Gigi is a 14 year old female Maltese. Gigi came to us following the passing of her elderly owner. When she came in was dreadfully matted, we had no choice but to shave her coat to make her feel much more comfortable. She has seen the vets as she is terribly underweight. The good news is that she is quite healthy for her age and just needs additional meals to get her weight back on.
Gigi does have cataracts, she has some sight in one eye, given her age it is not viable to operate on her. She also has luxating patella’s, again due to her age it would be unfair to try and put her through surgery. She is quite happy and able to get around the house and garden with ease. Once she has mapped the area Gigi copes very well. We have run full blood tests as a precaution and they have all come back clear – her heart, kidneys, etc are all working well. She only has one tooth so a softer diet is needed for Gigi.
This little lady would suit someone who is around for most of the time and would like some company. Once she knows you she is happy to get on your lap and cuddle. It is terribly sad that poor Gigi is looking for a new home at her age but she is a really sweet and tiny little lady who will make someone very happy. She is currently on foster in Swanley Kent.
