Not only does he have a massive TVT tumour on his penis but he also has a big swelling above his eyes. This indicates a tumour has either grown on the frontal lobe of his brain or around his eyes. This dog is in a very serious condition
Our success was dampened by the nasty gash our Outreach Manager got on her head whilst crawling amongst stacked metal girders. She ended up in hospital to have it stitched and has been ordered to rest.
We're calling the dog Port cos that's where we found him. He's now in our isolation pen where he'll be treated for the next 2 months or longer. He's had his first chemo treatment and anti biotics and liver meds. Once he trusts us we'll clean the tumour daily. We're praying he'll survive.
After 24hrs, Port is slowly adjusting and likes to lie on the concrete floor I guess that's what he's used to. He's had 3 meals today of rice, chicken and fish and he's had all his meds.
Port was such a terrified dog to catch we thought he'd be aggressive. He's not at all. He's timid but has already started to bond with one of our staff. She can stroke him.
He knows he's safe with us we can see it in his eyes. Port has a long road to recovery and we need to give him the best of everything to keep him strong.
