Jeramyah's Story
March 1, 2010

 

We thought Jeramyah had only one eye. Here is our sweet little boy

Tiny 8 ounce Jeramyah came in as a tiny 4 week old extremely malnourished baby. He appeared to have only one eye. On closer inspection and soaking his eye was discovered under severe matting. At first we thought there was no eye left, as it seemed to have dried out. It was terribly ulcerated. All that was visible was a thick white substance under thickened swollen eyelids. He and his sister came in with very low temps and soaking wet and covered in urine.

 

The vet did not know if it would heal but we decided to do our very best! We are determined to save his eye. He is doing well and has a sister (Johannah) who loves to snuggle with him. This litter was dumped at a nearby shelter We took in Jeramyah and his sister so he would not be totally alone. She has proven to be such a good little care giving sister. Now after a few weeks of meds, hot packs and nursing care and he can open his eye. It looks like there is indeed an eye there. The thick white covering slowly came apart then fell off his eye. As we applied eye ointment and hot packs the eye has improved daily. Please send healing wishes to Jeramyah.
