Loki needs a special Mum & Dad he is blinded in the right eye limited vision in the left. He was found crying on the side of the road in Kalyves (Crete) roasting in the midday sun his eyelids stuck together by pus. He had pneumonia, eye ulcerations, parasite overload, dehydration & was starved sadly his rescuer saw half a dozen people walk by him. We suspect he was thrown out of his litter either due the fact he is black or because he was sick. The condition he was in is indescribable but after antibiotics, nursing lots of care from his foster mummy Isobel (we were worried he would bark being brought up with puppies…)
This is an appeal on behalf of Lazarus (Larry) approximately 2 years of age rescued off the streets of Chania. Larry had extensive lacerations across his nose/sinuses, fractured jaw, left eye blind (detached optic nerve) all wounds contaminated with maggot infestation.
He required 3 operations to clean & close, remained with our Greek vet for many months before she asked us to take him in for aftercare & adoption. Sadly he developed a life threatening infection oozing & sneezing a bloody purulent green nasal discharge affecting his swallowing & breathing.
Readmitted for intravenous infusions, X-Rays & nasal swabs he tested positive for Pseudomonas & Proteus.[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=evFPXpEWBQY[/youtube]
Update 3rd April 2015:
Sadly Milo (as he turned out to be) was not putting on weight or playing, he was too short of breath, so today we did an xray and this showed his lungs where full of fluid, he was drowning of wet FIP, we did not bring him round from the anaesthetic and he peacefully slipped away.
The only consulation is that he did not starve to death by the roadside but was warm, fed and loved by his foster mum and us.
