Meet Benji!! Benji needs a loving home, medical care, and a whole lot of TLC. At 14 years old, it’s past time little Benji started living the good life. Benji has a lot of mats, over grown nails, and a chronic ear condition that will all need to be addressed. Benji’s eyes are also injured, likely due to him scratching from his ear irritation. Benji has been quite aggressive, but is in a considerable amount of pain, which may be affecting his behavior. Please help give this old man the life he deserves. Pull from MACC today!!
VERY NERVOUS, BARKING, GROWLING, TRY TO BITE
INJURED EYES; EYES LOOKS RED AND BLINDed from scracthing with long nails
SEVERE EAR INFECTION with growths in ears from irritation, PAINFUL EARS AND SCRATCHING EARS
MATTED COAT ALLOVER- needs grooming
VERY LONG NAILS – need to be cut under grooming anesthesia
abd palp wnl
Last night given:
-0.5CC BUPRENORPHINE INJ then
-TRAMADOL and clavamox – this AM discontinued
-ERYTHROMYCIN OPH OU
WIth behavior and pain level this AM:
Sedation needed for mat clip down, nail trim and ear cleaning
Buprinex SR 0.1cc SC
Convenia 0.6 cc good for 7 -10 d
suspect age vastly overestimatedhard to examine mouth but seems less than 5 yo.
Also suspect eye disease is untreated KCS, not secondary to nails
suspect behavior is pain and blindness combined.
bilateral enucleation would probably improve temperment
d/c’d oral meds., gave 0.2mg/kg metacam, will sedate and shave down, groom, clean ears.
medical problems are fixable: good prognosis , recc bilateral enucleation
behavior may be challenging, but with increased comfort may do well
post grooming: AS very stenotic.
TECA would be appropriate
sedated with ttdex to groom
shaved down, trimmed long nails, cleaned ears
seems more comfortable today after shave down
needs new hope placement
