A Dog Loses her Snout and Lives!
A dog that saved 2 little girls, by jumping infront of a motorbike, has lost half of her snout but still lives.
The dog from the Philippines saved the daughter and niece of her owner and came out the other side, after having many operations and dental work, with heartworm disease and a tumor that will take a long time to treat. The dog had the original work done in Northern California and UC Davis where the veterinary school has the best dental services in the world after a big world wide campaign to raise money.
Due to the open wounds that the dog has, infection is a great worry and drinking and eating is extremely difficult.
There are no plans for reconstruction of the snout yet.
