In June 2023, we responded to a request to help an old dog with a large, infected head wound. As an old street dog, he would have seen Distemper many times, so it was the lesser of two evils to bring him to the Sanctuary for treatment. We called him Teo.
On 14 June 2023, we rescued a very old dog with a nasty head wound full of maggots. He had no teeth, and would have quickly died without our intervention. We have no idea what happened to him. Under the direction of the wonderful vets from Pet Monarch Small Animal Clinic, we treated his wounds at the Sanctuary.
Although we have a distemper outbreak, he would have died if we left him and dogs on the street of his age, around 12, will have encountered distemper many times.
It may seem a reasonable question to ask why we would try to treat such an old dog, but we believe every dog has the right to a level of care, compassion and a chance to live the natural span of their years, no matter how long or short.
Already, with his wound treated, he is looking brighter and better, and we live in hope that there is an adopter out there that would be willing to provide a caring, loving, gentle home for Teo's last few years. We know he deserves it.
