Kane is a gorgeous boy that unfortunately has ‘episodes’ (thought to be caused by an inter cranial infection when born). During these episodes, Kane can stop breathing – requiring mouth to snout resuscitation, becomes dehydrated – needing subcutaneous fluids, body temperature dropping (sometimes close to hypothermic) – requiring heat packs. His episodes can last anything from 40 minutes up to about 6 hours. He has been rushed to the vet for these episodes numerous times but sadly there is nothing they can do for him. To save him the trauma of these frantic trips, I care for him at home during his episodes doing all treatment needed & then just hold & love him. There is no pattern to when he has these episodes & he has gone 5 weeks without having one, unfortunately the longer the period between his episodes the longer the duration of them when he has his next one. Kane is always a little sleepy & clumsy for a couple of hours after an episode but then becomes an ‘ordinary’, loving & playful little boy. He will remain with me & be loved for the rest of his life.
Lucy was saved from a rural council pound, she is elderly but spirted girl that has a permanent eye and skin problems, but that is all under control with the help of one of our vets.
Please support DABS so we can continue to support Lucy so her last years are her best years.
Duty of Care cat Sadie. Sadie came into DABS care five years ago with her adult daughter Lady,.
Yes we know Sadie looks grumpy but maybe that’s because before Sadie came into DABS care she had lost part of one of her back legs, how she survived that injury untreated and with no regular food or shelter is testament to what a tough cookie this girl is.
Sadie does not care much for humans and can we blame her? but at DABS she has a soft bed, plenty of food and peace. If you would like to donate especially for Sadie just mark your donation Sadie.
Pictured is Olive a sweet tiny girl that came into DABS care as a kitten with diarrhoea, after many investigations Olive was diagnosed with IBS and now has bad hips at only 4 years old.
Most times Olive leads a happy life under the care of her cat carer, but sometimes she needs more support then just care with her diet, this is just one of our Duty of Care animals that by your donation you will be supporting.
