Dorothy was left in really bad shape in a backyard before a family member of a Wags and Walks employee helped save her. She had never been on a walk and she lived her whole life outside. She was having issues with her eye that was causing her obvious pain.
Dorothy was diagnosed with posterior ptosis, which means she has droopy eyelids that are causing her pain. She also has a heart murmur, which needs additional testing to determine how severe it is.
After a trip to the ophthalmologist for her eye, it was clear she needed corrective surgery. The surgery will help the eyelid come back down into place and secure it, so it doesn’t roll into the back of her head and continue to cause her pain.
She is scheduled to visit the vet to get her heart condition looked at.
Dorothy is a distinguished senior lady at ten years old, but she has learned what a “walk” is and gets so excited when she hears the jingle of the leash. Being a tripawd certainly doesn’t stop her! She enjoys being petted and is very affectionate with the people she bonds with.
