We all love beautiful stories, don’t we? However, fairy tale endings are sadly not meant for everyone. It is important to stay sane and positive in this animal welfare line but we must also constantly remind ourselves to be practical, and do what is best for the dog (and not us).
In our years of rescues, this is probably one of the worst cases we have come across. We regret that we did not find out about him earlier, but at least he did not pass on slowly and painfully on th
A stray caregiver notified us of this street dog needing urgent medical attention and for many days, we tried to pinpoint his exact location as well as get hold of the timings he would appear. After days of stalking and trying, we got him. Finally. He was a feisty boy, barking all the way from his “home” - a work-site to the vet clinic.
The diagnosis was no good. He had multiple lumps on his body and around his penis. They were cancerous lumps and his body, was in fact already shutting down. The biggest lump must have taken months to grow but no one knew and/or did anything, and he just suffered in silence. It was painful just looking at the lumps. At this point of time, it was already too late. We had to say goodbye to him, no matter how much more we wanted to do for him.
Each case brought to the vet clinic, whether treatable or not, will definitely run into hundreds of dollars at a minimum. If you will like to help us cover his medical bills/cremation, do email us at email@example.com
. We definitely hope to be able to help more of them and more of the individual caregivers who have been struggling to care for them too. Thank you.
