She will survive without a nose


We are happy to say that the dog whose nose had been looped off is doing well. Thanks to our excellent vets. Since we we off to Semenyih today to hunt for the prime suspect, we asked Animalcare's Dr Chan to do us a favour by visiting the doggie and taking some pics. We are happy with what we heard from Dr Chan as well as what we saw in the pictures. SHE WILL SURVIVE BECAUSE SHE IS A SURVIVOR! And we name her Citta which means "heart and soul" as suggested by Dr Chan because she has touched both our hearts and soul with her tenacity to survive. Our only concern is that she is not eating well and this is attributed to her either decreased or completely wiped sense of smell due to the tragedy. Perhaps we will try to goad her to eat by placing a piece of steamed chicken into her mouth. Citta is a young and healthy dog and she will learn to live with her deformity. Furthermore, animals learn to cope and adjust to their physical inadequacies better than us human beings. Anyway,coming back to our trip to Semenyih, we met the family that owned both Citta and her mother. Its a sad story of a family breaking-up with both parents living in separate homes nearby. Apparently the dogs break out and ply to and from both houses as they are attached to both individuals. These people are from the lower income group and not very educated and therefore do not really know how to care for pets such as compulsorily neutering them etc. Their neighbour, our prime suspect, has also been complaining about the dogs but he nor his family members were there for us to speak with. We also noticed the the fencing dividing both homes was a simple chain link (is that what they call it?) fence and we are seriously thinking of sponsoring clip lock zinc to be attached to the chain link so that the neighbours will not be agitated by the mummy dog's sight simply because they would not be able to see her. We will also arrange for the mother to be picked-up on Sunday to be sent to the same clinic where the daughter is being treated for spaying as we would like her to see Citta and know that she is still alive.

Hi MDDB,

Glad to see Citta is well. Banked in a small amount last night for her upkeep. Know it's not enough, but hope it comes in handy.
Thanks.
