Smudge was picked up as a stray by Dekalb County with a severe rectal prolapse. Poor Smudge has had 4 anal prolapse repair surgeries while at Dekalb, although none of them have held. The vets at Dekalb feared he was aseptic and recommended he likely needs a coloplexy. Not only does Smudge need a more extensive surgical repair for his rectal prolapse, this poor little fella is Heartworm Positive.
Smudge is our kinda guy! Despite his medical condition, Smudge is a sweet, silly boy who just wants a little love. Luckily, his final purse-string held so his prolapse has been repaired and healed! Smudge had his heartworm treatment in May 2016 and will be on restricted activity for the next few months while his body is battling the heartworms.
