Poppy’s Cardiology Recheck Poppy Outside Easter   Poppy’s cardiology recheck this week was great! There were no signs of heart failure and though her heart is still a bit enlarged (typical at this point), the team is hopeful it will continue to resolve (remodel). We will know more in another 8 -10 weeks. Best news of all? She's cleared for normal puppy activities and play. 

Aurora’s Friday the 13th Update

Aurora Dental "Well here I am and Friday the 13th was a lucky day for me! The day started out pretty lousy because I got up thismorning and GOT NO BREAKFAST - NOTHING.Things started to look up when my harness came out and I knew I was going for a car ride. We went to my special doctor and everyone made a big fuss over me. I don't remember much after that but when I woke up they told me I had 17 teeth to leave for the Tooth Fairy tonight. The Landlord says I'm going to break the Tooth Fairy's bank, but my foster mother says Doggie Tooth Fairies leave treats, not money - am I lucky or what?! I'm going back to my doctor in 2 weeks to have a check up on my mouth. This is my picture from just a few minutes ago. You can't tell that my mouth is a little emptier can you?" (Written by Aurora with a bit of help from her foster mom!)

She struggled with pneumonia, severe dental disease, and was basically frozen in place due to her blindness.   Her cataracts were almost 1/2" thick. In this early photo you can see the cataracts on her eyes: Honey Photo with Cataracts     And just look at the post-surgical difference: 12391046_1024543734273283_7579295978514419403_n   And the best part of all?  After two days of hospitalization, she returns to her foster home and sees her four-legged buddies for the very first time.  Her tail hasn't stopped wagging!

Welcome Lucy & Zoey

These two sweet pups came to the Cavalier Alliance as a transfer from another group for specialist care.  Their initial vet did a great job of getting them stabilized and we will continue that care.  Lucy has ulcers on her right eye that need reviewed by a specialist and Zoey will need help with a back leg that keeps slipping out of place. lucy 2015Zoey 2015

Duncan’s Recovery Continues

Duncan’s Recovery Continues Duncan, our long-term foster boy who has been struggling with Cushing's disease, is finally on the mend. His recovery is progressing well and our vets tell us that most pups with this disease take 3 - 6 months to stabilize. Since joining our program, this sweet Cavalier King Charles Spaniel has had four ACTH tests to ascertain his cortisol levels and had his medicines adjusted to stabilize him. Due to the generosity of our donors, he has also had a much-needed dental, with extractions, to allow his gum disease to heal.  His tail was also amputated - only part-way - a complication of his untreated Cushing's disease. Now his skin is healing, his fur is growing back and he loves to wander the garden. Take a look at his latest home movie!   Duncan is ready for adoption and a more detailed overview is posted on our Rescue page. At this time, he is taking a daily dose of Trilosane to manage his Cushing's disease and will be on it for the rest of his life. If you would like to contribute to Duncan's on-going care, please consider sending a donation to our paypal account ( or consider sending a check to our address at: 64 Cedarwood Road, Boxborough, MA  01719.
