The damage appears to be from Ethan’s extreme starvation before being found by the Kentucky Humane Society staff in January, doctors stated.

Callaway said Ethan had started new medication over the last week, which has not been working, and said he and caretakers are trying new treatments for Ethan as well as getting additional bloodwork done this week.

“He is struggling right now but he has the best care possible,” Callaway said in the post.

Ethan’s owner thanked the community for their continued support during Ethan’s recovery.
