The Heart of the Matter

Poor little Mdina, I have been concerned for her for a few weeks as she’s not developing as she should be.  She is still only the size of an  8 month old cria, even though she is now 15 months old.  I have been monitoring what she’s eating how she looks and her general well being but this week, I decided to get the vet to have a look at her.  She’s had blood tests, ultra sound, injections and investigations.  That is why the front of her neck has been shaved.

At one point it was thought Mdina might need a blood transfusion and the lovely Juno inadvertently volunteered.  Her blood was taken too and she was so beautifully behaved throughout.

It has been discovered that she has a heart murmur and arrhythmia.  This morning, she too went to the Vet Hospital in Cambridge and I will update you as I know more.

Many of you will have made the Mdina Cardigan and seen her little biography card, so if you have time, send up a little prayer…
