WARNING – GRAPHIC IMAGES BELOW
Casey is our newest medical needs rescue. He came to the shelter with a large maggot-infested wound to his hindquarters, an injured eye, bad teeth, and a strong will to live. The terrific shelter vet and staff cleaned his wound and started him on medication. Shelter management decided not to keep him, so we took him to the Avian and Exotic Clinic and got a treatment plan for him.
Casey is now well on his way to recovery. His wound is healing nicely, and has now been closed up, except for a drain. His eye is looking better, but will still need medication and watching for a few more weeks. The vet trimmed his molars and incisors under anesthesia, and hopefully that will be the last of his tooth issues. Casey has done his part by eating constantly to regain his weight, and by keeping a great attitude. He has been a very good boy through all of his wound cleanings and medications.
Wound first week.
We would like to raise $500 to cover Casey’s medical bills. To donate directly to our medical fund, please contact the Avian and Exotic Clinic and tell them the money is for Casey at Friendly Farms.
Wound second week – closed with drain.
Casey will be available for adoption after his neuter surgery, which we will schedule once his wound has finished healing. For more information about this amazing little boy, contact us here at Friendly Farms.
