HEALTH UPDATE

June 2022: Now at 15, two years after arrival, Ripley has slowed down a bit but is as charming and comical as always. She can’t see perfectly any more but she can sense where all the action is and keeps track like any smart Border Collie.  She’s always fit right in with any new rescues landing at the Sanctuary and stays on her purpose!  We’ve been carefully managing the protein levels in her urine due to renal disease and so far, the balancing of medications has worked out well.

RIPLEY'S HISTORY

SANCTUARY RESIDENT RIPLEY is a live-wire, just the funniest, most focused Senior we’ve seen in awhile... the game of ball play is HER happiness for sure and frankly, any toy will do as well! We chuckle seeing this girl come to life once her arthritic pain was handled in rescue as well as medical challenges like incontinence... her energy blossomed.

Ripley is the life of the party, Border Collie style, meaning it’s her way or the highway so she is the boss of the rescue pack and needs a little guidance from time to time. Innocently, she looks up to say. "What, me??" Such a smart, alert and classic brilliant BC. She’s slowed down a bit now since the early arrival days but we are sure if Ripley can muster the energy for one more toss…she will!

She is about 40 pounds and fits in with the pack pretty well, enjoying the stimulation of others that herd everything too but more importantly, she loves her Princess status! Her renal disease is advancing but we’re doing everything to give her more time to enjoy life!

Health Challenges: Ripley is on Gabapentin for pain management, Proin to manage incontinence, Telmisartan for proteinuria, Clopidogel for her heart condition and prescription food for her kidney disease.
