Chato – December 28th, 2022

7/26/22 – Please welcome Chato! Chato’s owner dropped him off at the shelter because he no longer had time for him. He told the shelter staff he was 12 ½ years old but we have a hard time believing that. We are not sure why he lied about him but it doesn’t matter. Our vet feels like he is more like 3 years old. We will move forward with surgery soon. He does have an ear infection and he has been diagnosed with dry eye.

8/11/22 – Chato had surgery today and all went well. He was neutered, had entropion surgery on his eye lids, he had his palate shortened, his saccules removed and his nares widened.

8/26/22 – Chato had a recheck for his ear infection today. He still has yeast in his ears so we are going to try a different medication. He will see the vet again in three weeks for a recheck.

9/10/22 – Chato has been adopted.  Congrats Chato and Ellis family!


December 28, 2022 – Chato crossed over the Rainbow Bridge today.  Please keep his family in your thoughts. Rest In Peace Chato
