Ralphie came to The Arrow Fund from a caring local vet who had received him as a stray. He was suffering from severe Glaucoma and flea dermatitis. Although Ralphie was surrendered as a stray, all of the evidence we have suggests that there is no way he was a stray for as long as it would take for the glaucoma to become this severe. Unfortunately, Ralphie was already blind when he came to us, and his eyesight and eyes could not be saved. After his initial evaluation with Dr. Tolar at Blue Pearl Veterinary Hospital, Ralphie was transferred to Dr. Missy Jewel at All Pets Veterinary Center for surgery to remove his eyes and to be neutered. Ralphie is now adopted and happy in his forever home!
