Dora has recovered from TVT and is released! (updates from Imm’s Shelter)

Updates from Judy!

Dora just released back at shelter. See her scooting off again to neighbor’s orchard with Harry n Fluff following close behind.

Back “home” to her friends and her colony outside the shelter!!

Given 3rd chemo jab after this pix taken.

Such a vast difference from before the chemo treatment started. 

Dora healed so fast. So, it goes to show that every dog is different. Even though treatment was delayed because she was the hardest to catch and we really worried that her tumour and condition would worsen with time, she recovered in record time with just three chemo jabs!

Hence, never give up! And never make assumptions. There are more things in heaven and earth than is dreamt of in our philosophy! 

Sometimes, we hear from rescuers who simply make assumptions based on what other rescuers tell them and they give up on their rescues. Never do this, please. If advice is needed, please get it from a veterinarian, not “other rescuers”. If we need barefoot experiential knowledge on home care, then yes, we can always ask caregivers and rescuers to share what they do. But when it comes to medical knowledge and diagnosis, please remember that there is a reason a veterinarian spend 4-5 years studying to be a vet. They know more than us and we owe it to our rescued animals not to make our unqualified assumptions and conclusions. We owe it to them to give them a proper diagnosis by a qualified veterinarian.
