Blair Born- Pet Highlight
Blair Born is a very sweet geriatric black Labrador Retriever that was referred to the Pekin Veterinary Clinic in February of 2011 for physical therapy. We were able to get Blair up and moving better with the physical therapy laser treatments and acupuncture. Radiographs on Blair’s right front leg were taken in May and confirmed that Blair had Osteosarcoma, or bone cancer in her leg. The University of Illinois amputated her leg in June and in August we started administering chemo therapy. Blair has continued to have a great attitude and an awesome outlook on life. She still takes her medicines like a good girl and can get around very well on just three legs. She is a success story in every way and we are proud to have contributed to her success.
