Chewie (Chewbacca) was found roaming the streets in horrible shape and taken to a local shelter. They sent an URGENT plea, and we rushed him to the vet. The first step was to sedate him and carefully shave his coat. Severe matts caused skin sores and extreme discomfort and pain. He also appeared to have serious dental disease, eye issues and more. Obviously, he has not been cared for in a very long time!
Chewie’s list of medical issues was extensive…sores from urine and mat burns, dental disease, low thyroid, elevated white count, corneal eye issues, parasites, and more. The poor guy had 10 rotten teeth extracted! We do not know how he survived on the street in this condition!
Talk about a transformation!! Look at this cutie pie now! He is living the life of luxury with his new mom who treats him like a star!
