HELP ME GET SEEN & ADOPTED!
Remington was surrendered by his owners recently. Immediately since his surrender, NYBC noticed that he was having strange discharge from his nostrils along with pigment change. Remington was treated by local vets with antibiotics but symptoms did not dissipate.
It was then confirmed that it was NOT kennel cough. Bloodwork was then done which points to the possibility of a severe infection. Local specialists pointed to possible fungal infection in the nasal cavity or polyps, or even the possibility of cancer. It was discussed that this needed immediate attention in fear of infection traveling to the brain! Today he is at UPenn Veterinary Hospital to be examined and to make a plan of treatment. Possible endoscopy, biopsy and possible surgery is on th table. Please consider donating to his medical care and treatment.
Remington will need to be under anesthesia for a CT scan followed by a rhinoscopy. Internal specialists at PENN believe he has nasal aspergillosis. This is when a fungal infection creates plaque that becomes intimately attached to the mucosa and the treatment is to surgically debride the entire nasal cavity of the fungus. It is pertinent to know if the bacteria which attaches to the walls of his nasal passage may have even infiltrated his naval cavity! The CT scan and rhinoscopy will show if this is this case, and doctors will assess if the infection has begun to travel to the brain. It is also necessary to determine the extent of damage the infection has caused, as treatment will be vastly different depending on the results. If no infiltration is evident between the nose and the brain, medication can be directly packed into the nasal cavity after debriding the area of all the fungal bacteria and plaque. If the CT scan and rhinoscopy show infiltration the treatment must be altered. Please pray that the infection is contained to the nasal passage as the effectiveness of treatment depends primarily on the medical staff’s ability to pack the fungal medication directly into the nasal cavity.
