Comments received in regards to Incident 83 – 2013 of Sunday 14th July 2013

Today we received the following comment from Chris Thornton, on our website guestbook regards our rescue of a dog yesterday evening.

The full guestbook comment is also reproduced here within our ‘News’ section of the website;

“Hello, I would like to take the time and say thank you for all your help on the 14th of July 2013 involving my 9 months old Alaskan Malamute.

I would like to say thank you for all your hard work in rescuing our Dog, Devlin after his collision with a car, we couldn’t of possibly moved him in a calm and comfortable way as you did.

Devlin is now resting in the vets on pain killers and sedatives he did have a build up of gas in the stomach which could of lead to Gastric dilatation volvulus which could shut down other major organs and have other problematic consequences but luckily the vet has now removed all the gas build up with a stomach pump and hopefully it will not build up again.

Devlin also has a spiral fracture to his left front leg and half of his pad missing on his foot but hopefully the pad should grow back from the inside out.

As for the break the vets are leaving it alone until his stomach is normal and isn’t at risk because the break doesn’t seem to be life threatening unlike the gas build up.

Thank you for all your time and effort, we are so grateful for all your hard work and I am sure Devlin will be too.”

Furthermore the following comment was posted on the teams Facebook page by Gemma Higson, and is reproduced in full here;

“Thank you so much for all your help last night with my 9 month old malamute!

We couldn’t have possibly got him to the vets for the care he needs without you. Out of all the numbers we rang in the 3 hours he was there you were the only people to come out to help my poor baby! He is now heavily sedated and on lots of pain killers. Hopefully he will be home and back to himself in no time.

We will be making complaints bout all the services that would not come out to help and are going to write to the papers about what happened and how disgusted we are with the R.S.P.C.A. But we will be telling them just how helpful you were and what an amazing service you do.

We will also be giving you a huge donation for all you did. Cannot tell you how much i appreciate your help! We will keep you updated with how devlin is doing.

Thank You. ”
