Meet Sara Lee, our Pismo Beach Veterinary Clinic Pet of the Week!
Sara made pet of the week because at 20 1/2 years of age, she is one of our oldest patients and still going strong!
Sara was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism in 2009 and inflammatory bowel disease shortly thereafter. Despite her ailments which have been managed medically, her family (which includes a 16 year old, Cocker Spaniel sister!) feels she still lives a content cat life.
Sarah Lee is a poster child for preventative medicine, as her parents are diligent with regular checkups and annual blood screening. As a result, Sarah Lee’s ailments have been caught early and treated quickly and effectively. Cats are often the neglected members of the household because there is a misconception that they can “take care of themselves.” This diligent attention to Sarah Lee’s health on the part of her human parents is a huge part of her continued excellent health and a great example to cat owners everywhere!
