HEALTH UPDATE

May 2022
Mick’s liver biopsy and gall bladder culture results both reveal challenges that will take at least six months to solve. The infection in the gall bladder will be treated for 6 weeks and the liver requires a new diet as well as additional supplementation. He has a very unusual situation with high copper and iron levels so monitoring over time will reveal if this lessens or not.

Mick will remain unavailable until we can clarify his condition and needs. We so want the best health for this wonderful Border Collie!

MICK'S HISTORY

MICK is almost 11, having been in rescue for nearly a year. A lively petite guy, he is sweet and friendly and enjoys car rides going anywhere! He just wants to be by the side of his person as a great companion and beloved canine friend! A great little guy, everyone who meets Mick, adores him!

Mick has had health challenges since arrival that at the end of April finally culminated in life-saving surgery to remove his gall bladder and spleen. The supplements diagnosed by the vet for many months did help, but in the end, removal was the only answer.

Mick is the early recovery days and doing well, eating far better than all the prior months. We are keeping a close eye on him to be sure he receives all the support he needs to flourish. And we are also excited to see the ‘new’ Mick when he is feeling 100%! He will require a special diet and annual bloodwork but otherwise, is expected to do well!
