This poor baby was found a few days ago by a friend in their neighborhood. When found, he was having problems breathing, had open wounds, bones sticking out, and a runny nose.

When we first found him.

After two extensive visits in 19 hours, we got some info. He had another round of blood work done and his white blood cells were more than 4 times higher than the expected and than the normal count. He also has high proteins and globulins which indicate chronic infection. There was some fluid in the lungs which is causing him to have a really hard time breathing - he is having breathing treatments to help cure some of those issues so we hope that helps. He has cataracts in BOTH eyes. Severe nasal discharge and congestion on both sides - this could be infection, a polyp, or cancer. He also has discharge from the left eye. He has a balding spot on his forearm which is due to him constantly pawing at his face. 

Staying strong.

Finally able to leave the vet's office.

Finally able to leave the vet's office.

He was able to leave the vet after a couple of days of breathing treatments, IV fluids, and appetite stimulants. He still isn't eating yet but we're hoping that his congestion has cleared up enough to where eating becomes of interest. We've sent a copy of his last blood panel to the lab so they can tell us specifically what might be causing his high levels of white blood cells. If we don't see a change in appetite soon, we will be back to the vet and he will have to be fed through a feeding tube, which of course we don't want! But we will do what we have to to give this handsome the comfort he deserves.

The vet visits have totaled close to $1500; we are in desperate need of donations. We are 1000% non-profit so all donations are tax-deductible and will go towards helping Frank and others like him. You can make donations through the 'Donate' button on the bottom of the page or you can even call Island Pet Hospital at (702) 645-7387 and tell them you would like to contribute to Frank's bill. Every little bit helps! Stay tuned for more updates as we go through this journey with Frank.
