We are fostering an injured dog- sad news
« on: August 04, 2012, 14:23 »
One of the smaller male dogs was attacked by 2 or 3 of the bigger dogs last Thursday- a female  is on heat- so problems.  He has loads of stitches and wounds- he is now in our bathroom.  He looks very poorly.  He has just been sick- I hope it was because he drank some water after getting here, it was hot in the car- and he hasn´t been eating or drinking.
I will keep you informed on his progress.

Fingers crossed he perks up  :(
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

I am not cut out for the ´work´ at the refugio, I cried and cried when I saw how the poor dog was, I hate seeing animals suffer.
At the moment he is not looking good, we have just bought some Aquarius water, it is a tonic kind of drink.  I have given him a paracetamol ground down and put it in the water and syringed it into him.   I have been warned he might die, fingers crossed he will be ok.

Oh Pamela, my heart really does go out to you.   :(  I had to stop volunteering for Cats Protection for the same reason.  I just wanted to scoop them all up and take them home with me.  Big hugs for you and please realise that you are making a big difference to the poor mite, at least he will know that he is loved and being cared for.

Well done for trying your best for him, whatever the outcome. I hope he rallies around but I'm sure he is appreciating all the care and attention you are giving him.

We have cleaned his wounds, he looked so sad.  We rolled him over, didn´t want to hurt him.  He bit a lady at the refugio this morning, she took out a drip needle- he isn´t normally nasty- I guess he is in pain.  He has had his medication, I will give him another half a paracetamol at about midnight. I ground it to a powder and put it in the water drink (Aquarius, a glucose sport drink)  I have given him 10mg every 30 min or so.  He has just got up and walked to the other side of the bathroom, not that that is far- just 2 steps for us!  Our dogs have been to look, I knew Lola would be no problem, Jumbo has looked and not made a noise, much to my surprise- he knows Ratón is ill (I am calling him Poppet)  The cats are interested, they are use to dogs so I can´t see them being a problem.  We will have to wait to see if Ratón/Poppet likes cats! If he does... just maybe....  we might keep him.... if Jim falls in love with him.....

Off topic- what is your picture Impd?  I thought it was a sanitary towel!  :lol:

Back on subject-  Ratón/Poppet has moved across the room, now moved back to his cover to sleep on.

Well he is still breathing this morning- he got up and had a drink of water- then did a big pee- not as big as the pee he did late last night, they all but ran under the door! 
Ratón/Poppet isn´t interested in the rice and chicken- but I am still giving him the Aquarius water every 30 min or so, aprox 10 ml a time.
He looks dreadful when he lays down, but when he is laying with his head upright he doesn´t look so bad.  He gets a tetanus jab later on, Natalia, who is a helper at the refugio is a nurse, so she is coming over later on.  I will wait until then to clean his wounds, I don't want to pull him about too much.

I was a bit worried when I opened the door, he was fast asleep, I looked to see if his chest was moving - it was, Phew!!  I have just given him his first tablet, a paracetamol, ground down in his water, so I gave it a little at a time over an hour.
