Prasert Hit by Speeding Car
Prasert was dragged from the road by his owner who witnessed a car hit him without breaking or stopping. She immediately alerted us. Thankfully Prasert lives at the end of our road so we rushed to his aid quickly. We found him lying in a pool of blood unable to move and clearly in pain. We cleaned and bandaged his deep wounds, gave him an antibiotic injection and pain killer and then phoned the vet for further advice. Being Sunday he wasn’t open but he promised to be back before dark and at 7.00 p.m. he phoned to say he had arrived at his clinic. It took the vet 2 hours to clean, stitch and insert drainage tube in the deep wound which thankfully hadn’t pierced his heart but he thought Prasert’s spine might be broken. We nursed Prasert for 2 months, his wounds healed and he’s now walking and back home.
