I also want to share with you a couple examples of recent rescues:
Surgery saves dog from near death
Golden had a large tumour that enveloped all his genitals and it was so big it burst open. Our vet tried chemotherapy but that didn't seem to work as the tumour was too big. Therefore, as a last attempt to save him she performed a radical surgery that involved removing the tumour and his genitals and performing a perineal urethrostomy, therefore making another hole for him to pee from. Thus surgery however came with the major risk of wound breakdown because so much had to be removed.
Goldie was then put on strict cage rest to hear for 2 weeks. 6 weeks later, he was brought back to his caretaker family, happy, healthy, and peeing just fine. I applaud Dr. Sonia on this incredible saving of this dog’s life.

Partially blind dog can now see
Princess Snowy came to DAR as a sick and partially blind puppy of only 1.5 months. Turns out the partial blindness was only because of her tick fever, and she has now FULLY RECOVERED, not only from the fever, but from her partial blindness too.
