Sister is a very sweet older lady who is looking for her own lap. Her journey to us is sad but not horrible. Her original dad passed away in 2021. He had made arrangement for her to go to another gentleman who was the husband to a current foster parent. Unfortunately he passed away earlier this year. 

Penni contacted Laurie that she was concerned about Sister. Laurie took her to our vet and was fearing the worse. Luckily Dr. Stephanie was able to give her an oportunity with some heart meds as her blood panel was pretty good. 

Sister is with Laurie as she needed meds twice a day. Within weeks, Sister was doing so much better that her meds were dropped to once a day. Update: Laurie has left for the east coast and has returned Sister to Penni. 

Laurie's other concern, as with any older companion was her teeth. Sister did receive a full dental in May 2022. During this session, 23 teeth were extracted. So she is back on meds twice a day but will soon be back to once a day. Maybe in time the levels can be adjusted down if the coughing is kept in control.

When Sister came home from her dental, she got in line and demanded her daily chew. Laurie gave her one of the thinner ones and Sister went to town on it. She still makes sure she gets not only her daily chew treat, but her 5 pm. wet food. Since her dental, she has taken to chunching some dry kibble a few days later.

Sister now is looking for her final lap to grace. You will receive a copy of the blood work and dental. You do have the option to continue to use our vet by transferring her to your own account when an appointment is needed.

If you would like to schedule a meet-n-greet text at (559) 372-9732.

As with any new companion, it is wise to spend good quality time with them and let them explore their new surrounding while you set the boundaries. It is also good to make sure they have a "special" area they can escape to when company comes. This will make both you and your companion have a much better relationship.

Love of Animals will screen potential adoption parents to ensure the companion WILL NOT be a fighting dog.
