Sandy Gets Her Summer Grooming!

Sandy getting older, she's 20 this year. Older animals sometimes don't shed their heavy winter "coats" as well as younger ones, and the fur tends to mat. With the weather warming up this was a good time to shave off that fur before it matted and it became too warm.

Shaving Sandy is a team effort

Sandy is monitored carefully while under anesthesia

As with animals we've posted earlier who are getting shaved or dental work, when we sedate any of our animals, they get a complete physical -- dental if needed, blood work, exam, ears, eyes, nose and throat, etc. We are ready to address any problems we may find. Sandy's physical went well, she's in good shape; we're just waiting for her blood work to come back. She's older, so we must keep a close eye on kidney and liver values.

Sandy gets a physical exam by our veterinarians, above, and below, gets her heart checked.

Sandy woke up slowly and was doing well by last night. This morning she was back to her ole self, greeting us and ready to go out. She came back in for dinner tonight and ate like there was no tomorrow. She'll look a little different for a week or two, but then her summer fur will start growing back ....

Thanks to Popcorn Park Veterinary Staff for keeping Sandy beautiful and healthy.

You can sponsor Sandy on the Popcorn Park Wildlife Club - she always welcomes new friends.
