CAUTION SEVERE ANIMAL NEGL;ECT!


CAUTION, CAUTION, CAUTION, DISTURBING PHOTOS
For those that know me, I run a very small wild-life rescue who takes in anything. Iffn you don't, welcome to my world
But what got droppedn at my driveway just yesteday, I am stupified.........And I been around the block a few times.

Let me say from the get go, I dont want yer freakin money, I jess want you to know WHAT hades our animals are subjected to.
A Chow was dropped off at my property. Sick, barely walkin and whatever.......so in pain she was unaproachable, the fact her hair was so matted brought tears to my eyes.

I kept an eye on her for bought three days, she was easy to keep up with at the end cos the crows were awaitin.....Heck, I'm screamin its time to do something.....she's too weak to be a threat.

I drove my lawnmower with a cart down there and tried to pick her up, bout 70lbs.......twas darn TUFF. I thought it best to put my face to her rear, in case she got an attitude bout my throat. She's hurtin', ya know? Wouldn't blame her iffen she took out my Jugular
I can put them out.....not for major surgery, but to check them out............
This is what I found, HOTSPOTS, under lots of fur. The maggots may have done a good job eatin off the dead flesh. I wasn't sure how to get them out! I'm screamin they are into the good meat.....somethin gotta be done.
This photo is of Mags in and out of healthy flesh:
If you care to see, not pretty:

The rectum was the most difficult to deal with, my sis (who I could not do without) and I took turns puking, we pulled the maggots out with tweezers after several enemas/vinegar sprays and such.

There is a good end to this story.......
Diablo is shaved, well and fine.

    Copper... Appreciate the serious desire you put into the care of our fellow critters! But then this is Roadfood... Some of the above pics.... Well... Been better off telling the story without the detail.
    But on the other hand, appreciate you taking good care of Gods fellow creatures!

    copper-- hats off to you - and your sister.. that could not have been an easy thing to do but i'm sure diablo appreciates the time and effort you both took to help this poor lil'guy out... what's he doing to do now? become part of your family??
    we have a neighbor across the street that did the same thing- minus the maggots- they found a puppy about 9 yrs ago- up by the baseball field by our house.. this poor lil girl had been severely abused and beaten- under nourished and all that.. they took it to the vet and ended up keeping her. they had to make weekly trips to purdue university ( about 4 hours one way) with her due to her allergies- she was allergic to EVERYTHING. she was on a special diet and everything.
    long story short-- they gave her 9 GREAT years that she never would have had due to the person/people that left her. they just had to put her to sleep because of kidney failure- it was sad for all of us- she'd become a neighborhood friend. but she had those extra SPECIAL years that were due to kind people like you..
    Thank you for taking care of that baby.. hopefully he'll be a good pet to someone...

    You gave us the option of clicking on the pictures with a fair warning of what we'd find. I think it's okay to have these here. Truth is hard but necessary.

    People who allow these things to happen deserve especially hot spots in Hell, IMNSHO.

    I have removed the photos and given the option for one to click on the link or not. I did not find it anything but the TRUTH, but I understand that it is a mater of opinion, once again i am in the position to apologize, UH.....would that word be, Conviction?

    Copper,
    I was raised on a farm every summer of my life, now live on one and tend to take care of what you show w/ a bullet to the head of the animal. Bless you for your caring. Our current dog was about to be shot by me when my wife rescued him. "He won't cost anything except for food...not like your hunting dogs" I heard this and shrugged.

    Next day I paid about $250 to the vet for care to my "free" dog. Buddy is his name and I truely love that little dog. My wife made him stay outside until one night it was going down to about ten. I slept on the kitchen tile floor w/ him so he could stay inside that night. Ensolite pads are wonderful things. He hasn't spent a night outside since that night three years ago

    I find Copper's post to be pretty bizarre. Why would you show a rectum filled with maggots on a food site?

    Personally, I don't think your for real. What does iffen mean?

    good lord. The person who was supposed to care for the dog, should be shot...or at least infested with maggots in return. Just horrid. Plain and simple. You don't have to believe in God to know that is a sin.

    I am wondering how you would fake a maggot filled rectum on a dog? Of course my wife's cousin still thinks the whole moon landing thing was a fake to hide money spent on other things.

    I have to admit that I did click on the pics and it was one of the few pics I have ever seen that made me gag.

    I left the site, went out on the deck during a neat thunderstorm and had my 5:00PM cocktail and forgot about it.

    Copper, how you could do that is beyond me?

    Gag a maggot.

    Super, I'll get the illegal hardcore porn- Maybe we can get some images of people screwing animals.

    C. My heart is totally breakin that you do not believe I am for real.

    Good. Do you have any pictures of a slammed, dunked, screwed, blue, and tattoed heart?

    I reckon' yer probably right. When it comes to IQ's, I bet three hogs to a horse yer the authority cos you seem purty smart.

    E. I removed the rectom photo, hell we all got one. But I did give you an option to click on the link..........or are you just so far behind it aint funny.

    How about some click throughs to other infected genitalia as well. Hell, we all got 'em.

    My wife looked over my shoulder and suggested I post pictures of my doing AI on my uncle's cattle. That is gross but I don't think the smell would compare to maggot removal. Sheeep have major problems w/ maggots under their tails, not the making of a good afternoon. Sheep are such wonderful docile creatures. They simply stand quietly while you clean out all that "stuff". Their little lambs are tasty also. Strange thing is you have to have either a donkey or llama in the fields w/ the sheep because they are just food on the hoof for almost anything, coyotes especially.

    Can we move to happier thoughts now? I would like to make a request for photos of this critter in a month or so.

    Diablo has all the symtoms of Parvovirus. I will not go into the details, because it is pretty rough. And will certainly not post photos.
    He has a 50-50 chance to survive, all we can do at this point is treat the systems (my sister, I'm just the slave labor)

    1. Prevent dehydration. Due to extreme bouts of vomitin and diarrahea. Parvo attacks the stomach lining and puppies are the most suseptable.

    2. High fever occurs also, it can affect the heart if untreated and within a shot amount of time they die.

    3. THERE IS NO CURE. One can only hope to treat the systems.

    4. A myth: once my dog has Parvos he/she cannot acquire it again. This is a myth.

    5. Since the virus afects the intestinal tract, proteins and electrolytes are no longer available to the body. Many times, a blood transfusion is required.....more than once, or the heart is shut down.

    I am not posting this to make anyone sick, I just want folks to know Parvos is at epidemic proportions. Perhaps I should have put this on the "Dog" site, but them folks take care of their animals. IT IS HIGHLY CONTAGIOUS TO PUPPIES, and often carried by adult dogs who show absolutely NO systems. Puppies chances are 20%.

    Diablo will MAKE it, I got the best (my sis) with me, and I have no problem doing all the crappy work.

    I promise to post happy pics soon, iffen I don't, I'll not say why.

    Deal?

    Copper, I spent $2,000 a few months ago getting my little dog repaired after he was viciously attacked by a 1/2 pit bull mongrel.
    The other dog ripped out 1/2 of his sternum. It was touch and go for three weeks. With trips to the vets every day or every other day for six weeks.
    It's was a 45 minute trip to the emergency vet office on a sunday PM. . . I made it in a little over 25 minutes.

    Thanks Shortchef, but its my Sis and the Vet she works for that deserve all the real credit. The Doctors office is located 65 miles away but I make the drive (that makes me just a dog-hauler iffen I can get them in my truck) because he only charges me for meds and such. He devotes his time for free. He also has two, sometimes three (my sis being one of them) assistants at all times, these gals aint afraid to jump right in there and handle a dangerous/injured animal. They know nine times out of ten its cos they are terrified, confused and in pain. Most of the time we tranquilize and muzzle, just so the Doc can take a looksee.

    My local Vet works alone with just a receptionist ( who WILL NOT touch an animal) I aint knockin them, they are just small-time and understaffed. I have talked him into coming out to my pick-up and innoculating dogs or taking a peek at them while I restrain them. But some cases I just cant handle alone and he doesn't want them inside iffen I caint control them. So I make the drive.

    I was gonna post my Sis's Dr. name and address on here because he has a "we turn nothing away policy". But he said GD (Gold Darn) Copper, I DO gotta mortgage and car payment. .

    Anyhoo, he is a freaking ANGEL in my book.

    BTW, I hugged Diablo very gently this mornin (from you and yer pups) and he actually wagged his tail!!!!! THIS IS AN AWESOME SIGN!!!!!! Things are looking better......depression and lethargy are dangerous signs. I like to think he was saying, "Don't give up on me Copper-mommy".
    Thanks, shortchef.

    I hear and unnerstan, my friend. Those afterhour emergency clinics can easily double the bill. I experienced almost the same thing with a white Pekinese I had. Its jaw was hanging ....so and so forth. The problem was it was during regular hours, so I had to get a recommendation from a local vet in order to get him accepted into the emergency facility. After I got the OK from the local and was on my way to Animal ER, he passed in my lap on the way. I clocked us at 93.

    Pit bulls are another story, my sis says I take too many chances cos I go by size of dog. ITS NOT the size of the dog, its the pound of pressure per inch in a jaw bred strictly for the sole purpose of inflicting damage. We report every suspected scumsucker who is possibly fighting dogs. They put the puppies in the pen with the adults to make them mean. Chewed up pitbull babies = dog fightin goin on. I will do anything it takes to PUT THEIR ASS IN JAIL.

    Hope yer little one is OK, WVhillbilly,

    Folks you are much better people than I. $2,000 in vet bills? Sorry but I would have killed the other dog and then my own. I won't spend $2,000 on a horse...in good shape and loaded in the trailer...ok, maybe for my Appaloosa I spent more but he is such a runner.

    It's not the size of the dog but the size of the fight in the dog.

    My roomie for many years always had a Bouvier des Flandres. They are reported to have the strongest bite of any dog. Sweet and lovable they also have an interesting habit(they were used by the Coast Guard in WWII as beach patrol dogs) of not barking when attacking. They are large dogs and one of the greatest chick magnets (I WAS single many many years ago) on the planet when giving them a walk in the park. Great dogs around kids also.

    Bless all of you for your love.

    "Bouvier des Flandres

    This is a breed my sister has had experience with also. They supposedly have more jaw power than a Pit. I NEVER blame the animal, it is the owner and how they are raised. The BDF you mentioned is the latest breed that is all the rage for the scum raising dogfight breeders to procure. It is BIG MONEY, but iffen I suspect yer ass and can prove it, you'll need every dime to POST BAIL to git yer sorry tail out of Lock-Up. (not alluding to your roommate whatsoever, V960)

    V960
    Just checking in...how's the little chap doing?

    How sweet of you to ask. He is in solitary confinement in a very small chain-link kennel (all I could afford) with concrete floor that I rinse and scrub with bleach every day.... Parvo can live in the ground for two years (or so they say, and I aint takin no chances with my other dogs, or Diablo).

    I am keeping him shaved just to give him relief from the heat and be able to keep an eye on his skin condition and hotspots. We seemed to have won the Parvo fight......but he was so weak when he came here, I'm not sure he already had it or not. A neighbor with two "extremely" high dollar Siberian husky females is dealing with Parvos too. They are only 9 weeks and he can afford to hospitalize them. Their Parvo is much more advanced than Diablo and I wish the best for him.......

    Please innoculate your pets against this horrible disease!

    Also. V960, I have shot kittens in the head with a twenty-two with the same maggot infestation........they were not mine, just a neighbor who had about 35 and none were ever taken to the vet. Its hard, but I was very poor then, and could stand to see the suffering.

    Diablo has become very protective and possessive of me, as many animals do with those who nurse them. He has gained about 10 lbs. (I feed him highest protein Diamond from the feed store). He even had the stones to growl at my white shepherd/wolf hybrid yesterday when he came up to Diablo's kennel when I was in there. Those two will have to have a meeting of the minds eventually.

    My Man says NO MOre Dogs,
    and I simply reply No More P*$$^.

    Needless to say, he is MINE.
    Thanks for your concern, V960'

    Copper, Diamond kibble killed my Doberman. Her liver failed because of the food being infected with aspergillis mold I believe it was. The first bout with it was in November, and she hung on slowly going downhill intil March.

    You can Google Diamond Pet Food and pet deaths to see what I'm talking about.

    I am frightented to hear Boovers are being raised as fighting dogs. I have been told that if a Boover bites your forearm you will pass out from the pain. I have batted numerous of them about the backyard in play where they gripped an arm or leg and just dagged me about as a rag doll. Wonderful animals.

    I am sorry to hear this breed has come onto the radar of the scum. It is truely a wonderful breed. Loyal, loving to the smallest child, and deadly to an intruder...could we ask for more?

    Also the greatest chick magnet in the park (I've been married for twenty four years but do have a memory of Freedom Park on Friday afternoons soooo many years ago). Walk a Boover on a Friday afternoon and you HAVE a date. Walk an old one w/ the grey hair and you have a relationship. Experience...not BS.

    As to the little chap. Make sure you irrigate (sure you are, and don't mean to sound as a PIA)the concrete surface after the bleach, residual sodium hypo could burn its paws. Also put up a june bug trap soon. They can sometimes prey on vunerable animals. Granualar lime spread lightly about the area can discourage insects, don't use the powder, it can be an nasal irratant.

    Thanks for the advice, I'm a novice and my sister is very busy. All info is appreciated (I was using hydrogenated lime, Uh-OH) After scrubbing and rinsing I put out a bed of wheat straw......is this a bad idea?

    No, actually the straw is a great idea but I would recommend removing the animal from the area and applying the cheapest bleach you can find for just a few minutes. We buy cases of this junk from Big Lots each year to sanitize the chicken barns. DA chickens will drink the run off and ...shall we say...have the trots for the next day.

    Flood the area or spray it w/ water after five minutes and then put down the straw. Sodium Hypochlorite (standard household bleach) will kill EVERYTHING but does need to be flushed. It will cause paw problems if not.

    The hydrogenated lime is a lawn topping and not truely a disinfectant. Used to be used to more quickly decompose protein (read bodies).

    Even if you keep using the lime, which will drasticaly reduce odor, flush the area w/ water before thee animal is placed back in the space.

    It just takes a few moments but the chemical residue can really eat their paws away.

    One idea, and I don't know your area but most farmer's will have "second level" or bedding hay they will almost give away. That would be perfect for you. I became known as someone who wanted this hay and I get more than I can generally handle each year. ?Be careful in that this hay may have a high moisture content which can result in spontanious combustion. Keep it out doors to be safe.

    No pictures but a disturbing comment on people. Two or so hours ago I took my Carolina Ditch Dog...an honorable breed...Buddley Studley out for his last walk of the day. I usually take him to the end of the road so he can think about chasing the rabbits in the fields.

    I live in the middle of nowwhere...end of the world...we're it. I therefore use my second amendment rights and carry either a Glock 40 cal or my fav for its wonderful lines a Browning High Power when about our land. The Glock is a better weapon but the Browning is just so beautiful...like a pistol version of Charlize Theron. But I digress (and sound strange also).

    Anyway, Buddy and I were standing on the side of the road when a clean, late model Buick went past at about fifty mph and a small furry package was ejected onto the roadway. Old eyes prevented me from getting the license number but I will admit to a few milli-seconds of considering putting a few rounds up their tailpipe. Take your glasses next time old fool.

    Anyway the dog is sitting on my lap now, a few abrasions (treated w/ h2o2 and the Neosporene), already placed w/ my Uncle once he is 100% and "fixed". The dog bounces well. Came up like a champ. I went over to him expecting to have to end it, he just pops up and starts trying to be friends w/ my dog. I cannot imagine hitting a road surface and coming up "Didn't hurt that much...few skins...who are you and does this big guy behind you have any food?"

    People who could do such things will have a special ring in Dante's Hades. This dog will probably max out at 70 pounds from looking at his paws. Good dog. Mostly Golden so we may have some hip problems.

    Just a rant...I'm really ticked right now. My wife would be pissed but he got a major part of a steak tonight. Hey, you survive a chunk from a car doing 50...you get a steak. Animal is clean as a whistle...guess they just got tired of him. Anyway I'm sleeping on the couch w/ him tonight, my choice.
