Dog's a hero, get him a steak smoothy :(

What can they possibly do for it? Can they graft on the nose of another dog or something?

That made me sad. Then happy that they're helping the dog.

Perhaps too obscure.

It's a dog.

The same people who feel so strongly about donating money are missing a giant point about life. Wouldn't it make more sense to use $30 to humanely put the dog down, rather than put it through all that surgery pain and a completely dysfunctional existence, and spend the rest on saving humans?

Many anti-poverty groups, abuse shelters, and food banks could use the money. I have never understood the concept of spending more than a few hundred bucks on a pet when so many humans in this country and around the world are infinitely more important than fresh food, which every animal is in one culture or another.

/Not to mention the importance of sending the cash to anti-abortion groups (or reproductive service groups like Planned Parenthood if you lean left), since we all know it's more important to save a dog than avoid the death of millions of babies.
 
2012-11-02 10:47:13 AM  
...How does it eat? Hell, how does it drink?

Same her. The sight of the poor guy was jolting but felt very sad for the doggy.
Hopefully they can rebuild him and make him stronger..

First of all, this story is three weeks old. The dog has already been to UC Davis vet med, and has a host of problems, one being cancer. She also has heartworm. They were never going to reconstruct its face, just close a gaping hole it has in it. So they are just making the dog healthy, not giving it plastic surgery.

I realize that many people thing dogs are "just dogs", but some don't. You don't want to donate, don't. Simple as that.

how does SHE smell, more like.

Still manky when wet.

Just fine, thank you.

She eats

What's funny is they'll spend a few thousand to fix up a dog, while people in the Philippines will take street dogs and cook them because they don't have any money to get stuff at the market.
Been there, seen that.

Yes, but...How? I don't understand the mechanism by which it can chew or swallow. I also don't understand how it can drink, considering the action by which they do so.

The first of two operations will repair the dental area and the second will fix a wound on Kabang's face.
The doctors have no plans of making a prosthetic snout or replacing the dog's jaw, US media reported the hospital as saying.


So wait... No new jaw/snout? I'm not seeing what they're actually accomplishing that merits a $20,000 bill.

"Repair the dental area" to me sounds like "new jaw" but clearly it isn't.

I get your point, even if I disagree. Just a note, though, by definition, abortion doesn't kill babies, it prevents them.

You cannot expect your own priorities to be the same as everyone else. Some save animals, others save people. Each effort is valiant & priceless.

At UC Davis, veterinarians discovered Kabang also suffers from heartworm disease and a potentially aggressive tumor, which must be addressed first. Treatment of those conditions could take up to six months, according to Dr. Jane Sykes, director of the institution's small-animal clinic.

If successful, the veterinarians will then perform major dental surgery on Kabang and another operation to close the wound on her face. Left open, the wound puts Kabang at risk of infection and forces her to put excess effort into eating and drinking.

There are no plans to fit Kabang with a prosthetic snout or replace her jaw.

Yet magically, if those same people went out and spent that exact same money on a computer or kitchen remodel or tickets to Disneyland, no one would bat a sanctimonious eye about it. Quit trying to make yourself feel superior at others' expense and manage your own life.
 
2012-11-02 11:13:25 PM  
Poor little baby. I hope they can help it thrive again. A farking cat would have just watched the 2 kids get mowed down.
 
2012-11-02 11:28:44 PM  
Whoa. I was in Davis last week for the first and probably last time and saw this dog in the lobby of my hotel. Then today I stumble on this article.

The things you mentioned are more important than an animal--I don't see your point.

And my life is great--I have a cat that knows if he moves while I trim his claws he's in for a world of hurt. He's perfectly healthy, but the day he costs more than cat food to keep alive he's going down. A dozen more at the pound are just behind him waiting to not die.
