Her blood tests have come back as normal even when we thought she was 10 so they are really good for a 13 year old. She is now being weaned off the steroid tablets which were prescribed to help with her ear problems and we hope that she will soon be much better.
Because of her ongoing ear problems and now a suspicious lump whose biopsy is inconclusive, we have to wait until the vets at the hospital decide whether to remove the lump once the Covid 19 lock down is over or to leave it now we know her real age, but we are putting this lovely Border Collie on hold until she is pronounced fit to go. We will contact everyone again once we have the all clear from her veterinary surgeon.
She is a small border collie who is a little overweight and is unsure about some dogs she meets. Marlin came to the branch to find a new family via one of our RSPCA inspectors as her previous owner is ill (not with Covid 19).
We are looking for a quieter home for Marlin, with a garden where she can play fetch and one where her new family will take her to new places and help her to enjoy life.
