found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
Ella’s urinary incontinence is well controlled with medication. She takes Proin twice daily and DES once weekly. Our veterinarian scored Ella’s Medial Patellar Luxations as a 1/4 on her right leg and a 2/4 on her left leg.
Ella’s medical issues are pretty minor in the scheme of things. We don’t typically recommend surgery for luxating patellas in small dogs where the condition isn’t causing a problem. Our consulting orthopedic practice also doesn’t recommend surgery. We’ve had adopters take a new pet to the vet and luxation was diagnosed and surgery recommended for a completely non-painful, intermittent condition. I can’t think of a case in the last MANY years of a small dog that surgery was performed on an adoption dog.
Her urinary incontinence is controlled and she may even be able to be weaned off all meds over time – consider time in many months to years. The meds are CHEAP!! We had her DES filled since it wasn’t sent with her at surrender. A year’s supply for $30 --- we had Monument Pharmacy compound it. I just priced the Proin thru our vet clinic and 60 tablets is $19.50 – this will last 2 months. There would also be routine exam charges +/- tax applied.
