Bowman came to us from a shelter where he landed as a stray. He was heartworm-positive, stage 3, but this sweet handsome boy has completed his recovery from heartworm thanks to his loving foster home. Bowman is vision-impaired and did visit an eye specialist, and at their recommendation had his left eye removed at the time of his neuter. He’s also had a few lumps removed. He’s been through so much in the past few months, but he remains the sweet, affectionate golden boy he is. Bowman went to his foster home after his surgeries and did well. Though he doesn’t know many commands, his foster family is working with him. He learned his way around the house and did pretty well. Unfortunately, the eye specialist did mention that Bowman’s other eye has cataracts and may eventually have to be removed as well. He is being treated with medications and supplements to support his eye. BUT the good news is that his foster family loved him in spite of all his medical issues and adopted him.

Total charges for just Bowman: $3,456.40. Again we thank you for your support.
