I had Happy at the military vet on post the other day for her Bordetella vaccination. Her weight is up a bit from 40 to 41.3 lbs. Since her third heat, I've noticed her ribs and hips are less prominent under her fluff. She's been eating the same, so I assume the weight gain is due to hormones and maturity. In my opinion, her current weight feels right. Everything else checked out great.
Anyway, we were also there for a surgical consult since Happy still needs to be spayed. I told them I wanted to talk about a gastropexy when I made the appointment. Unfortunately, the doctor got covid and was unable to make the appointment. The doctor happens to be the facility commander, and as a Colonel, probably has a ton of experience. The staff told me she was eager to meet us and very much wanted to do the surgery. COL Doctor will use Happy surgery as a training opportunity for two new doctors. I was assured the COL will do the surgery with the other two there to observe. Waiting for the doctor to recover from her illness. I should know more soon. Just thought I'd share.
