Meet Rasta

Rasta was surrendered by his owner, who had him since he was 8 weeks old, because the owner could not afford his medical expenses. Rasta has Aspergillois (a nasty fungal infection), 2 masses (benign) and allergies. A cat scan indicated significant damage to his nasal cavity, but the infection did not go through the plate leading to his brain. We provided an intra-nasal infusion of fungal medication, hence the lobotomy look. Rasta is much improved, but still has discharges from one eye and one nostril. He will probably be on special fungal medications long term. His fur is growing back and he is now a happy boy at his foster home.
