From the Foster:

These girls are just amazing. You would not know they are seniors. They both love being outside, short walks & a few naps during the day and just being near their human. They would love to sleep with you. They love treats & doggy ice cream.

These spunky girls will make you laugh. Frida is a bit shy & loves her ears scratched.

Patches loves people and loves belly rubs. They both like short walks, dog parks and all your love & attention

They both would like someone who is home most days as they get pretty lonely.

Frida -
Hello, I arrived at Secondhand Hounds with some medical issues that included limping of my rear limbs, a heart murmur and kidney issues. It was determined that I have
Grade 3/6 left side and Gr 2/6 right side systolic cardiac murmur,
arly chronic kidney disease/protein losing nephropathy,

ataxia/weakness of my rear limbs and immature cataracts. Due to these medical conditions, it is important that my future adopter is aware that the SHH vet team recommends

chest x-rays, chemistry panel, monitor calcium levels and blood pressure checks every 3 months. This may eventually be extended to every 6 months based on my results and the opinions of my future veterinarian. I will also need to be on a

kidney sensitive diet and medication lifelong. My future veterinarian should also continue to monitor the weakness in my real limbs.

Patches - Hello, I arrived at Secondhand Hounds with some medical issues that included arthritic hips, an enlarged heart
and s

lightly elevated UPC levels. I am currently on medication for my hips and the

SHH vet team recommends I continue to manage this with my future veterinarian. My heart is causing no clinical impairment at this time but any further radiographs or echocardiograms will be at my adopters expense. My heart, along with my UPC levels, should also be monitored with my future veterinarian.
