Earlier this week, 10 month old Winston underwent his full intake vetting so we could learn more about him and his health. We found him to be congenitally sound at this time with clear eyes, knees, hips, and heart. The rest of his physical exam checked out normal except for an enlarged lymph node. His bloodwork results just came in and his white blood cell count and neutrophils are elevated which along with the enlarged lymph node supports the idea that he is fighting some sort of virus or infection. Therefore, we have started him on a broad spectrum antibiotic and then will be rechecking his CBC to ensure it has normalized. The rest of his labwork including his fecal test, heartworm and tick borne illness test, and urinalysis were all normal and negative. We do not have a vaccination history on Winston, and because it’s likely he received his “puppy vaccinations”, we opted to titer test instead of vaccinating to check his protection levels instead of putting him at risk of overvaccination. We just got those results in and he is indeed already protected against distemper and parvo so no additional vaccines needed ✔️ Once Winston finishes his antibiotics and receives a normal CBC, he will then undergo his neuter surgery. Until then, he’s pulling typical puppy antics in his foster home in Berkeley Lake, Georgia 💜

Cavalier Rescue of Alabama dba The Cavalier Rescue rescues, rehabilitates, and rehomes Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. Our dogs come in by breeder surrenders, owner surrenders, puppy mill dispersal auctions, shelter transfers, and strays. We work with shelters in many areas including Humane Society Partnerships in Birmingham, Mobile, Huntsville, Anniston, Oxford, Lineville, Pell City, Tuscaloosa Montgomery, Dothan as well as several in Dallas and North Texas. We have active teams in Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Louisiana, and Texas. We partner with other rescues for the greatest impact possible.
We also focus on prevention which includes education. We support the Alabama Puppy Mill Project. Our founders helped rescue the dogs of Rock Cliff Farms in November of 2014. We advise people to be wary of breeders/puppy mills that use terms to market their dogs such as: Mini or miniature Cavalier, health guarantee, try to avoid answering questions, or won’t allow potential buyers to meet the parents and see where they live. Never buy a puppy from a pet store. Pet store puppies are puppy mill puppies.
We take care to give the dogs in our program everything they need to thrive with complete health evaluations and treatment, including eye specialists, cardiac specialists and orthopedic specialists. We treat luxating patellas, hip dysplasia, cardiac murmurs/insufficiencies, cancer, obesity, eye issues, and whatever else a dog may need to obtain best state of health.
