Poor Benjamin Button! He was surrendered when his owner could not control his allergies, though she tried and tried. Benjamin is undergoing a regimen now and in these photos you can see how inflamed his poor face is.
This is what BB's foster dad had to say about him last week:
"I took Benjamin to the vet recently. Overall, the doctor was happy with his coat and face, he thinks that Benjamin is looking better overall. But we are still concerned with his red paws. The doctor wants to do a culture on his paws, so we are getting an estimate on that. He took him off the Simplicef and Benjamin is now on zenaquin as well as ketoconazole. We are keeping up with his medicated baths . He's wearing baby socks to prevent him from licking his irritated paws. He also gets his facial folds wiped a couple of times a day with the Malaseb wipes and wiping his paws after he comes inside from doing his business. He is such a sweet boy despite all the discomfort he must be feeling!"
