On 5 April 2022 we got a report from someone who had clearly tried their best to help a puppy that was hit by a vehicle in the Estancia Subdivision in Sibulan. She was covered with a blanket, and had been trying to hydrate her through a syringe. We can't carry the burden of every neglected, abused, injured or sick stray here in Dumaguete, but we simply couldn't let this one go.
It's clear someone had cared enough to do this, but had probably reached the limit of what they could do for her, particularly since vet bills can regularly exceed months of salary for the average Filipino.
We called her Eva which means Life, and tested her for Distemper and Parvo and with the help of many donations received, did everything we could. She was in a critical condition and her temperature was really low - 34.3, so we put her on heat pads, an IV, gave her pain meds and antibiotics, and had two vet assistants, Carl and Adrian, to monitor her through the nights. They stayed with her, stroking her and talking to her so she didn't feel alone.
We had hope when she made it through the night, and her temperature started to rise, but she is was infested with large worms, which cause a lot of damage to internal organs. The damage was probably too far gone, and she passed away quickly the night of 7 April 2022. Rina, Carl and Adrian did everything they could to revive her but couldn't. Run free little Eva, sorry your short time on earth was so hard.
