Henri Needs Cataract Surgery
By Susan Rosenberg, Director of International Animal Programs
Someone found little Henri abandoned in an apartment in Georgia. It seems his owners had moved out and left him to fend for himself. Luckily, Henri found his way to Homeward Bound Adoptions CT. After a good grooming and a lot of TLC, he was brought to an adoption event in CT but sadly, was overlooked likely due to his disability. Henri was brought to a foster home and evaluated at Homeward Bound Adoptions CT veterinarian.
Henri requires cataract surgery for which the veterinarian says he is a good candidate. He’s had his initial consultation with nothing abnormal coming up. This little guy was a trooper through all of the tests.
Next, he’ll have a preoperative appointment where he would get an ultrasound of his eyes to make sure there were no complications that would hinder success.
Soon after the ultrasound appointment, he will have cataract surgery. He will require multiple daily eye drops for a few months after the operation, as well as follow up visits. Because Henry had heartworm disease when he came into the rescue for which he’s received treatment, he may also need radiographs to ensure there is no lingering evidence of this disease.
Henri’s eyesight should immediately restore after the surgery. I’ll bet that he’ll find a home at the next adoption event! He will need eye drops once a day for the rest of his life, a small price to pay for a loving companion. Please click and share the link below to help little Henri see again. This little sweetheart deserves the best life possible.
