Valley Animal Center Column: Meet Ferdinand, You’ll Become Fast Franz!

by Allix Ollivier

Ferdinand the Pug is a four-year old rescue from our local SPCA. We took one look at Ferdinand, and even though he couldn’t see us back, we knew that Ferdinand would have to become a part of our VAC family! Ferdinand was blind when we rescued him. He suffered from glaucoma which is an increasing pressure within the eyeball that slowly causes loss of vision. When we brought Ferdinand back to our shelter and had our veterinarian look at him, we noticed that he was suffering from intense pain in his eyes because of the pressure that the glaucoma caused.
