A 4th PARAPLEGIC DOG IN OUR SAVING THAILANDS FORGOTTEN DOGS SUPPORTED BY FOUR PAWS International HAS HAD HIS LEG AMPUTATED.

He started to chew his foot and his leg became swollen and infected. His carer took him to the vet who performed the amputation the next day. This sweet dog suffered a broken back as a puppy when his owner hit him with a stick. Jai a team member rescued him 5 years ago.
Boonlong (means lost in Thai) has been having increasing problems with this leg recently. He has it constantly bandaged as he drags himself around on soft ground. He likes to get out of his pen for exercise. Boonlong had a drag bag but it got ripped to shreds. With this latest development the vet said the only solution was to amputate the leg.
We will start a fundraiser to get a wheelchair for Boonlong soon. Meanwhile we'll get another drag bag made for him. If you'd like to help this horribly abused dog our Paypal is paypal.me/Headrockdogrescue Thank you

OLD AUNTIE MAUD HAS COME DOWN WITH BLOOD PARASITES. This horrendous hot weather is playing havoc with the older dogs' immune systems.
Auntie Maud is the latest of 5 dogs to come down with blood parasites. 4 of them are old and 3 are Temple dogs. She'd had a horrific flea infestation which we treated immediately but 2 weeks later she was crawling with fleas again.

This isn't the first time Auntie Maud has had a flea infestation but her immune system together with our treatment was enough to fight the blood parasites. This time it was different. She's older and the weather has been horrific. She also suffered the stress if being put in a dark enclosed space for 3 days when the district Governor visited the Temple. All the Temple dogs had to be put in pens.
I noticed her eyes looked very dirty on my last visit to the Temple. A sure sign something is wrong. We took A. Maud to the vet and sure enough she tested positive for blood parasites. The vet said her attack had just started so she wasn't in a serious condition.
Auntie Maud is now at our Centre receiving treatment for a month before returning to the Temple and her daughter.

REMEMBER THIS PUPPY HIT BY A CAR AND SUFFERED FOR 24 HOURS BEFORE WE FOUND HIM?
We rushed him to the vet's clinic where he stayed 1 week before they could operate due to his poor health. He has the saddest face cos he was in great pain with 2 breaks to his back leg which have both had steel plates inserted.
We collected him today and he was overjoyed. The lady holding him was the first to find him and she will be taking care of this little puppy at her home. She's named him Chowkuay which is a Chinese sweet drink!
His bill is very high over 20.000 baht or about $700.00 as he had 2 breaks and was an inpatient for 2 weeks. Please consider helping us pay for his treatment which will help him lead a normal life. If left on the side of the road he probably would have died. Our Paypal is paypal.me/Headrockdogrescue Thank you

UPDATE ON WILD MUMMY 4 AND HER PUPS. We caught her in the holding pen easily and brought her and her 5 pups to our Centre. As her pups are still young we decided they needed her milk more than we needed to get her neutered quickly.
This little family are now safe and happy in our new pen where they'll stay until the pups are strong.
When Mummy won't want to feed them anymore cos of their razor sharp little teeth we'll get her neutered. We may bring her back to her pups for a while until we find homes for them.
After neutering Mum our main concern will be to ensure the puppies strong and healthy prior to adoption.

 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.
