Doxie Puppy


We rescued this little guy from a high kill shelter. He was purchased as a Christmas present, but when he lost his hair his family turned him into animal control. The hair loss is caused by demodex, a highly treatable condition. During his exam the vet noticed a heart murmur - a grade 5 out of 6. In a young dog this is very bad news. He was brought to the cardilogy department at LSU to confirm the grade and determine a cause. He has a deformed valve leading to increased pressure in the heart. This is a life threatening condition. He is currently on beta blockers. Once his demodex and secondary skin infections are cured the vets will determine when he can undergo surgery.
