Updates On Baby (2)

Is that a smile??

We have never been so ecstatic about poo before, BABY CAN POO! The volunteers visited Baby today and there was such a unanimous feeling of total relief and joy when the vet told us Baby pooed that it made up for all the worry and heartache we felt in the past few days. Her catheter is still attached and she is still on a special soft diet so as not to aggravate her injured bladder. Baby is eating well and is cheerier, she knows that she had received help and was very sweet and friendly when we visited.

She is able to stand for short periods of time. The senior vet had bandaged her hip area securely to hold her hip fracture in place, allowing her some freedom of movement while on painkillers. We can see how happy and appreciative Baby is to be alive and standing, and that makes us even more determined to see her to full recovery. Dogs are such amazing and resilient creatures and we do have a lot to learn from them.

Baby's undersides are still terribly bruised and swollen

We would like to sincerely thank everyone who have helped in one way or another. We are short of $1000/- for her stay till this weekend. The vet has recommended she stay for another week or so, depending on her recovery process. Upon her discharge, Baby would need a foster as well.

If you can help with her vet bill or foster her, please email hopedogrescue@singnet.com.sg

We would like to thank everyone for being so supportive of what we do, and for giving Baby hope and the belief that she will soon be happy, healthy and well again.
