Peach – infected eye abscess (warning: graphic content)

Six week-old Peach is just 0.8 pounds and had a severe eye infection from a giant abscess gone wrong, likely caused by feline herpesvirus. Her eye was bleeding and discharging and needed surgical attention. Our amazing in-house vet, Dr. Hanna, performed a double enucleation (removal of both eyes) to give Peach the best chance at a pain-free life.

We weren’t sure if this tiny girl was going to make it through the night, as such a significant surgery takes a toll on the body, let alone a body that does not even weigh a full pound. But this morning, she gave us good signs when she simply woke up! Even better, she is eating with a little bit of help!

Peach has a long way to go in her recovery, and she does have a bad upper respiratory infection (URI) that is inhibiting her from breathing out of her nose, which doesn’t help. But with your support of her surgery and recovery, Peach will have the best chance!

Will you help Peach heal?
