Jai Dog Rescue run daily clinics on the Farm and via a series of mobile teams to sterilise the stray dog population across the surrounding provinces. Our vets currently operate on an average of 17 dogs per day each and our increased presence in our local community has lead to a dramatic rise in the number of rescue cases referred to us. In the past year we have seen an increase 192% in rescue cases and that number is set to rise as our mobile teams expand to new communities.
Due to the complicated nature of surgery and specialist medical equipment needed, we often have to refer special cases to the local animal hospital. This can lead to extended stays at in hospital, longer recovery times and delayed diagnosis.
While our veterinary team is expertly trained to be able to perform complex medical testing and procedures in situ, we first need to advance our medical equipment to better prepare for the more complex rescue cases we continue to receive.
We are fundraising for the following pieces of equipment
- 120 Electrosurgical Unit
- Veterinary Biological Microscope
VETERINARY BIOLOGICAL MICROSCOPE
Having a microscope onsite will enable our vets to view blood and animal fecal samples to check fecal samples for parasites, diagnose skin conditions, take a closer look at urine samples (urinalysis), and other cytologies. Access to a microscope on site will allow for a faster diagnosis and more accurate treatment plan.
Tha Chang was severely emaciated, and suffering from multiple internal and external parasites, including mange. For dogs with skin issues like Tha Chang’s, it is important we are able to identify whether their condition is contagious to determine treatment plan and quarantine time.
120 ELECTROSURGERY UNIT
For patients in need of major surgery such as amputation, an electrosurgery unit can mean all the difference. This piece of precision surgery equipment will improve the quality of soft tissue and amputation procedures allowing our skilled vets to preform complex surgeries at the Farm rather than transporting emergency rescue cases to our nearest veterinary hospital.
Dogs like Don Yo come to our clinic in need of urgent care and in her case, surgery was the only available option for a chance at a happy life. Born with a limb difference, her malformed leg became a hindrance as it scraped along the ground causing infection, inflammation and considerable pain.
