Benny was found on the streets and was on a list to be euthanized before he was pulled by a local rescue. Benny came to the rescue with untreated ear infections for at least 4 years. Inside the ear canal was filled with calcification (hard as bone) and will require reconstruction surgery so he can heal. Unfortunately, he will remain deaf in one ear. In addition, Benny had other physical maladies including 2 drainage sites on the side of face oozing pus and blood, and huge pocket of abscesses in his neck area.His salivary gland and duct are infected and oozing internally. Benny also needs a digit on his foot amputated as well as anal fissures. The initial surgery addressed the calcification in his ear. He did loose his ear flap, but is healing nicely. All other issues will need to be addressed down the road after he heals from his ear surgery. We provided a $1000 grant, but this is just a drop in the bucket for the amount of veterinary care Benny has received to date, not including his future surgeries.
