Troubles for Stella

Stella has had a rough few weeks. Several teeth were removed in July. A troublesome oronasal fistula has not healed, resulting in two follow-up procedures. Today’s exam by the vet revealed that the fistula, while not completely healed, is in acceptable condition. The prognosis is guardedly optimistic pending next week’s follow-up.

Throughout this time she has had a good appetite, been interested and alert, and extraordinarily resilient. She was understandably reluctant to submit to the exam, though once it began she endured with no growling, snarling, or snapping. What an amazing girl she is. How lucky I am to have her.
