UPDATE:  DEC 12, 2020 - 

Fonzie has been in foster care with a veterinarian who has been trying to determine why Fonzie sometimes chokes and coughs while eating. When he eats, the food seems to go up into his sinus cavities. After several diagnostic tests, it has been  determined that Fonzie has a soft tissue cleft palate and has extra small nostril openings.  Unfortunately, this is not the type of cleft palate that can be surgically corrected so it is going to be a life-long issue for Fonzie. It is possible that he can have surgery to widen the nostrils when he is older.  On the bright side, Fonzie doesn’t know he has a disability. As long as he has a dedicated person keeping an eye on his health and well-being, he will have a great life and his human will be richly rewarded with Fonzie’s effervescent personality and the cutest face, too!

Fonzie is a DLH, neutered male, tabby, DOB ~ 7-24-20

Fonzie was brought to our shelter after being found under a tractor all alone. He was so small and was just not thriving. Eventually, Fonzie was x-rayed to try to find out why he was doing so poorly, and it was discovered that he had a hole in his diaphragm the size of a golf ball. Fonzie had surgery to repair the hole and to put his intestines back where they belong.  It was noted that his right lung was underdeveloped which explains his wheezy breathing. Each day seems to brings more improvement as he heals from his surgery. Meanwhile, Fonzie is a happy little guy with a zest for life. He loves cuddling and playing with his toys. 

NOTE: All animals are spayed/neutered as soon as practical after arriving at our facility unless there is a medical issue that may cause a delay or they are too young to be spayed/neutered.
