Kyleigh Update

KYLEIGH - JULY 16, 2011



Kyleigh is doing wonderfully!  She is completely transitioned over to a much better food (Taste of the Wild - which is what I feed my crew) and loving it.

The tape worms appear to be a thing of the past.  I didn't see any again the day after I treated her with Drontal.  She'll be retreated again in a month, and then will have a fecal exam to make sure all is done.

She is still quite thin, but the worms have only just left her system a week ago.  The weight needs to come on slowly and safely.

It appears that some fur is beginning to show up on her bald patches - still hard to tell at the moment but again, with the worms gone and her diet improved, we should begin to see a difference.

I also believe she's getting ready to come into season - once that's behind her and she's at a good weight, she'll be spayed.

Kyleigh has gained a lot of confidence in the few short weeks she has been here.  She is a happy, exuberant love bug, and she's learning to play with toys (on her own, and tugging with Brosa).  She sits nicely and waits for her meals (meaning she will sit and wait after I've placed her bowl on the floor, until I give her the "okay").  She's so food motivated, which is going to be great for the training to come, but she'll also have to learn various commands will not always come with a food reward (right now, she sits for meals and treats, but not because I ask her to when empty-handed).  She's a smart girl so I know that will come in time.
