This is not so little Lucy.
Lucy is around 2 years old and was abandoned at the PDSA in Leeds.
Lucy had only been with us a few days and within this time we noticed that she was having significant worsening breathing difficulties.
we took Lucy back to the vets and despite her having a grade 5 heart murmur she was sedated, had xrays and an ultrasound.
These revealed that she had a large amount of free fluid on her chest and the vets managed to drain over a litre from her.
Lucy had a condition called Hypotrophic Cardiomyopathy.
Whilst the long term prognosis wasn’t good Lucy was on a cocktail of medications everyday to ensure she had quality and function in her life.
Sadly Lucy fell asleep in her bed on Sunday night and never woke up.
Rest in Peace Lucy, sleep tight.
