Lexie came to Harmony Veterinary Center when she was just 8-weeks-old, a bright, happy puppy full of life and joy. When she was five-months-old, that all changed. Lexie became very ill, and while at the emergency clinic late one night, she was diagnosed with sterile Spinal Meningitis. Her family was devastated. They were in the process of getting pet insurance when she was diagnosed, and with the diagnosis she would no longer qualify.
Lexie had a serious nervous system insult. The family had no hope, and while the consensus of many vets was to put her down, none of us at Harmony Veterinary Center could dream of doing so. We agreed to take custody of Lexie and do everything possible to heal her. The family agreed to help us raise money and stay active in her life.
Lexie spent her days at Harmony Veterinary Center and received the best of both complimentary and traditional medical treatments. She was fostered by a neighborhood family who later adopted her, and the community of 5 Parks in Arvada came together to raise money for her medical expenses. In addition, many veterinarians donated their time and services. Even animal health companies like Merial and Idexx pitched in to help this special dog. Better yet, the whole community had the joy of watching her come back to full and vibrant health.
Now ten years old, Lexie is not only the founder of The Lexie Fund, but also the Harmony Veterinary Center mascot. She has a rich social life, and very much enjoys her time at the clinic where she provides love and support to pets and people who need it. It is only fitting for Lexie to give back to a community that gave so much to her. Her legacy is one of helping other pets achieve positive outcomes.
