FEB 2ND, 2013. We have some sad news about this amazing dog. Chelsea appears “happy” 99.9% of the time but just recently started coughing (not kennel cough) so we had an x‑ray done and it appears her heart is enlarged and she has a small amount of fluid in her lungs. Chelsea is in the beginning stage of congestive heart failure. Poor girl BUT we caught it early and she can live happily for a few years. She is on a light dose of diuretics and a heart medication that will support/strengthen her cardiac functions. She is happy, affectionate and a pleasure to have in our lives. We know this will narrow down her chances of finding a suitable home but we know there is a home out there for her that will care for her until the end. We would place Chelsea in a palliative home for her final years. She is WORTH it in more ways than we can express. The love and life she brings to the home is unconditional.…she is a TREASURE!
If you would like to help us by making a donation towards Chelsea’s vet bill we would be forever grateful! No amount is too small. Donations can be made by clicking the link below which will take you to our paypal account. Donations can also be made directly to our vet.
