The ISPCA is appealing for donations to help the charity in providing much needed and extremely costly veterinary care for Hank, a three and a half year old Dogue de Bordeaux.
Along with two other dogs, Hank was removed from a property in Castledermott, Co. Kildare by ISPCA Inspector Brendan Hughes. The rescue was featured on the TV3 show 'Ireland’s Animal A&E'.
Hank was severely underweight, had rotten teeth and ulcerated gums and was infested with parasites. Due to a condition called entropion (turned in eyelids) his eyes were sore and irritated and there were ulcers on both corneas. In addition, Hank had numerous sores and bruises all over his body.
Hank has now been surrendered to the care of the ISPCA but will require significant veterinary care and attention over a prolonged period of time if he is to make a full recovery.
The costs associated with rehabilitating animals such as Hank are placing severe demands on the ISPCA’s charitable resources. The society is appealing to the public to contribute in order to allow them to continue their valuable work.Viewed 3613 times.
