Sweet 11 year old Trixie was recently welcomed into our care and underwent her intake vetting. She came to us already spayed and up to date on vaccinations, so she received a microchip, a thorough physical exam, and we ran off full labwork.
Overall, Trixie is in good shape. Her fecal test was negative, heartworm and tick borne illness test was negative, and all her bloodwork was normal. Her urinalysis did reveal a urinary tract infection which she is now being treated for. She does need a dental cleaning and a cyst removed from her paw that is giving her some trouble, so next Friday she will undergo that. We will be rechecking her urine at that time to be sure she her UTI has cleared. Like almost all Cavaliers at her age, she does have an audible heart murmur due to mitral valve disease (MVD), although she is asymptomatic at this time. Her eyes and knees are still clear and congenitally sound.
Due to circumstances she found herself in with her previous family, she had not been receiving much attention outside of someone taking her out for pottying. We are happy to report that she is now receiving endless love and attention and being spoiled rotten in her foster home in Baton Rouge, Louisiana 💜
