Once she was bathed and fleas eradicated, her coat started to regrow on her back, legs and feet. Vet felt that her only issue was the flea allergy and not a food or environmental allergy condition. Soothing oatmeal baths once a week to pamper her skin was recommended. Teeth are in reasonable shape for her age per vet. Lady is microchipped, heartworm negative and on preventative. Foster Comments: Lady is a typical Brittany. Her ears were significant for a yeast infection that was treated. She allows her ears to be cleaned, is excellent in the bath, good about being groomed, was good for the vet tech who trimmed her nails. Lady likes a soft place to nap, be petted, long walks daily and a bowl of food shared with you being nearby. She had a full senior panel done and because of the significant prolonged flea infestation, she was VERY mildly anemic. All other values were excellent. Mild decrease in strength to her hind quarters has improved greatly with regular activity and a daily pack walk. She is a very sweet and loving older gal who is not demanding and such a joy to be around.if you are interested in giving this sweet girl a home in her senior years, please fill out an adoption application.
