Buddy’s Story –
Buddy, a 10 year old Chocolate Lab, was rescued as a puppy by the family of a retired US Navy officer. Recently Buddy exhibited symptoms such as drooling, coughing and gagging. He was diagnosed with a malignant tumor in the back of his throat and referred to Dr. Sweet at Ocean State Veterinary Specialists.
The cost of Buddy’s care was too high for his senior caregivers to afford, but thanks to the efforts of STAR and other organizations, Buddy underwent successful surgery and came through like a trooper!
