McGraw is now down to 108 pounds! He is fighting fit and doing such a fantastic job! When he had his initial wellness check at the vet he was 117 pounds. The vet said he tested negative for heartworm and McGraw is totally up to date on his vaccinations. Also he does have some arthritis in his hips and his knees, but the weight loss should help with improving his mobility. On another visit to the vet he did have his teeth cleaned. McGraw was a very cool critter at the vet and incredibly well behaved. The vet said overall that McGraw is a very healthy boy and just needs to lose weight.
His new nickname is “Mellow McGraw” because when we go out to the pet store everyone says, “He is so mellow and sweet!” McGraw even ran into another Golden at the store and was very polite and friendly.
