About The Pet
This dog was rescued on 17/8/12, 11pm at Segambut. His body was bleeding all over when I found him.
Sadly, a group of boys were throwing things at him, probably because of his stench and appearance. Luckily i have a habit of keeping kibbles in my handbag in case I see a hungry stray. So, I immediately got down from my car and fed him. He was so hungry that he gobbled up everything within minutes.
My friend and I were discussing how to get him into the car as we were afraid that he might snap at us. Suprisingly, as we were discussing about this matter, the dog climbed up the back seat himself!! I guess he was really looking for help! :-)As the condition looked serious, we decided to take him straight to Gasing veterinary hospital.
The dog needs a minimum of 8 weekly injections for the mange (RM15 per injection). Looking at his condition, the vet mentioned that this dog may require more than 8 injections. Antifungal and antibiotics treatment were given for 19 days (RM20 a day). The dog is now given a break from medication. Apart from the injections, the dog needs to bathe with Malaseb shampoo (RM48) twice a week.
I wish to appeal for donations to help with the medical fee.
Thank you very much.
Have decided to name the dog Bruno! He is getting really strong. Too strong for me to handle. Visits to the vet is getting more challenging! He is very handsome now, looks so much better as compared to when we first found him. I was also told by a customer at the vet that he is not an ordinary mixed breed dog. He seems to have some pitbull blood in him. When I look closely at his features, he does look like a pitbull without cropped ears. Check out his latest pictures! :-)
