Meet Nito, a darling, terribly matted, male lhasa mix abandoned at a west Houston vet clinic recently. They shaved him down and brought his buddy and him to Citizens for Animal Protection. Chestnut
Animal Hospital in Bellaire donated an eye exam. He does have dry eye which is a permanent
condition so he will need eye drops every day. The good news is that a compounding pharmacy
can provide them at a cost of about 2/3 of what a traditional clinic prescription is. He has decent vision and no indication of glaucoma, just has big eyes!
Nito is quiet, well behaved, rides well in a car and gets along with other dogs. He is 5 years old
and heartworm negative. He weighs about 13 lbs.
In a good economy he would have a tough time finding a home with a chronic condition. In the current economy it will be even harder and his time is not unlimited.
