Welcome in, Happy! Sadly, Happy’s owner recently passed away unexpectedly and other family members were not able to give him the time and standard of care that he’s accustomed to and deserves… so 11 year old Happy will be apart of our rescue family until we find him the perfect family who can 💜
Tomorrow, Happy will undergo his intake vetting and we will be sure to sure a medical update once all his labwork is in. Handsome Happy is being fostered in Birmingham, Alabama 💕
UPDATE SEPTEMBER 26, 2022: Last week we introduced you to handsome Happy who came into our care after his owner passed away unexpectedly. 11 year old Happy (DOB 8/15/2011) was well loved and well cared for and came to us already up to date on vaccinations, neutered, microchipped, and on monthly preventatives. He visited our vet for a thorough physical and full labwork.
We found Happy to be a healthy senior boy with just normal, typical aging changes. He does have an audible heart murmur due to mitral valve disease (MVD), which is to be expected for a Cavalier of his age. We will recommend that his family get him a baseline echocardiogram so the disease can best be monitored and managed. All of his labwork including his fecal test, heartworm and tick borne illness test, urinalysis, and bloodwork were all normal and negative. He does need a dental cleaning which is he scheduled for next week. Lastly, he is a few pounds overweight at 21 pounds and we are working to get that off in foster care.
Happy is a very friendly, sweet, social, and spry boy who at 11 is still very young at heart 💕 Happy is being fostered in Birmingham, Alabama.
