SAPPHIRE HAS FOUND HER FOREVER HOME
She’s been with us almost 3 weeks and is a total sweetheart.
At her vet appt she was over 8 lbs. Vet said she should be closer to 6. She seems like she has lost some weight I can now find a harness that fits in the waste and the neck.
She has trouble moving around due to her weight but is already showing progress and is more active. We go for a walk before bed every day and I usually end up carrying her 90% of the time but twice this week she actually walked the entire time.
She is totally transitioned to dog food and her skin allergies are much better. At first we were having to wrap her legs or she would scratch them bloody. This week she has been unwrapped and without a shirt since her bath on Sunday and so far no scratching. She received injections at the vet for allergies and as an antibiotic. They seem to be working well for her. She was horribly constipated when she first came but her improved diet has her quite regular now. The chlorhexidine bath has helped her skin as well.
We are also working on house training which is hard since she rarely ever even went outside with her owner. She loves wandering around the yard and sniffing our boys pee spots and has actually gone potty out there a few times without prodding.
Sapphire is a adorable super sweet little girl who has Valley Fever and sever allergies. She is 3 years old and just joined our family. She is not ready for adoption as of yet and will be seeing our vet soon so watch for her updates.
