Moose had polyps in that ear. He has lived with infection in his ear for a number of years and when he came to Pet Haven he was treated for an infection but when it didn't clear up as it should have, the vet took a more careful look. Moose was sedated and he had several polyps in his ear.
A specialist was called in for surgery and Moose has had his total ear canal removed. It had multiple polyps, infection and damaged tissue from the years of infection. Moose is a good natured boy but he has struggled with pain and eye drops and oral medication and antibiotics (which caused diarrhea). The indignities of it all!
Right now Moose is having trouble blinking his right eye because of swelling after the surgery and we hope he will get over that soon. 'Dry eye' drops are keeping his eye healthy until he recovers that ability. He may be hard of hearing in that ear but will manage fine since he has another ear to hear you coming up for some special Moose-pats.
Soon Moose hopes to be feeling much more like himself - a gentle giant of a guy who loves to be with you, likes to be on your lap and sleep near you, who plays and amuses you. He's an easy going fellow who gets along with another cat and loves tummy rubs also! Keep checking - he'll be ready to be adopted soon.
