Our tiny tadpole had his first ear surgery (TECA) and neutering at The AMC on August 6th. At first his prognosis was guarded because of subtleties detected on his full body scan. We were worried that years of neglect may have prompted the severe infection to become a malignancy that had metastasized. A few days later we got great news that “Frog’s” biopsies came back clear.
About 3 weeks later “Frog” returned to the hospital and had his second TECA surgery. Now his missing ear flap is back! These biopsies were benign too.
The “patient patient” has been convalescing in a loving, foster home in Hicksville. TECAs require a long recovery, and the chronic inflammation must still work its way out of his tiny body. His foster parents Maryanne and Warren (a retired policeman and EMT) are taking such amazing care of him. He’s on antibiotics and pain meds plus receiving medicated baths to help with the itch caused by the chronic ooze. The little “Prince” relaxes in the sun on his lawn chair throne. Maryanne sends frequent reports announcing that “all is well with Frog today”. Once fully healed, “Frog” will be looking for a forever home.
Last Hope would like to thank everyone involved in the “Frog Prince’s” transformation- Dr. Pamela Schwartz, Dr. Sarah Kalafut and their amazing AMC veterinary team; his foster parents Maryanne & Warren; his chauffeur Aunt Donna and all his supporters and well-wishes for helping to make this “happily ever after” come true.
