Dollie died of complications of old age. It is a sad time here at Frolic Farm. I will always remember how sweet she was when she was young.
Dollie was off her feed, but still drinking so I thought it wasn’t too serious. It looked like the same thing she had a couple of years ago, coccidiosis, so I treated her with Sulfanox.
