as new.
However, TPLO surgery is costly, and in this case, it was twice as much. His loving and caring owner was a young student and was unable to afford the care his best pal needed to get well again. That was when he came to Labrador Life Line for help.
Thanks to the support and generosity of Labrador Life Line’s donors, Wrigley had his surgery and after a few weeks of rest and rehab, he should be back to his playful self.
