Miss Ladybird had a great recheck ✅ 8 year old Lady came to us when her owner was moving into an assisted living facility and could no longer continue her care. Sadly, Lady arrived obese at 27 pounds, about 10-12 pounds over weight for her body structure. She also arrived with a raging urinary tract infection, likely secondary to her obesity. We have been treating the UTI and she is now 2 weeks into her weight loss plan. We are happy to report she is now down 1.5 pounds to 25.5 pounds 🎉 Urine was collected today, sent off for testing, and we are awaiting those results.
Lady has a significant heart murmur and is scheduled for a full cardiac evaluation and echocardiogram with our wonderful veterinary cardiologist on February 18th. We are hopeful she will be cleared for some gentle activity which will help with her much needed weight loss as well. We will be sure to keep you posted on her progress 💜 Lady is being fostered in Birmingham, Alabama.
