Cases this week 15th June 2012
One of three little female pups left outside Dogstar House earlier this week. All were given anti-rabies vaccinations and wormed and treated for fleas. As Dogstar already has 2 inpatients, we arranged for the pups – Astra, Flora and Seetha – to stay at Randeniya Temple while we find new homes
Amputee Kitty has been an inpatient at Dogstar for 10 days but is doing well and we hope will be able to go to his home on Monday.
3 of our clients walked around 4km this morning to Dogstar for the Friday morning clinic to seek treatment for their pets – as always, Dogstar was there to help. Love these ears!
Lucky has been suffering from skin problems for several weeks but is now much improved and we hope feeling more comfortable. Originally a street dog, his caring owner has been bring Lucky weekly for treatment.
After Friday’s clinic, we were called to see a street dog living at a nearby spice garden who had been hit by a car. Here Dr. Ruwani assesses her before giving painkiller and treatment – the team will visit tomorrow morning to check her again.
Zeeba needed treatment for worms (he was very thin), ticks and received his first anti-rabies vaccination today. He will be seen again next week.
At 2 months, Benny weighed just 1kg! He was treated for worms and fleas and will come back next week for further assessment.
An earlier photo shows street dog Bunty who was victim of an RTA. She had a pup with her who needed some urgent treatment for ticks – she was taken back to Dogstar and treated.
Next stop Randeniya Temple to feed pups Astra, Flora and Seetha. The fluffy pup is Pinky who belongs to Wimala Thero, the monk who helps us with the dogs at the temple.by
