Adorable 8 year old Gabby (DOB 6/12/2012) joined our program after she was surrendered by her family - they felt she needed more attention than they could give her. She has since undergone her full intake vetting at our pawtnering clinic, Caldwell Mill Animal Clinic 🐾 Gabby’s heartworm and tick borne illness test was negative, her fecal test negative, and her urinalysis and bloodwork normal. While her eyes, knees, and hips are clear, a significant heart murmur was detected during her physical exam. She is scheduled to undergo a full cardiac evaluation and echocardiogram with our veterinary cardiologist on 9/28.. If cleared, she will undergo a dental cleaning soon after.
Gabby is already spayed and microchipped and is now up to date on vaccinations as well. She is overweight at 25 pounds but should have no problem shedding the extra 5+ pounds now that she is getting plenty of stimulation and activity and eating high quality, low calorie, strictly portioned meals. We will be sure to post a cardiac update on her after her evaluation on Tuesday 💜 Gabby is being fostered in Birmingham, Alabama.
