Pet of the Month: November 2010
“Isabella” Paxton – Shih Tzu
Who could resist a face like this? Isabella presented to Rocky Mountain Veterinary Neurology for further assessment of collapse, apnea and seizures. An acute onset was described with immediate professional veterinary attention given. Despite being very ill, Isabella shared her love for people and enthusiasm to please others from the moment she entered our hospital. Isabella underwent laboratory, magnetic resonance imaging and cerebrospinal fluid testing to allow her neurological condition to be diagnosed and treated. We are happy to say that Isabella is recovering nicely at home. Her smile never stops. It is infectious. It isn’t often we are blessed with such a large personality from such a small body!
