Meet Bel-monti

Bel-monti was found wandering the streets by someone who took her to the local Pound. The pound Vet started pain relief and antibiotics to combat her severe flea infestation which resulted in loss of hair from her shoulders back to her tail.

Bel-monti is a friendly happy girl despite her ordeal and obviously feeling better now that she is being treated for her condition. She weighs 6.35kg, is energetic, loves her toys and is people and dog friendly and walks well on the lead.

Bel-monti's skin and hair condition will take some time to repair, so she will not be available for adoption until approximately mid-late January 2020.
Following Vet Check it is deemed necessary to remove some nasty looking lumps which may or may not be cancerous, at the same time as spaying and repairing Bel-monti's hernia which has now been carried out. The biopsy results were negative, stitches are out but that persistent allergy is still there.

**For less side-effects, the new owner should consider either committment to an elimination diet or a monthly injection which could work out as much as $150/month.

**Serious adoptees only

Bel-monti was adopted on 02 February 2020 after 1 month in foster care
