Three Angels for Charlie? No, for CfD!

Now it’s more than 2 months since three angels (in our days they are called “volunteering vets”) arrived at the shelter supporting us with their professional skill for two precious weeks. This time they were not send from heaven but at least for us from a similar organisation known as Worldwide Veterinary Service. They arrived […]

Almost twins

These 2 dogs have a little in common. They both have massive head injuries on their right side and both are in a serious condition. But that’s as far as the similarity goes. The white coloured girl called Moi, was reported to us as having been hit by a car that morning. From the state […]

Go is a cute little guy who 2 years ago went through an operation it seems to make a hole from his bladder out to his stomach. Why we hear you ask. Well we don’t know really but it was done by trained vets and the result was that he could not pee through his […]

Healthy wounds & Cushings Syndrome

Whilst I had the vets attention (not always easy) I started a conversation about Tdua Noi’s skin & in particular the profusion of blackheads, the relaxed folds of skin & the presence of hair along the back and forearms. I asked the vet about their experience with Cushings Syndrome. Sorry to be boring about this subject but to me it is something the vets here seem to be avoiding or are oblivious of.

Never one to pass up an opportunity, I rattled off the details of the other 3 cases we believe we have at the shelter (Khaow, Little James & Petal) and the vet disappeared off to consult with a few others and some literature.

Dogs with serious health problems

This Monday the routine vet trip was unnecessary, the cases we had were dealt with at the shelter by our current visitors from the UK, Veterinarian Luke Gamble from WVS and the SKY Tv film crew. But I did go to the vet yesterday & today with a couple of dogs and they were fairly […]

Icecream & Poodles

This morning I had the greatest of pleasures in sitting with a dear old friend during our trip to the vet with some other folks in the back but when we were in conversation, they didn’t really matter, we were mates, we were pals and we weren’t interested in what went on outside the truck […]

Black Heads, Sore Heads & Pacco the dumped fluffy bundle

If you drink coffee or tea, it’s time to make yourself one, take a seat and read this report about a very interesting vet trip. But first, the shelter is seeing a major change at the entrance, with the development of a clinic, surgery and office / store, which is very exciting and needs a […]

Vet Trip – Freedom in the driving seat

Anyone who has been near an Alsatian dog will know what I am talking about when I say “Big Dog” and indeed, if you have sat next to an Alsatian whist driving a car, you will know exactly what I am saying. Having a big dog like Freedom around needs a sense of humor and […]

Monday Vet Run

Today the 5 dogs visiting the vet along with our new man at the shelter, kh Suriya were a typical bundle of joy, moaning, groaning and making a nervous mess for us domesticated animals to clean up. First up on the table was Nuu Daeng who was rescued last week from one of the busy […]

Vet trip

In the cab of the truck today was a lovely little creature, Heidi who was apparently occasionally limping on a back leg. During the ride into town, she alternated her position between standing on my knee with her nose out of the window, to standing on the passenger seat staring at the road ahead. Why […]

It’s all about pee and poo

Well, for those that work with dogs, you will know that already. But the vet run today seemed to take on a theme. First up on the vets table was Henry, who a couple of weeks ago was suffering badly with ulcers at his anus and this had been caused by impacted anal glands. Today […]

Monday Vet run plus bad news

Yesterday one of the ‘13 in 2 hours‘ pups now living in a separate enclosure all to themselves, developed a deadly symptom of parvo-virus, bloody poo. We rushed her to the vet and after the virus was confirmed to be present and also very strong (from the speed the test kit reacted!) she was given […]

It’s Monday! – Vet Trip Day

Star, the sweet & innocent, unfortunate girl who was severely beaten at a temple where her mum died last week after being shot 3 times, joined me today in the cab of the truck on the vet run. In the back were Perry, Muli, Wawee, Jenny, Kai Dao & Maggie. The journey was fairly uneventful […]

Freedom and Cosmetic Surgery

The vet trip today was a fairly boring affair, so that’ s the reason for the title. In the truck cab with me today was Freedom the big Alsatian we rescued from the desperate situation in San Sai just 6 weeks ago, a terrible story you can read about here … Note the difference in […]

Monday Vet Run

Today the vet run was a simple affair. Well it wasn’t really but you don’t need to know about the complications. Joining me today on the vet run was a professional dedicated volunteer who is currently staying in Chiang Mai on her 3 month visit to Thailand where she has volunteered with more wildlife organisations […]
