FROM THERE CHRIS WAS ABLE TO TAKE HIM TO A VET FOR A FULL EVALUATION.
Chris says: “Firstly his claws were very ingrown and infected, so they trimmed them as far back as they could and soaked his paws in iodine to work on the infection. His ears were also infected, so while he was mildly sedated they thoroughly cleaned them and put medicine in them… he has dental issues, only has 6 teeth left and will need future dental work, he also has conjunctivitis hence the eye drops. They gave him an antibiotic shot and he’s congested too so we will be starting him on meds for that.”
It’s a mystery how he ended up on the streets, either he was dumped by his owner or the family of his owner after he/she passed away or he escaped? The vet guesstimated his age to be between 8 and 10 years old, thanks to the help of Chris and the St Francis Society Animal Rescue, he is now with a caring foster parent, luckily for him, the second half of his life will be lived in luxury surrounded by people who love him!
