Vet/Medical Info: On 4/10/2011 Kuei was vaccinated for DHPP and bordetella at the Gatineau SPCA prior to being transferred to Sasha's Den. 5/4/2011 he was taken to their vet for a complete exam. He was HW tested (SNAP 4DX) and was negative and was given his rabies vaccine. Advantage Multi was applied. Eye exam: his right eye is bigger than left. Pressure taken in both eyes: 15 on the left, 18 on the right. That is slightly elevated, but he has no pain associated with it, his eye does not run, his pupil is not dilated and everything else seems normal. He has juvenile cataracts which is the cause of his blindness. Heart, lungs, normal. Bacterial folliculitis. He was put on Novo-Lexin for 2 weeks. Slight Ortolani sign on both hips. He was X-rayed under anesthesia on 5/5/2011 while being neutered and does not have any sign of arthritis and does not have hip dysplasia. This summer he had a urinalysis because he urinates a lot, results were normal including density. He is on HW preventatives and was also dewormed with Safeguard X 5 days.
Owner Info: Kuei is a beautiful blind husky with Qc Rescue, Sasha's Den. Unfortunately, the rescue is experiencing problems with him that make permanent homing a big challenge. Kuei is still not house trained, in spite of the angelic efforts that the foster family (the actual owners of Sasha's Den) have made so far. They have also put together a nice pen for him outside, in which they can't leave him, as he will howl and bark at the least noise. Although Sasha's Den has homed blind dogs in the past, the combination of all of these issues make the situation overwhelming and Kuei would benefit from being undertaken by a specialty rescue. They are not sure if the blindness and incontinence have been caused by seizures or maybe head trauma from his past life as a stray. They have to get up at 6am and take him out at once. He has to go out every 4-5 hours during the day. Placing a blind dog is difficult, placing an un-housetrained blind dog merely impossible, around there at least. Kuei's eyes are brown, clear and wide - it is not obvious he is blind. He has a very sweet disposition. He eats well, has normal stool. He gets along with female dogs, is a little macho with males. Too rough with small dogs, not to be trusted around cats. They can help with transportation, Kuei is located in the Rawdon area, Qc.
