On 5 February 2022, we
received multiple reports of this poor dog that was in the same spot for a number of days, covered in red ants and clearly not doing well. X-rays and inspection at Animal Wellness revealed a fractured pelvis, kidney disease, and concurrent infections of Erlichia and Aplasmia.
We called him Wes, and back at the Sanctuary we organised a blood transfusion to give him healthy blood from Jango.
He appeared to rally briefly, sitting up and eating a drinking a little, but the new blood could only sustain him for a few days. He was unable to create blood cells for himself, and passed away during the night of 9 February 2022.
Rina and Rachelle were with him. He just stopped breathing at around 11pm. At least he didn't die alone on the side of the road and hopefully he felt all the love. Rest in peace sweet boy.
