Mahjung got adopted

On 18th December 2011, Mahjung finally found a new home with Mr Chuah. He is a reporter from a local Chinese Newspaper and he got to know Mahjung during an interview in Muda House. Mr Chuah has always wanted to adopt a dog for his daughter and Mahjung needs a home with a compound to run around.

I felt very happy and yet a bit sad for Mahjung to depart from us. I am used to feed her everyday, no matter how busy I am. Mahjung is a very nice girl and she never made any noise despite being tied up when I am away or fed her late evening. All she needs was just my attention and play with her occasionally.

I will visit her to make sure the family is going well with her as the family have no experience with a dog before. I am sure Mahjung will bring tremendous joy to the Chuah family.

Thank You Note

Thank you to John and Veronica from Melbourne who donated RM500 cash to help the dogs in the shelter infected with distemper virus. Their kindness and love towards the dogs are highly appreciated. Thank you for her lovely and encouraging words for our animal charity works.

Distemper Virus Attack in one of the shelter

In one of the shelter, a few dogs were infected with distemper virus. We are worried that the whole cannal will be infected one by one. 

The following are a list of things needed to help the shelter and its infected dogs:
1) Clorox and Lysol to disinfect the cannal
2) AD meal
3) Iberet iron tablet (from pharmacy)
4) 100 plus
5) Multi-vitamins
6) Chicken/Fish Essence
7) DMG (from vet)

April has experience that distemper virus can be cured provided correct antibiotics are given at the early stage. Dr Joshua is willing to treat as he has done research on distemper virus. 

Dogs infected with this virus need to take lots f nutrition food, vitamins and strong iron tablet daily. 

These are the tips (crunch all the tablets and mix with food, add some honey or sugar or glucose to cover the bitter taste in daily feeding)

1) Feed lots of meat while dogs are still eating. Don't let the dog lose its appetite. If not eating well, force feed with AD meal.
2) Pork and chicken liver are good to produce red blood cell to fight against virus.
3) Provide half boil egg with cheese and I bottle of chicken or fish essence. (if serious, 2 bottles a day)
4) Iberet iron tablet
5) Multivitamins & B complex
6) 100 plus
7) DMG - increase immune system.
