Miss Scarlett is a living miracle. At a very young age, she developed severe abdominal fluid build up due to an enlarged heart. We were told her prognosis was very poor. We did what we felt was best for her under the direct supervision of our veterinarian. She went through an intensive regimen of heart medication (Pimobendan), antibiotics, and daily supplements of Taurine to reverse the issues we believed were caused in-utero, by a diet that was low in taurine long before she was even conceived.
Scarlett was safely and successfully spayed after two of our girls with similar issues had an ultrasound and it was revealed both girls had normal heart function! We believe Scarlett is now out of danger, however we feel yearly visits to the veterinarian and a diet rich in taurine would be essential to her health.
If you feel Scarlett would be a good match to your family, please fill out our simple online questionnaire:
Please don't forget to include your phone number so we may arrange a meet and greet! Thank you so much for considering adopting from ELM!
A quick note; Scarlett is such a lovely, affectionate, and sweet girl. We feel she would thrive as an only pet or where there are children over 10 and no other "aggressive/dominant" pets.
Most adoptions may take a couple days, sometimes they may take a couple weeks. This ensures that all of our rescues are placed with the right families and guarantees everyone is confident with their rescue. We don't say goodbye when you leave ELM, we say "We look forward to many updates" as you become part of our growing ELM family. We are always available for questions long after the adoption takes place and love to offer advice for any problems or concerns you may be experiencing. Of course, we usually get the funny stories and photos of your beautiful new babies and have been complimented on our care and support long after the adoption process.
Thank you for considering adopting from ELM!
