We at Jade’s Dog Rescue NSW picked up a batch of neglected puppies yesterday. We were told they were 8 weeks old but it became evident when we met them that they fit more into the 5-6 week group. The poor little babies were covered in fleas, and full of worms. One had its whole back scratched up from likely being caught under a door.
We were told the mother was in a very poor state too. Unfortunately only the puppies managed to get rescued today. The female dogs condition has been reported.
One of the pups pooped out half a thick green cleaning glove (with assistance...)
However two of the pups took a turn for the worse quickly last night. This is from one of our foster carers:
I picked up two girl pups, they were very bloated and calm, lethargic, didn’t make much of a sound compared to their siblings. They had green diarreah and as the evening progressed they would begin to vomit repeatedly. They weren’t eating, couldn’t stay awake and they stopped being interested in water. Not to mention their big bloated bellies. I knew something was not right, I felt like they were beginning to clock out on me - and I rushed them to the after hours emergency vet. The brilliant vet confirmed my concerns.
They were anaemic which fit with the worm infestation theory, in pain and dehydrated. They were kept over night at North Shore Emergency Vet, Artarmon. Given fluids, pain medication, anti nausea, all wormer, parvo tests (negative! Thank goodness), blood count, protein and glucouse level tests.
Today they are happy, noisy puppies, eating and drinking with semi solid poop. They are discharged and alive.
Puppies go down just as quick as they come up.
Total bill: $1522.30
Jades Dog Rescue NSW is struggling with vet bills. Many dogs are needing treatment for various issues incl spine, severe allergies and hip.
