Precious Lady was recently welcomed into our rescue after being retired and released from breeding, and has since undergone her full intake vetting. Lady will turn 8 years old next month (DOB 5/16/2013) and pleased to share that she is an overall healthy girl 💕 She has clear eyes, knees, and hips, and just a mild grade 1 heart murmur likely due to the onset of mitral valve disease (MVD). She has some yeasty ears that are are treating her for. Otherwise, the rest of her physical exam checked out well and all her labwork including her heartworm and tick borne illness test, fecal test, urinalysis, and bloodwork was normal and negative. She was cleared for her spay surgery and dental where she lost 4 bad teeth.
Lady is a larger girl but also overweight, weighing 30 pounds. We feel her ideal weight is about 25 pounds so we will be working to get those extra pounds off in foster care. She will return to the vet in a couple weeks to ensure her incision and mouth has healed from her procedures and to recheck her ears and weight to be sure we are moving in the right direction. In the meantime, she’s getting settled in to her foster home in St. Louis, Missouri
