“Sweetheart, Is This What You Would Have Wanted?” – A Reflection On Euthanasia
27th Apr 2012, by AnimalCare

Ref: http://myanimalcare.org/2012/04/26/can-we-ne uter-our-way-out-of-killing/ Remember yesterday’s article which I posted (link above) about rehoming being more important than neutering and urging shelters to be no-kill ones? I sent the article to two shelter managers and I did not receive a straight-off “No” from them. Rather, one replied saying their shelter is working towards no-kill. The other said theirs would reflect on the contents of the article. When it comes to the ...

Indy’s Acupuncture Today
27th Apr 2012, by AnimalCare

Indy had his acupuncture treatment today…  After the needles went in, he was put in the carrier, as usual. He complained and tried to open the lock. I think he was already feeling better compared to the last two days when all he did was to sleep. Well, sleep is very healing; that’s when the body heals itself as much as it can.  Time’s up. The needles can come off now. Dr Susanna said Indy has a weak-qi and weak-blood problem, in Chinese medical terms. It is not anaemia, th...

Sweetie Sweetie Pie!
26th Apr 2012, by Second Chance

The doctor may tell you that too much of sweet stuff is not good for your health. How about too much of Sweetie? Quite the contrary to the 1st sentence of this blog, we are pretty sure Sweetie would be good for your soul.Known to her fosterer/rescuer as being sweet natured and loving, she would be the perfect loyal companion anyone could ever ask for.Sweetie was involved in an accident not too long ago, her left hind leg was broken and is not 100% mended. Hence she now walks with a slight limp. ...

26th Apr 2012, by AnimalCare

Updates from Dr Dev: Hi Dr Chan, Attached is the latest pic of Kucing. He needs to be handfed. He is otherwise ok but still hasnt gone to toilet or eating by himself.

New Claim Forms
26th Apr 2012, by AnimalCare

Today, we’ve had three cases where applicants filled up our forms wrongly again, claiming for 100% subsidy for medical treatment instead of the agreed 50%. In all three cases, this is the second time it has happened.Despite my repeated explanation that our subsidy is only 50%, applicants still fill up 100%. I don’t understand why. This makes our work very hard because every claim form is audited. In view of this, we have revised our forms. To all applicants – kindly download ou...
