Lex, Marine Corps Bomb-Sniffer – The Rest of the Story!

Posted by Bob under Dog Arthritis

Lex did finally get adopted by the family of Corporal Dustin Lee.  The full background of the story can be read at AARP, The Magazine. Lex has had a hard life and his arthritis really became a major problem recently. 

Lex was taken to Dr. Lee Morgan, a veterinarian in the Geoergetown area of Maryland.  Dr. Morgan is a Vet-Stem credentialed veterinarian and offers stem cell services to his clients.  With the help of many donations, the Lee family raised enough money to fund the stem cell treatment for Lex.  When we at Vet-Stem heard about the story, we were so touched that we have donated a lifetime supply of stem cells for Lex, as he will likely need them with over 50 pieces of shrapnel still lodged in his body.    You too can help Lex by making a donation to the following:
Georgetown Veterinary Hospital
2916 M Street. NW
Washington DC 20007

Checks should be made payable to Dr. Lee Morgan, and the notation should be made on the check for the “Lex Fund”. All donations received will be placed in a special account set up by Georgetown Veterinary Hospital with their bank for Lex’s benefit.  Click here for the full story. Also check out the Military Working Dogs Memorial website for more great stories.

Wow, what a great way to start the Holiday Season!
