Kirby’s New Family

Kirby’s New Family kirby adoption photo 2017 Please join us in congratulating this lucky boy on his forever family!  It's so heartwarming to have folks step up to care for and love cavaliers who need long-term medicines and specialized veterinary care.  This sweet pup now has a 4-pawed brother and an active family of his very own. We have to say thanks again to all who contributed to his surgery fund and shared his story.  We could not have done it without each and every one of you. <3

Kirby Fundraising 2017
Kirby is a 5-month old puppy who has Severe Pulmonic Stenosis. As a result of this congenital condition, his pulmonary valve is narrowed and restricting blood flow in his heart. Kirby currently has a grade 5 heart murmur and extremely high pressures in his heart. Since his case is severe, Kirby needs a balloon valvuloplasty to allow him a chance at a normal life. The estimated cost for his surgery is $3200-$4500, and he will need at least two follow-up cardiac workups (consult, echocardiogram, and CBC at $750 each).
We are working to get Kirby scheduled into surgery, as the sooner this procedure is done, the less damage there is to his heart. If you can help us by contributing to his surgical fund, please visit http://CavalierAlliance.org/donate or send via paypal (friends and family option) to CavalierHelp@CavalierAlliance.org. If you would like to get more involved in fundraising for Kirby, or any of the pups in our program, pleasegive our office a call at 978-254-1005. There are many ways to help including Paint Nights, other local fundraisers, auction donations, iGive for shopping, to name a few. Auction details will be posted on Facebook.com/CavalierAllianceFundraising. No contribution is too small and we greatly appreciate all of your support!

Poppy’s Cardiology Recheck

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.
