Vet Diary - An Eye For Trouble!

I am often surprised by the attitude of people who ring the council dog pound, annoyed at the wardens who have found their dog and brought it safely to the kennels to await collection. "The dog is always getting out and knows its way home"! Really? What if it CAN'T get home? What if it gets stolen, or run over, or gets into a fight with another dog, like the poor girl who was brought in at 7pm.

Thankfully what makes Stray Aid so special is that we do whatever we can as soon as we can, and within an hour of entry this dog had been given a general anaesthetic, stitched back together, and placed in a recovery kennel with the medication she needs. Whether or not a dog knows its way home is irrelevant, the streets can be very dangerous for unaccompanied dogs.
