Louisiana Louie had his veterinary visit today with Dr. Jim at Wolf River Veterinary Clinic in New London, WI. Sue reported that Louie had an x-ray which showed a very slight enlargement of his heart on one side. He was not anemic and weighed 52 pounds. He will now begin a course of Doxycycline as well as a low dose prednisone for the short-term, and a heartworm pill each month—hopefully he will be negative in a year and a half.When this cutie is adopted out, his forever family will need to continue with the heartworm regimen. We estimate his age to be about 18 months. Patti mentioned that Louie was on excellent behavior. He took the time to kiss a 7 year-old boy hello, and didn’t seem to mind the kitties running around the clinic. AGAIN, his primary descriptor is “sweet”. Perhaps we end up shortening “Louisiana Louie” to “Sweet Lou”?!
