Health conditions – Before and After Photos

Health conditions for many dogs living poorly on the streets and in temples can cause the dog to die a long an painful death.

Whether it be through weakness to find food or from viral or parasitic infections, they are sure to deteriorate if not assisted by humans using appropriate medications and treatment plans.

Below are just a few examples of the types of conditions dogs face here in Thailand. Most of the problems they face are curable and most of them preventable.

Some the photographs show blood and raw flesh. If you are easily offended or squeamish, please be warned you may not wish to view the larger image which is available in a separate page.

All images on the left are taken at the start of treatment. The images on th right are after treatment.


Wallace was an ‘owner’ dog, living on the street outside his owners motor repair shop with a gang of other family dogs.

His mange went unchecked for a long time but when he was rescued to the shelter for his treatment, he settled into the daily medication of Ivomectin. Veterinarians tested to find that Wallace had both forms of mange, Sarcoptic and Dermodectic.

Transmissible Venereal Tumor

Daeng was an ‘owner’ dog found walking around roads near her home. Another dog (male) in the same household also had a severe tumor.

Typical treatment of this condition is a series, approximately 5 – 7 depending on weight of the dog, intravenous injections of Vincristine.

Both Daeng & her house mate fully recovered from this curable condition.
