Welcome in, Chloe! Chloe’s elderly owner fell on poor health and was no longer able to care for her and unfortunately no other family members were in a position to take her in permanently. So we are happy to be Chloe’s family until we find her her perfect furever family 💕
Darling 8 year old Chloe will undergo her full intake vetting tomorrow and we will be sure to share her medical update once we have all her labwork results in. In the meantime, Miss Chloe is making herself right at home in her foster home in Chesterfield, Missouri 💜
UPDATE AUGUST 2, 2022: 8 year old Chloe (DOB 4/2/2014) recently came into our care when her elderly owner fell on poor health, was no longer able to care for her, and unfortunately no other family members were in a position to take her in permanently. Chloe came to us already spayed, microchipped, and on monthly preventatives, but on Monday she underwent her full intake vetting.
Chloe is overweight at 24 pounds and should be about 20 pounds to reach her ideal weight and best health, so we have started her on strictly portioned weight management food and low calorie treats and should be able to get the extra weight off easily.
All of Chloe’s labwork was negative and normal including her fecal test, heartworm and tick borne illness test, urinalysis, and bloodwork. Additionally, we found her eyes, knees, and hips to be clear and congenitally sound. She does have a mild audible heart murmur which is to be expected for an 8 year old Cavalier due to mitral valve disease (MVD), and we will recommend that her adopting family get her a baseline echocardiogram so that any progression of the MVD can best be monitored and managed.
Lastly, Chloe’s ear cytology revealed some bacteria and yeast which we are treating her for, and she is also in need of a dental which she is scheduled to undergo next week. With the extra weight off, ears treated, and teeth cleaned, she’ll soon be feeling her best self 💕Sweet Chloe was full of kisses for her vet and technician 💋 Her foster mom reports that she is a quintessential love sponge Cavalier 💜 Chloe is being fostered in Chesterfield, Missouri.
UPDATE AUGUST 10, 2022: Tomorrow, precious 8 year old Chloe in Chesterfield, Missouri will undergo her dental. We will also be rechecking her ears following treatment for infection, and getting an updated weight after she’s been on her “diet plan” a couple weeks now 💕
Over the weekend she attended a Cavalier Pawty in St. Louis and her foster mom reports, “Chloe showed confidence! She ‘worked the room’ and would come back to check in with me every so often. She did excellent around all pups and is truly wanting to be petted by anyone and everyone!” 💜 Very impressive, Chloe! We believe this special girl shows real therapy dog potential 🌟
