Updates on Cash (from Survivor Shelter)

Ms Ong has the following encouraging updates today:

Cash does not have diarrhoea anymore today. This is absolutely fantastic news! The vet says this means she is absorbing the medication and the food. It is amazing that Cash is responding positively to a change of treatment and medication in such a short time.

When Cash was brought to this vet, she was actually in such dire straits that she could have “died anytime”.

Cash is also eating well and eating on her own now. Her appetite is good.

What matters to us most is that Cash is improving.

Ms Ong told us that she is relieved that she brought Cash to a second vet as Cash has shown a lot of improvement.

And she has already spoken to the first vet when she went to get Cash’s bill. The bill wasn’t itemised fully and the names of the medications were not listed. It was only listed in general terms as in “oral/injection medication”, so we advised Ms Ong to get the names of all the medication so that at least she could advise this present vet what Cash had been given while she was boarded and treated at the first vet for 2 whole weeks. Also, in order for us to pay out our Medical Aid, we need a fully itemised bill.

According to Ms Ong, she also told the first vet that Cash’s diarrhoea was actually so, so severe. The vet admitted that she noticed the diarrhoea but she said she did not know what to do. Ms Ong said that this first vet said Cash’s blood test report was better than Milky’s, but Ms Ong did not agree with the vet’s observations.

We are very, very sad and worried with what had happened to Milky and Cash. Milky succumbed to his condition before a second opinion could be sought.

Cash still has a fighting chance and it is already showing results now. We hope Cash will continue to improve day by day.

Ms Ong is still doing her best to go to the clinic to feed Cash every 2 hours, as instructed by the vet. Due to the fragile condition of her intestines, the vet advised that Cash can only be given small and frequent meals. She cannot eat too much in one session.

Every life is precious, whether it is a pet, a shelter animal or a street animal. When we take an animal to the vet’s, we can only hope that the vet will do their very, very best to treat the animal regardless of the animal’s background. And if the vet does not know what to do, then the client should be informed so that the client can make a decision to take the animal to another vet. That is the least we would expect of any vet – openness.

We thank the present vet very much for his quick actions and immediate treatment to try and turn Cash around.

We hope to hear good news about Cash every day now. Please be strong and get well, Cash. We are all rooting for you to recover and be strong again.
