The Victoria SPCA hopes the public can help save a five-month-old German shepherd suffering from a severe bladder infection with cauliflower growths.

Cedric was surrendered in Port Alberni because his former owners moved and is currently staying in foster care among goats, chickens, other dogs and humans.

The pup will require two to three months to clear up his infection, followed by another surgery and recovery.

“Cedric is such a sweetie! His bladder is too far back, which causes incontinence, so he needs surgery to remove the growths and change the position of his bladder,” said Annie Prittie Bell, B.C. SPCA Victoria branch manger. “He’s a lovely puppy with a very social personality. He loves people and dogs and other animals alike.”

The total cost of his medical needs is estimated at $8,500 and the non-profit organization hopes the public can help with donations.
