Professor – February 28th, 2019

7/11/18:  Please welcome Professor!  He was picked up by Fayette County Animal Control as a stray and when no one came looking for him he joined GEBR.  He was completely shut down, would not even look at the shelter staff or stand up with we when to visit him.  He is covered in fleas, he has a horrible skin infection, an ear infection, an eye infection and untreated dry eye.  He needs cherry eye surgery, entropion surgery, mass removal, a teeth cleaning and a few decayed teeth extracted.  We also did food and environmental allergy testing and we are waiting on biopsy results on the mass that was removed.

He is eight years old.  He likes dogs and children but he does not care for cats.

Update 7/16/18:  Professor is already feeling and looking better.  He is getting used to the good life.  His vision seems a bit diminished from years of untreated dry eye.

Update 7/26/18: Professor had his surgery today and all went well.

Update 10/22/18:  Professor had a visit with the dermatologist so we can focus on getting his skin and ears cleared up.  He is allergic to some foods and a lot of things in the environment!  We are doing a food trial, and started new medications for his skin and ears. His vision is getting better on prescription eye drops and eye lubricant.  He ear canals are pretty blocked at the moment so we will be working closing with the dermatologist to get them cleared up.  He is loving life in his foster home with his four foster brothers and sisters.

Update 2/11/19: Professor has been seeing the dermatologist every few weeks while we try to get his skin and ear infections under control.  He will be put under anesthesia to have a deep cleaning of his ears.

February 28th, 2019:  Professor crossed over the rainbow bridge today.  Please keep his foster family in your thoughts.
