Coming to the Sanctuary after his elderly owner moved to assisted living, this 12 year old guy had recently been diagnosed with diabetes and had been in the process of trying to regulate his Insulin.
Ortega has been doing much better and looking great. He loves spending lap time and getting cuddles from his many visitors. He remains off of his Insulin and we are still awaiting the results of a recent Ultrasound. An ECHO of his heart has revealed that he does have heart disease and we are working on a good treatment plan for him.
