New hope for Sum Li

Written by admin. Posted in Dog and Cat Rescue Story

Sum Li is very lucky to survive with 4 legs as she does not need to have one leg amputated. One of her paws has a deep wound due to the attack from a boar. When we took her to see the Vet, he decided to amputate her leg in order to avoid a serious infection. But because she has a blood parasite and severe anemia, the Vet can not operate on her till her red blood is back to normal and she needs to take doxy for about 4 weeks. During this period, we have cleaned and dressed her wound every day and given her an antibiotic. After 3 weeks, her wound was healed quickly and we can see only a small wound which is healing. We took her to see the Vet for checking, and to our surprise, he has decided that Sum Li does not need to have an operation at the moment but we will wait and see in the future if any problem occurs. Sum Li is lucky to survive with 4 legs; she does not have 3 legs for the rest of his life. Our hard work has paid off and we give Sum Li another chapter of his new life.

Written by admin. Posted in Dog and Cat Rescue Story

Pum Pui, a puppy with disability from birth. His spinal cord has been damaged which caused his two back legs being limp. He was rescued from the hill tribe village from Fang together with his 5 siblings. His mother was shot but has been survived. Now they are at our shelter. We have decided to give Pum Pui acupuncture treatment at the hospital. He already had the third treatment and he needs to have at least 8 treatments to see how his condition can be improved. We also give him physiotherapy to his back legs. Our only hope is to see him can walk again. He is such a happy boy and always drags himself around to play with other puppies. You can help Pum Pui’s treatment by donating through our website www.santisookdogsandcats.org.

Why sterilize your pets

Written by admin. Posted in Dog and Cat Rescue Story

Santisook Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation, in cooperation with the Veterinary Faculty, Chiang Mai University, organized an education program for pet owners to learn why they need to sterilize their pets. As many pet owners do not take responsibility for controlling the population of their pets. Many people still have an idea that it’s natural for pets to get pregnant and have babies but they do not think about the consequence that follows. If they have too many puppies and kittens, they cannot look after them and end up abandoning them on the streets or in temples. This will cause problems as these pets will be street dogs and cats and they have to try to survive by searching for food from garbage bins, or they be tortured by human beings. There are so many cases where dogs and cats have been poisoned to death as people do not like them around. This problem can get worse and worse if we do not help by stopping this circle. The most effective solution is to sterilize female and male dogs and cats. The idea of having an injection to stop pregnancy can cause more harm than good to pets, because if they have too many injections, this can cause the infection in the uterus which then needs to be removed by operation. Also, if the female dogs and cats are already pregnant and they have an injection, this can cause the death of the babies and is a risk to the mother. Male dogs and cats also need to be sterilized to make them less aggressive, so that they do not wander around and fight with others. Sterilization of your pets is not a complicated procedure – the wound will be healed within 3 -4 days, and after 7 days the stitches can be removed. For male dogs it is even simpler, as it’s a very small operation and the wound will be healed quickly.

The students decided to make a play about sterilization of pets so it’s easy for villagers to understand. At the end of the show, we gave a questionnaire and all people said they want their pets sterilized but they need support from the government for a free sterilization as they can not afford it. We will bring this issue to talk to the Livestock Department and also the Vet faculty of Chiang Mai University. This is a pilot project, and as the outcome is very positive we would like to widen this project to other areas in the future.
