Poor Lenny has Blastomycosis, a deadly fungal infection, and It's A Pittie Rescue currently has him checked into a 24 hour critical care hospital. Our devoted volunteers have been making frequent visits to the vet office everyday just to show Lenny some love in between his eye drop treatments. They have nicknamed him 'Lenny the Love Bug' because he is so sweet and gentle.

"So we cuddled and talked and loved on him and then he fell asleep. He was so cute...I'd try to move once he was asleep and he would get up, climb back next to me so he was touching me, and then go back to sleep. "

Please help It's A Pittie Rescue with Lenny's Blasto treatment, he is an amazing little man!

Lenny's story:
"I first heard about Lenny last Sunday (8/4) on a Facebook post. I started inquiring, found out he was at CACC most likely blind and was very ill. When I inquired with a transfer coordinator I was told he was up to be euthanized at any time. We all started scrambling to save him, find a foster, transport etc. Within hours, he was in our possession and he went to our vet first thing on Monday morning. Because of the condition of his eyes, she sent us to an eye specialist first thing.

The eye specialist was very convinced he had Blastomycosis, a deadly fungal infection. From there he went back to our vet where we discussed his treatment etc. It was determined that the best place for him, was a 24 hour critical care hospital. Three of his systems are affected by this disease: his eyes, his lungs, and his skin. It has caused blindness in his eyes, he keeps developing lesions on his skin that burst open, and it causes major congestion in the lungs. As you start the treatment for Blasto, and the fungus starts to die, it lets loose in the lungs and can cause them to go into respiratory failure at any time during the first few weeks of treatment. It can take up to a year of treatment to completely rid the body of this fungus. It can range anywhere from 5000.00 to 10,000 to treat one dog with Blasto."
