Meet Remy, a beautiful, red, smooth-haired mini dachshund who is cared for by proud parents Sara and Kevin Lind.
Remy first came to VCA San Francisco Veterinary Specialists in June 2010, suffering from back pain and having difficulty walking. Our neurologist, David Geiger, DVM, performed two successful disc surgeries and still works with Remy’s guardians on a supervised schedule of anti-epilepsy medication.
We’re thrilled that Remy’s treatment has allowed her to enjoy her two favorite activities: playing and eating (more on these pursuits below).
From Remy’s loving parents:
Remy’s name was inspired by her coat, which is the color of Cognac. She is 6 years old and a very snuggly, loving pup. She is a classic dachshund in that she loves to burrow and create a warm den for napping, whether under covers, in a pile of hot laundry or in a lap.
She is a fan of San Francisco Giants baseball and also loves football. Her love of football is mainly because that means people will be sitting still, watching the television and providing hours of companionship at home – we think. When it is time for her to be sporting, she likes to play with “Hedgie,” her plush hedgehog, and she occasionally brings other little stuffed animals into the mix (penguin, wombat, pheasant, monkey).
Her other favorite activity is eating: chewing a tasty bone, the sacred morning and evening kibble time, or a special treat of steamed broccoli. Yes, she honestly loves broccoli. We work hard to keep her a mini despite her love of food. She works hard to teach us a daily lesson in love and patience and good humor.
The VCA SFVS staff has been terrific with care and follow-up, and we trust them completely with our “fur baby,” as we call Remy.
We’re honored to count Remy as a patient, and we appreciate the trust Sara and Kevin have placed in us to care for their beloved Remy.
P.S. If you’re wondering why the photos of Remy are so fantastic, it is because her mom is a professional photographer. To see more of her work, visit: http://www.sarashoemakerlind.com/.
