The call for this pup came late in the evening and local medics raced out to pick up the pup in the dark.He was unresponsive and in very poor condition when he was admitted to the hospital.The outlook was not good and we did not expect the pup now named Winkie to survive the night. He had his temperature and blood glucose checked. The temp was too low to read and the blood glucose was the same, less than 0.6mmol. He was made comfortable and we would see how he was in the morning. The morning was the start of a long fight to help Winkie to survive,as you can see from the photos we administered a drip along with extra glucose,antibiotics and re hydration fluids given by stomach tube.We left the hospital at midnight we had worked on Winkie for 15 hours.He was making slow progress but progress gave us hope.
The next morning Winkie had improved dramatically this did surprise us all as initially he was given 0.01% chance of survival.We continued his treatment and he is so far going from strength to strength.
