Ghost is an 11-month-old Great Pyrenees who came into our rescue program. He could not see and walked blindly into things; he continually was bumping into things. He was crying in pain and would not open his eyes. We rushed him to our veterinarian and he is now being treated for ulcerations on the corneas of his eyes. We also discovered a huge mass on his head and we had that surgically removed while he was still under anesthesia for neutering. Today he went back for a recheck of his eyes and surgery sites. He will be made available for adoption when his eyes have healed and the veterinarian thinks he’s well enough to adopt. Ghost came into rescue filthy, matted, and full of thorns, foxtails, and other debris. He has since had a day of clipping and grooming and looks and smells wonderful! Thank you so much for helping us help him.
