August 1, 2013 - Shoney is going to her forever home tomorrow. She will be living with a male pug who was adopted from UMWPR last year.
July 27, 2013 - Shoney is feeling 100% better than when she came in a few weeks ago. Not that her teeth have been cleaned, that she got spayed and had 3 tumours removed, had received antibiotics to treat her sore mouth and artificial tears for her eyes, she is ready for a bright and happy future. She has started to be playful and she is a real cuddle bug.
July 24, 2013 - Shoney seems to be doing much better with her new smile and the meds for her eyes. She has a good appetite and enjoyts that soft food. Shoney is nowavailable for adoption.
July 21, 2013 - The lab result came back negative for Shoney's tumors so cancer is ruled out. Yeah....Shoney will soon be available for adoption.
July 17, 2013 - Shoney was spayed today, she had 2 tumors removed (they will sent to the lab for analysis), she had 10 teeth removed and had her eyes tested. Spaying surgery and tumors removal went very well. She had 16 teeth removed so she now has 8 teeth left. The Schirmer test (verifies tear production) came back with 1 on the left eye and 3 on the right which means her eyes produce next to no tears. She has been put on Tear Gel, Ciloxan (antibiotics) and Optimune and the vet wants to assess her back in one week. The pressure in her eyes is normal so glaucoma was ruled out. Shoney does have mild cataracts in both eyes which is quite normal given her age and she can see quite well. Despite all this, little Shoney has a good spirit and she's a fighter. She was slowly waking up this afternoon when I called the clinic and is going back to her foster home tonite for a smooth recovery. Am sure that from now on, she will start feeling much better and her truth personality will come out. Stay tuned for more news about this exquisite little girl.
July 12, 2013 - Shoney went to the vet tonite. The vet estimated that she would be closer to 11 years old. SHe has some discomfort in her eyes but the vet was unable to do further testing as Shoney was moving too much. He will have more tests done to her eyes next week when she goes for her spaying surgery and her dental. He is suspecting that it might be glaucoma. She has been put on Tramadol for 10 days. Shoney weights 16lbs and she's a sweet girl. She's good with other dogs and follows you everywhere.
July 11, 2013 - Shoney is adjusting to her new environment. She's more people oriented than dogs but she gets along well with them around her. Shoney is a little protective of her food so we are feeding her apart from the other dogs. She's eating well and is going outside to do her business. She sleeps well through the night. Shoney will be visiting the vet tonite for a complete check up and to be brought up to date in her vaccination.
July 9, 2013 - Shoney came in tonite. She was left in an appartment for a few days with another dog with no food or water. She was very dehydrated but never lost her good spirit. Shoney is about 9 yers old and she will be going to the vet in the coming week for a complete check up. We will then schedule her spaying surgery and she will also need to have her teeth cleaned. Stay tuned for more info on this sweet little girl.
