MILEY – A1079959
Safe - 9-1-2016 Brooklyn
*** SAFE 09/01/16 *** MIGHTY MILEY IS IN NEED OF ASSISTANCE!! MILEY was adopted from the ACC a month ago….and started having seizures. She was brought to the adopter’s vet where they said she also had ringworm (she does not have ringworm now, so she was either treated or never had it).
She had a seizure at the ACC when she was returned and needs a competent vet check to determine the frequency of her epilepsy and what medication she would need for her condition.
MILEY is only 4 months old and very active (she doesn’t know she’s epileptic) …..She also got along great with the adopter’s five year old. She is already SPAYED and BEGINNER rated. When her family brought her to the shelter….”In carrier Miley was playing putting her paws out”…..MILEY’S SEIZURES ARE TREATABLE & NOT A DEATH SENTENCE!!
Please help this little lady lead the happy life that she was destined to!! Apply to to FOSTER or ADOPT her now….email [email protected] if you need assistance!!
