Lulu's Legacy

Tim and Sandy Day established Lulu's Legacy Fund to honor Lulu, their beloved 8-year-old pug. Lulu's little snores and snorts were always endearing to the Days, until they realized those cute pug traits were signs that she was having difficulty breathing. As her symptoms worsened, Lulu's family realized they had to take action or her life would be cut short. After an unsuccessful surgery that actually compounded her respiratory issues, the Days traveled to CSU's Veterinary Teaching Hospital. At the VTH, Dr. Eric Monnet, who specializes in minimally invasive surgical techniques, worked with the Days to determine the best course of treatment. While the Days had prepared themselves for an aggressive procedure - a permanent tracheostomy - Dr. Monnet was able to treat Lulu with a less invasive surgery.

Throughout Lulu's treatment at the VTH, the Days were impressed with the genuine concern, kindness, and support the entire staff provided not only to their cherished pug, but to the entire family. The success of Lulu's surgery at the VTH has meant that she can now enjoy long walks and play sessions with her yellow squeaky ball, and that her sassy personality of years past has returned. Lulu's Legacy Fund will support research and development of an intralaryngeal stent designed to help dogs suffering from laryngeal collapse and laryngeal paralysis. This minimally invasive procedure could benefit many dogs like Lulu, who currently have few options to alleviate their respiratory distress.
