Max – Update!

You may remember us introducing you to little Max.  He’s a 14 year old senior guy.  He came to Russell Rescue not long ago.  His owner could not take care of him any longer due to her health.  Max was well loved for many years.  Max has settled into his foster home and is doing pretty well.  He does have an eye infection in his right eye that seems to be happening on both eyes now instead of just the one.  There is a mature cataract in the right eye.  Max went to the vet this past week and got a different ointment and a new antibiotic to see if they will help.  The vet ran some tests and the pressures in his eyes are good, and he has good tear production, but the right eye has a corneal defect/superficial ulcer in the center.  Max also has a skin infection on his scrotum that the vet is treating with oral antibiotics and a medication for the inflammation.  He also got a medicated shampoo that his foster mom will use on him twice a week.  Max had some blood work done and all his important organs are in good condition, so that’s great news!  We are hoping for improvement in a couple of days with the new meds.  Max is still happy and easy going and he’s eating and sleeping well.  He also enjoys the company of his roommates!  Stay tuned for more updates on our little senior guy! 

Max will be available for adoption soon.  Watch for his post, including his adoption requirements, here on our website.  Anyone interested in adopting Max can apply here.  We don’t ship our dogs, so his adopter will need to travel to Pennsylvania to get him.
