I’m looking for my Furever Digs – can I go home with you? ;@
Age: 1 year old
Medical Note: Flip Flop was born with a slight eyelid defect that was causing corneal discomfort and put her at risk for corneal ulcers and blindness. She had surgery to correct this on 1/24/2017 and is doing great! By nature of the surgical correction (partial tarsoraphy), Flip Flop's eye opening was made to be slightly smaller by joining a few millimeters of the outer edges. After all the swelling goes down (in about 6 months), the size difference between her two eyes should be minor. While it will take a few months for her to look her normal, beautiful self again, Flip Flop's eye is now no longer tearing and most importantly, not uncomfortable nor at risk to corneal scarring and blindness. Flip Flop is ready to find her furever home!
Medical Note: This dog was treated for demodectic mange while in the SOS program. The dog has responded well to this treatment. Please note that demodex can flare up in any dog in times of stress (eg, transport, transition to a new home, change in food, etc). As such, the adopter is advised to discuss this condition and best next steps with their veterinarian. SOS recommends that dogs with a history of demodectic mange be kept on regular NexGard or Bravecto for flea/tick prevention for at least 3 months or until 18 months of age. Please see here for more information on demodectic mange: http://www.vcahospitals.com/main/pet-health-information/article/animal-health/mange-demodectic-in-dogs/741. Please check with your vet if you should have any questions or concerns about this condition, and discuss any concerns you may have with your SOS Adoption Counselor.
Medical Note: This dog tested positive for exposure to ehrlichia while in SOS foster care. This does not mean that this dog had ehrlichia. This dog is/has been asymptomatic while in SOS care and was preventatively treated with a 28-day course of doxycycline. Please see here for more information on ehrlichia: https://en.wikipedia.org/
**Additional info you should know - For most of our dogs, we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each of our dogs as an individual and do our best to describe and place them based on personality not breed label. Some dogs may not yet be in New England, nor ready for immediate adoption. There may be additional vetting, quarantine, waiting periods and/or fees depending upon your state of residence. If you have questions or concerns on any of this, you can discuss this with your Adoption Counselor.
