Lattie’s Medical Case
Categories: Pet Spotlight
Meet Lattie, he’s a 6-year-old, male cat who we transferred into our care through our partnership with Animal Care Services. Lattie came to ADL with an unknown medical history and suspected head trauma. It was noted that he was blind in both eyes and had a hole in his hard palate (the roof of his mouth). This is known as a traumatic cleft palate. Lattie suffered from chronic respiratory infection, as a result of this condition. After ensuring that Lattie was healthy enough to undergo surgery, our veterinary team repaired the defect in his mouth. Unfortunately, he also had detached retinas causing his blindness, and the best option was to have them removed. The good news is, Lattie has healed from both operations and is doing much better! He’s a very sweet boy who lets you hold him and enjoys being pet. He’s still adjusting to this life change but is expected to have a great quality of life. Lattie is now ready to find someone to give him a second chance and a forever home. If you’d like to meet Lattie, then visit our main campus!
Unfortunately, Lattie is one of many pets at ADL who has needed extra care before being placed for adoption. If you’d like to help us save more lives, then please consider making a donation to help us give a second chance to the next Lattie.
