Meet Caesar, a 4 year old male who for the last 3 1/2 years has been medically neglected. He received regular vet care up through six months of age when the Vet notes indicate “DECLINED CARE”. On January 27, 2007 Caesar was diagnosed with Cherry Eye, Dry eye, conjunctivitis, bilateral ear infections and cryptorchidism. The owner declined all care except vaccinations and Caesar never went back.
Fast forward to 10/2010: Caesar checks in to the local animal shelter, he was picked up as a stray.
12/14/2010: Caesar was found on the side of the road, he had been hit by car. He had a seizure during transport to the vet. He was released to owner after 2 days.
1/21/2011: AGAIN a guest at the local animal shelter>>>STRAY AGAIN!!!!!!! This time the owner signs Caesar (formerly known as Meatball) over to animal control. Caesar is a sweet young man, very well mannered and rides very well in the car. He is white, but you wouldn’t be able to tell that easily, his coat is so clay stained it will take several whitening baths to get the stains out. His eyes are swollen, infected and dry. His ears are blocked from chronic untreated infection, he is now hearing impaired. Hoping we’ll get some hearing back with proper treatment. Caesar’s now resting at our vet and about to begin the journey back to health. Welcome to the rest of you life, Caesar. Hope you’re ready for the good life!!!!
Update 3/15/2011: Caesar has been at our vets for the last several weeks undergoing treatment of a terrible lung infection and very stubborn eye infection. He was finally able to undergo abdominal exploration and removal of abdominal testicles and cherry eye repair. He was to be transferred to his foster home this weekend (3/12) but it appears that his abdominal wound has become infected. Caesar will have to stay at the vet for several more days to ensure there is no further disruption of his incision. An abdominal wound that becomes infected and ruptures could be fatal to poor Caesar. We are being very cautious to ensure that does not happen.
December 25, 2016: Bobby passed away unexpectedly today. What a sad Christmas Day for his family. But we are happy that he got to spend five years with them knowing what love was. Please keep his family in your thoughts.
Rest In Peace Bobby
Big Papa and Family
