Miss Sadie, a shy senior lady nearly eleven years old, joined us in July 2020. Before Joining us, she spent a long time in an overcrowded shelter with frequent flooding from violent storms, no heat in the winter and no air conditioning the summer. A neglected stray, Sadie arrived with sore joints, was overweight, greatly in need of dental care and a bath; and on top of everything else she had advanced heartworm disease. A dental, medication for achy joints and a good diet greatly improved her quality of life.
But even with treatment, her heartworm disease has taken its toll. Sadie is loved and doted on by her “fospice” parents, Jen and Jason. She relishes a good nap, a leisurely stroll and is doing well on the supportive medications for congestive heart failure.
Our veterinary partner for Sadie’s veterinary care is Alameda East Veterinary Hospital.
