Sponsor Animal Update: Victoria
Victoria: 2nd Quarter 2011
The return of more birds in the backyard is delightful to Victoria’s family. However, Victoria wants to chase them and flush them out. She listens for the chirps, whistles, songs and then tries to locate them, even if they are sitting on a telephone wire above or flying by over her head. On her walks, she sometimes spots a bird flitting about in a bush. She would go charging in there if her foster mother let her. After all, that is part of her instincts; yet her Cavalier housemate dog is not nearly as proactive about chasing them. Victoria recently had a haircut and bath and looks great! Her echocardiogram was good and the cardiologist is still not prescribing medicine yet for her heart condition. It is status quo for now. Her licking and scratching does increase in the spring, but she is on Benadryl for that and it is helping. They continue with ointment for her dry eye and she will probably need it for the rest of her life.
