Meet Connie! Connie came to GCCR over 4 months ago very thin, balding hair, scabbed skin and diarrhea. She was a classic sign of EPI (Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency) in which she tested positive she was started on enzymes in which she will need the rest of her life as well as Cobalamin injections. Although her stool improved quickly, her skin did not. Many diet, environmental and supplemental changes proved of no help, the itching, bleeding and scabs continued. After testing for allergens/sensitivities via NUTRISCAN with Dr Dodds, it has been determined she must be on a very restricted raw diet of only beef or lamb and the only carbohydrate of chickpea. Connie has been on this diet and it shown to work wonders! She is also receiving acupuncture and chiropractic. Housebreaking has been a challenge. After years in a commercial kennel, Connie just does not seem to mind soiling her bedding. Although Connie likes to sit and sleep with her human, she is still fearful of sudden moves and coming close. She lives with other dogs and cats but does get a possessive of high value chews, ie cow hooves and antlers. Like most spaniels, Connie loves to be outside and hunt, nose to the ground and she even points! A secure fenced yard is a must as her desire to run is high and recall not reliable. Connie does have a voice and uses it often to let her wants be known. The ideal home would be one with a patient yet confident pack leader and home most hours. Could Connie be the one for you?
