One of our workers, Wu saw a snake bite one of our Old English Sheepdogs, Hen Da. The snake wasn't venomous so our founder Du Yufeng was taking Hen Da to her house to clean the wound and give her treatment but on the way Hen Da suddenly collapsed so they took a detour to Doctor Li's pet hospital.
By the time they arrived at the hospital, Hen Da had a big painful lump on her throat. Doctor Li treated her for shock by giving her fluids then he drained the lump and gave Hen Da antibiotics and anti inflammatory medicine.
Du had been taking a new rescue, a little Husky mix puppy who had been found near the flooded river, to the hospital before Wu called her. He was very sick and was also hooked up to fluids. Tests showed he has Canine Distemper. Once the fluids were given he perked up and showed us what a fighter he is.
Du and Wu stayed at the hospital for several hours so that Doctor Li and the nurses could monitor both dogs. There were no kennels free or room at the hospital for the dogs to stay overnight so Du took them home with her and continued the fluid therapy, monitoring them both around the clock.
Every day for a few hours the dogs have been taken back to the pet hospital (the video of them in the car).
A few days later Hen Da was given a good check over then discharged but the around the clock care continues for the Husky mix puppy.
We have had such bad weather lately in Guangyuan. There have been storms and galeforce winds for weeks with flooding causing people to be evacuated from their homes.
You can read more about it here.
In our city there is flooding at our shelter, some of the dogs have been moved into already crowded kennels because of this. There have been landslides blocking roads including the one leading to the shelter.
Du will continue to nurse the puppy at home and brave the storms to get to the dogs at the shelter when she can.
We really appreciate your donations and monthly sponsorships. You pay for the treatment for fur babies like these.
