Sophie is honored to have been selected as Pet of the Month!
From the time we adopted her at 5 months old, she has been a pistol. At 12 years old, she’s still a pistol! She is just as attentive, spunky and playful as she was as a puppy.
Sophie is the self-proclaimed “Princess” of the Braun family. She loves (and commands) attention 99% of the time. She is happiest when she is at home with her family and sitting on the pool deck overlooking her Kingdom! Her favorite activities include going for long walks and stealing mom & dad’s shoes. (if they’re watching TV and not paying attention to her.)
Sophie has always been a picky eater & thin and earlier this year, Dr. Taylor performed some routine bloodwork and it showed that she was anemic. He referred Sophie to see an internist at AVS. An ultrasound exposed masses in her spleen and she needed to have her spleen removed. In addition, she had GI biopsies and was diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowel Disease. She’s has been treated with a low dose of prednisone and is now eating a human grade food.
Currently, she’s doing great, and back to being a pistol!!
