Hero has has a rectal hernia, which we plan to surgically repair. He also has a lump on his head that will be removed and biopsied. He has been started on antibiotics to get him ready for the multiple procedures to be done all at the same time including his neuter. As you can see, Hero also has a lingering eye infection in his right eye and an active ulceration in his left. Eye ulcers, scratches, tears in the cornea are common in boxers so we are hopeful his eyes will heal, but we are unsure if there will be permanent vision loss. We will continue to monitor his health closely and he has a follow-up vet appointment on Monday. We got a lot accomplished on day 1 and have a plan in place! Despite all the testing and poking and prodding this boy went through today..... he is the biggest sweetheart and is handling it all like the champ that he is! Welcome HERO to the rescue!
There will be significant medical expenses for Hero and if you would like to donate to help with his care and recovery you can do so through our paypal giving fund.
Hero also has an Amazon Wish List that can be found at: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/ls/ref=cm_gln_d_aw…
