Bigote, which means mustache in Spanish, is in gruesome condition. He lived his life banished to the streets. His rotting flesh is infected and he is infested with fleas and ticks.
He is gentle and forgiving and needs your support. Bigote needs bloodwork, cytology and most likely start an antibiotic regimen for any tick borne diseases. His raw wound is painful, his necrotic flesh was falling off to the ground and the stench is rancid.
Bigote is receiving IV fluid, vitamin booster therapies and antibiotic treatment to combat anemia and erlichiosis to improve his kidney values. His levels need to improve in order to begin chemotherapy. Blood tests confirm erhlichia and severe anemia. He required a transfusion to give his organs support from shutting down.
Bigote is fighting for his life at the hospital. We know these images are graphic but this is the reality Bigote is facing. Near & Far Animal Foundation specializes in saving cases like Bigote.

The good news is his emergency vet was able to clean the wound and with debridement was able to remove all of the infection tissue.
