Meet Indie, our Pismo Beach Veterinary Clinic Pet of the Week.
Indie is pet of the week for several reasons. First of all, she is an unusual breed, an Alaskan Klee Kai, so I thought you’d want to see her. This is basically a toy breed of a Husky, bred to be of house pet size but with the great coat, intelligence and energy of a husky. Indie is a petite 18 pounds.
Indie is also pet of the week because I wanted to share her story. Indie is diabetic and has another endocrine disorder called Cushings disease. Both of these diseases are serious and can greatly affect a pet’s quality of life if untreated. In addition, both disorders can lead to secondary problems such as bladder infections and blindness. However, because of her mom’s superb and diligent care (and maybe with a tiny bit of help from her doctors, nurses, and modern medicine), Indie is able to enjoy a good quality of life. Here are a couple pictures of her frolicking outside.
