Iza had a stroke
Iza Valentine (30) had a stroke in the wee hours of the night last night. She presented this morning dragging her left front leg and is slightly off balance. The vet found a small heart murmur and feels that some plaque broke away from a heart valve and caused the stroke.
At present time Iza is in ok spirits but very quiet. Iza will begin taking an aspirin once a day to help prevent future strokes but for now we will just have to wait and see what happens next.
Iza is California's 1985 broodmare of the year and dam of Fran's Valentine.
