Bodhi suffers from a serious chronic infection in both ears – so bad that it has caused the ear canals to calcify, hardening over the opening.
Tragically, this severe ear disease has robbed Bodhi of his hearing, leaving him permanently deaf.
Since coming into our care, Bodhi has received extensive treatment from our in-house vet team, including regular ear and abscess flushing, long courses of antibiotics and medication for pain management.
But his infection is so severe that the inflammation has now closed over the ear, rendering treatment with antibiotics ineffective.
We refuse to give up on him, and have sought the help of an external vet to perform surgery to remove Bodhi’s inflamed ear canals.
The costs for his multiple surgeries, lab tests, medication and care are already well into the thousands, and as a community-funded charity, we are struggling to shoulder this financial burden on our own.
We urgently need your support to help cover Bodhi’s mounting vet bills, and ensure we can fund the last major stage of his treatment.
*** UPDATE: Loyal RSPCA supporter Di was so moved by Bodhi’s story that she has generously offered to match all donations to his Emergency Fund, up to $7000 – incredible!
That means your donation will go twice as far to help Bodhi, and other animals in need of urgent medical care. Your $50 donation = $100 ***
This surgery will remove the irreparably infected and very sore inflamed tissue in his right ear.
It will prevent repeated infections and abscesses developing in and around his ears, and save poor Bodhi from enduring any more pain and discomfort.
Will you help Bodhi rediscover a life without persistent pain?
