BCPH would like to introduce this year’s Fall Senior Pet, Finnegan. He is a 10 year old Labrador Mix. The Coon Family rescued him at 4 months of age and he has been a big part of their family ever since. He just so happens to be a mountain climber! Finnegan has climbed every mountain in the Sierras hundreds of times. He also went to registered therapy school and was a regular visitor at some local hospitals and convalescent homes. When he wasn’t climbing mountains or visiting friends, he spent many days alongside his dad instructing Sacramento firefighters.

Finnegan has been a long time patient of Dr. Raymond and BCPH. He has been participating in our Senior Care Program for the last few annual checkups. Dr. Raymond has been able to monitor his lab work and help maintain that great shape of his! We did come across a very large, thankfully benign tumor on his spleen last year. Dr. Raymond removed his spleen and he recovered just fine, other than missing a few climbs. We recently did his annual checkup and he participated in the Senior Care Level One Program. Dr. Raymond found a silent urinary tract infection that luckily cleared up just fine with antibiotics. We were glad to find it before it could harm his kidneys.

Finnegan is a very strong and active senior. BCPH is so proud to know him and The Coon Family. We are happy to be a part of Finnegan’s golden years and we hope to help him continue to climb mountains!
