Mushu got here to TEARS on the twenty third of December with horrific open wounds that had been inflicted on him by his littermates.
TEARS first met Mushu when his homeowners introduced all the litter to TEARS for vaccination and sterilisation. At the moment, we strongly urged the proprietor to separate the litter as they might start to combat with one another, a symptom of Littermate Syndrome in canines. Sadly, the proprietor didn’t heed our warning and Mushu, the smallest of the litter, grew to become a goal for his sibling’s onerous enjoying and lack of socialisation with different canines.
When Mushu arrived, he was taken to the TEARS Veterinary Hospital and assessed by the TEARS Veterinary Workforce. His wounds had been the results of repeated assaults by his littermates for days or even weeks on finish. His whole physique had wounds of various ages however the worst of the injuries had been on his entrance legs. Unquestionably, Mushu had been left with out veterinary therapy for weeks.
The veterinary crew had been totally horrified on the extent of the accidents and started therapy in an effort to assist this poor pet get pleasure from a life with kindness. Mushu’s wounds had been very contaminated and so earlier than any reconstruction might be finished, he wanted antibiotics to beat the deep an infection that his small physique was combating.
With bandaging, ache medicines, antibiotics, wound care, physio, train and Hill’s Pet Vitamin, Mushu began to heal and the injuries started to do higher.
He does have scaring on his legs however he’s a really particular little sweetheart who bears no unwell will in direction of different canines. In truth, Mushu loves different canines! He enjoys outings to the seashore and exploring. Mushu will stay a small pitbull, not solely as a result of being the smallest of his litter but in addition as a result of his development was stunted as a result of his physique combating to heal.
With out the veterinary intervention on the TEARS Veterinary Hospital, Mushu would have definitely perished – doubtless as a result of blood poisoning from the open, contaminated wounds. The TEARS Veterinary Hospital and all TEARS Veterinary Outreach Programmes rely 100% on donations like yours. With out the items that you’re giving cats and canines, like Mushu, wouldn’t have a combating probability.
