Please Help Save Wilbur’s Sight and Hearing

Update posted by Carol Young On Oct 24, 2019

Wilbur's eye has continued to improve, and the eye specialist confirmed that he will be able to keep it. Wilbur should have at least partial sight as well. And now that some time has passed since Wilbur was under anesthesia it is time to move forward with treatment of his ear. On November 14th Wilbur will see a veterinary dermatologist since the kind of ongoing and severe ear infection is often caused by allergies. Currently his ear has completely closed up and we know it must be very painful for him. We have been told that Wilbur may need surgical intervention because of the chronic nature of these infections but we will know more after the appointment on the 14th.

Wilbur met with the surgeon who examined his eye and determined that the eye may still be viable to save. In fact he was able to see some blood vessels that had not been there in previous exams. He did not want Wilbur to undergo another surgery so soon after the August 14th procedure. So Wilbur was given additional medication, a new large cone and instructions on how to treat the eye and he will go back to the surgeon at the end of the following week. Wilbur is still facing another surgical procedure in the near future so your continued support and sharing of this fundraiser is most appreciated.

On August 14th Wilbur went into surgery to receive a corneo conjunctival transposition (CCT) graft, which is a procedure to treat a deep cornial ulcer. It is done in order to save the eye. Wilbur's surgery went well and he was sent home at the end of the day with eye drops and instructions to care for him. Unfortunately a few days after surgery Wilbur started to have problems with his eye again, so he returned to the hospital to see a specialist. It was determined that the sutures did not hold so the grafting procedure was not successful. Wilbur will need to return to the hospital midweek at which time the surgeon will determine what procedure Wilbur will need, including the possible removal of his eye.
