Clyde came to us after spending time wandering in rural NE Texas. He's very socialized with people but had terrible dental infection, was hungry, and was dehydrated. Clyde has since received a full-mouth extraction and his mouth feels much better! He eats regular food, we just wet it first so it's easier for him to lick up. He also has somewhat limited vision due to cataracts and is selectively deaf. Clyde is feisty and has a lot of personality. However, we discovered very quickly that he had additional concerns. Our vet diagnosed him with a very severe heart murmur and an enlarged heart, both due to congestive heart failure. Now that Clyde is on daily medications he is doing well at managing his condition. He has more energy, feels good, and enjoys life. Clyde's long-term prognosis is hard to predict, but for now we know he will need to continue his medication for the remainder of his days. We also know he has some minor issues with urinary incontinence, which is related to both age and the medicine. Fortunately he prefers to go out to do his business so we can usually avoid most of what would otherwise have been accidents. Clyde is a love, and for someone who appreciates a senior with character, personality, and a happy-go-lucky attitude he is a great pet. Meanwhile he comfy in his foster home and is perfectly safe while waiting in case the right adopter is out there.
