The maggot wound
We received a frantic call from an auntie who lives in Jalan Pahang last weekend. Apparently she had come across a dog lying near some undergrowth which could not move much. She was told by people around the area that the dog was hit by a car more than two weeks ago and had been just lying there. However, some people had been feeding the dog which also had a huge maggot wound on its chest. We called our rescuer friend in that area and he spent the whole of Sat trying to carry the snappy dog into his car. He went back the following morning with a vet's assistant and doped the dog before taking it to the vet. The dog has been treated and also castrated. The vet says there is no spinal injury and the dog is not able to move probably because of soft tissue injury which will heal with rest. We have admitted him to the clinic and are happy that the auntie will adopt him. We are glad that the dog will have a home once its discharged from the clinic. We hope there will be others who will also adopt or the least foster the dogs or puppies we help them rescue. Anyway, the Dog has been named Lucky and anyone interested in sponsoring his treatment can call 019-3576477 or 012-3739007.
