Yesterday, Divinity went to the vet for her yearly checkup and shots. The vet said Divinity is very healthy, and that her heart and lungs are good.
After nine years as a puppy-mill mama, I always have in the back of my mind that something may crop-up from that many years of having puppies. Divinity’s foster mom estimated that in the nine years Divinity was in the puppy-mill, she probably had 60 puppies!
The only problem the vet found, was that Divinity has another ear infection. On the last visit three months ago, the vet said Divinity is prone to ear infections due to her ear canals being blocked by nodule growths from years of untreated ear-mite bites. I think I should count on having her ears checked 3-4 times each year. Now that I am aware of the time-frame, I can keep ahead of the problem.
