Injured Limping Doggie Back To Vet



After brought back Alera from treatment, a short nap, got up, called Joseph, called Chong Kooi and headed out again for Lucky, the limping doggie. This time bringing Lucky to my car was easy, Joseph just grabbed him and that's it! He was not resisting. Phew! Chong Kooi also told us that he has not been using the leg totally and still limping. That's really bad.

At the vet, x-ray was carried out and the pin or plate will only be removed by tomorrow afternoon. Dr Teoh examined Lucky and told us that the joint and muscles has became stiffer. That's not very good. The other reason Lucky was still limping might be the cause of the pin inside the leg as it irritates the movement of the joint. Anyway, we only will find out tomorrow after the surgery.

Alera's Wound Treatment Day 4



Day4
Alera is getting a lot energetic and his appetite has also improved. Reached the vet at the same time as yesterday and the vet not very busy. Usual treatment was given and there is some 'wetness' at the wound area too. Luckily there was no pus in the wound according to the vet. That's definitely a plus to recovery :)

Day3
His skin around the wound area had turn really black today indicated that's the dead skin. The area was quite big too as you can see in the video below. He dislike traveling and on the way to vet just now, he was like meowing throughout the journey. I hope he will healed quickly so that he can come out and play with the rest and no more vet visits! Unfortunately that's not the case. He has to go back everyday except on Sunday.


Alera's Wound Treatment Day 2


Day 2
Some skin has turned black around the wound area, those were the dead cells according to the vet. No sedate injection or medicine was given to Alera when the cleaning process as it might create a side effects and risk on Alera.

His appetite also has improved a lot so was the urine. Video below was shot before we went to the vet.

The vegetarian dog food is a new arrival at the pet store and I decided to try it. As for Alera, his will be the tuna. Tomorrow shall be another busy day for me as I have to bring Alera to the vet for treatment. I hope he will recover very soon before Christmas!

Alera Has Bitten Himself Very Badly.



Woke up this morning and I was shocked! The whole bed was full of blood and at first I thought it was the urine. But when I looked closer, the whole chunk of muscles and tissues on Alera's hind leg were gone! Without delay, I went to the vet right away. I just do not understand, he has everything, I mean he has his time to come out and play and all the attentions he needs, just wonder why he always like to bite himself.

The doc has examined the wound and found out it is very difficult to stitch up as the wound was severely damage and there were holes on the skin as well. He told me that he was going to perform a 'secondary treatment' for Alera from now which is cleaning and dressing up everyday until new skin and tissues develop properly so that he can stitch up later in time. We are looking at about 3 to 4 weeks time. Alera has also lost lots of blood and he has a larger cone now around his neck.

Alera Urinary Track Updates 26Nov2007



No more vet visits! Yay! Well, at least for this moment! I just shot the above video today to show you a better view of how Alera reacted to his new diet/food, which is wet can food. I have mixed the food with cranberry relief as usual. He was banging the door, lol, it was funny how excited he was. I noticed he love this type of food instead of dry kibbles. In the video I did mentioned that he urinated very little, but that's not the case, at the end of the video, the whole diaper was soaked with urine! Yellowish urine, fortunately!

The wound also has became stiffer and there was like an extra dried skin on top when you touch it. And because of this, he bitten himself again! Yes, again while I was chatting online with a friend (Melissa) on my ustream live feed. The video below was recorded with ustream built in recorder. You might want to check it out too. Anyway, I have cleaned the wound and applied again the rowarolan powder.

Alera Urinary Track Updates 25Nov2007

Took the photo above today. Thought of sharing with all. It's funny and sad at the same time while looking at them. Funny when they are wearing the same type of cone just in different sizes, it just made me laugh, I mean they are cute in that. Sad when they are still not fully recovered. Lulu is getting worst, the joint, athritis and the wound in front of her two legs. She has cultivated a very bad habbit which she constantly biting her both front legs. I was told by the vet to wash with the same antiseptic solution and apply rowarolan powder. Once Alera is fully recovered, I will spend my time on Lulu and bring her for thorough check up. I have shot several videos and showed to my vet, and the vet has told me probably the bones on the hind legs are slightly bend and dislocated a bit. He has given Lulu some medicine for time being, just to ease the pain. It really helps but I am scare of side effects as they are just pain killers.

As for Alera, today he finally got out from his bed! He is getting better but not as playful as he used to be. I think probably he is not 100% recovered yet. Urination was very little today though. Appetite was VERY good. I will start to stock up the wet can food by tomorrow or on Tuesday.

Alera Urinary Track Updates 24Nov2007

13:30 24thNovember2007


Just a quick updates for everyone. First of all, I am really, I mean really exhausted! But the thing that I am really happy is Alera finally eats on his own. No force feeding and no blending needed anymore. Yippeee!

I won't be uploading any videos for now on youtube regarding Alera as the trip to the vet was almost the same. Same medication and vitamins were given. However, my vet still think Alera has to be on low pH food for safe side. So I was told to mix a little, like sprinkle a little bit of blended food on the tuna he is eating right now, together with the cranberry relief.

The vet also mentioned that today will be the last medication day on Alera, at least for this moment. So from now onwards, what I need to do is try to monitor his urination and the wound. I hope the wound will healed properly by next Friday as he really needs a BATH!

Alera Urinary Track Updates 23Nov2007

11:30 23November2007

16:09 23November2007


There was pus in Alera's wound this morning. I cleaned the wound as usual and also force-feeding him. He really didn't like the low pH food. So after a 5ML tube, I stopped giving it to him. The doc gave him the same medication today. His urination has also improved a lot.

I also told the doc regarding his dislike on low pH food and whether is it possible to change to wet food for a while just to boost up Alera's appetite. After consideration, the doc agree to try different food on Alera. Unfortunately the vet didn't have low pH wet food, so what he did was, he gave Alera some wet tuna from a can. Alera loved it but wasn't able to finish all at once. I was told to mix with the Cranberry Relief with the tuna wet food starting tomorrow. The Cranberry Relief is recommended to help maintain and support a healthy urinary tract. And also I brought back the cone this time! Let's hope Alera eats a lot starting tomorrow as he needs to gain back his strength again!

Alera Urinary Track Updates 22Nov2007

12:42 22nd November2007


Usual medication was given to Alera today, a jab of antibiotic, vitamin B-complex and a pill. The urination is getting better, not that reddish anymore. However, when look closer under microscope, it still contain some blood cells which we can't see with out bare eyes. The wound has healed properly. The vet also said he is not dehydrated anymore.

When I left the vet, I was a bit hurry and left the collar cone there on the table. So tonight I have to let Alera by himself without the collar. I found one of Bobo's puppy shirt and put it on. It fits well on Alera but just doesn't covered Alera's wound fully. He looks pretty handsome on it. Hopefully he won't bite the wound tonight. His doesn't like the low pH dry food and I have to force feed him, but he did drink glucose and water by his own when I gave it to him. The vet said he has to be on low pH food, at least for this period of time.

ps : Alera still bit himself when I last cleaned him at 10:40 pm. I have no choice and had to make a cone that similar with the collar cone from cardboard and masking tapes. My fault for not bringing back the cone.

Alera Blood Test Report

Alera's blood test report arrived at the vet this afternoon. The doc said the kidney is a bit weak due to the readings. However he said it might be just temporary. Alera need to go to the vet again tomorrow for antibiotic and vitamins. I have force-fed Alera this afternoon with the low ph food. He ate like 10 tubes of 5ML blended food but he drank very little water. After that, he felt tired and slept for 1 or 2 hours. I cleaned the wound in the evening around 9:30 pm. He urinated and his urine did not contain any blood at all, just yellowish. This surely a relieve!

Alera Urinary Track Updates 21Nov2007

10:25 am
According to the doc, it might be the psychological effect that Alera has bitten himself. I hope I spelled that word correctly. Anyways, the doc has cleaned the wound with chlorhexidine (antiseptic solution) and applied Rowarolan (calcium carbonate) powder on Alera. He told me the powder will work better and faster than cream. I was told to wash the wound twice daily. Alera is getting better each day and this shows a good recovery process. I hope the blood test result turn up okay too. Will have to wait and see.

I have some good news and some bad news. Well, I will start with the good news first.

Alera was a bit active today at the vet. The doc gave him the same antibiotic and vitamin. He was on drip too for 15 minutes with glucose. The urination also has shown some good sign, not as much blood as the first 2 days. He drank by himself too while came back from the vet.

Ok, now the bad news. If you have followed my ustream live streaming videos and you can see all the recorded videos here, Alera has bitten himself again! Yes, again, on the spot where the doc has shaved him. The wound is very red and large comparing to last time. I got to know only when came back from suppper around 11:30pm. I was in shock and without delay, cleaned his wound with clean water and applied the cream that the other vet gave me last time. I am not sure why he bitten himself but I am sure it must have been very itchy. This is very sad as he is on his way to recovery and another incident occured! I will bring him to vet tomorrow and see what the vet will say about this.

12:50 19th November 2007


Brought Alera to the vet this afternoon. There is still blood in the urine. However at the moment of writing this, the urine was not so reddish when I last checked on him. The vet took some blood from Alera and will send it to the lab tomorrow for kidney test. Alera was also on drip for 20 minutes to keep him hydrated and vitamin B-complex was given to him too in order to build up his energy. A small dosage of antibiotic was given as well.

I have to force feed Alera with the low pH food. So I went to Tesco with Khairul just now to get the blender. I fed Alera two 5ml tubes of the blended food. He took some and that's a good sign. Will try to feed him again tomorrow morning. He has to go to the vet again tomorrow for drip and antibiotic and I think the vet did a very good job! By the way the vet is Mr Teoh :)

Videos above were taken before going to the vet in the morning and noon.

I force fed him little by little yesterday with some dry food soaked inside the water and also some glucose water.


This morning I supposed to go and help out the Meatless Day Carnival which is now going on, but Alera was peeing and he sprayed out a bit from the cage and I have to take care of him for a while. I guess I will just drop by the carnival during noon just to greet Khairul and take some videos to share. Alera drank a lot just now, by himself! Yes, he was like got up and look at the water plastic bowl. This is definitely a good start to recovery! I will try to give him some food later. He is now sleeping.

Alera Having Lower Urinary Tract Infection


Today is one of those 'difficulty' days. Alera urinated a lot since afternoon and it is still going on. I have changed 3 diapers in a row within half an hour. The belly just full of urine. He usually drink lots of water everyday but he doesn't urinate everyday though like the rest. He is not feeling very well and moody.

Sometimes he would hold the urine until a day or two then would let it out little by little. But today he seemed to let out A LOT. I brought him to vet after that and it was getting worst, he urinated with blood. The following is what the vet has told me.
  1. Lower urinary tract infection
  2. Bladder distension due to cystitis
  3. Hematuria-urine with blood.
The vet performed some scanning process on Alera and according to him the kidneys are alright. It is just the bladder contain lots of urine ( dirty urine ). He has given Alera a shot of antibiotic and some pain killer. He also recommended low ph food for Alera and asked me not to feed him with current food that I have at home. The low ph food is from Ekanuba. Alera is not eating and lost his appetite and he just hide himself at the corner of the cage.

This is great surprise! Wow, I never, ever, thought of that coming. I was chatting with Phil and Chris yesterday night, mm...let me think, not yesterday night, in fact it's today morning at around 3.30 am. I was posting up a video regarding the Dead Dog At The Middle Of Express Way that I found on the 14th and suddenly I got a message via msn from Phil, asking me whether I want to hear a good news. Well, everybody love good news!

They have written an article about Alera and me and it got publish in 'your Cat' magazine (December 2007 issue), one of the Britain's Best-Selling Cat Magazine. The article appeared in the 'star letter' area. Mimi and Ah Black was mentioned in the article too! The article wins Sooty a Stockholm oval cushion, how sweet! And she deserved it! By the way the photo below is 18-year-old Sooty, the princess and only princess in the house, photographed by Phil from England.

ps : thank you so much Chris and Phil for showing the article to me. Deeply appreciated and not to forget Sooty! meow~!

Dead Dog At Middle Of Express Way

It's late, around 11:30pm, Bee Bee and I saw this furry dog lying down and not moving in the middle of the Jelutong Express Highway.Nobody seemed to care much as you can see in the video below. Not even a single car pulled over and checked the dog out, can you believe that? This is very sad indeed.

From far, I told Bee Bee there was a dog in the middle of the highway. I pulled over, parked my car, put on the hazard lights and walked towrads the dog with my digital camera. When I went near, I thought he was still alive, really, the body feels warm and there were no blood. He probably just died not long ago. He must have been hit by a car. I started to take some photos and because Bee Bee doesn't have bigger bags in her car, we didn't carry him right away. However I moved him to the side pavement.

Called Khairul for help and we came back with some plastic bags to wrap him up. We drove to SPCA Penang after that and no one was there. Its late and I guess the care taker must have slept. We just couldn't leave the carcass outside by the gate as there were many dogs around the neighborhood. After 15 minutes, we have no choice but to climb in. Khairul went in and Bee Bee and I were helping out by passing the carcass, it's HEAVY! I called Joseph after that and asked him to aware about this since he is a full time volunteer in SPCA.

Teasing Baby Alera While He Sleeps



It's been a while since I last updated on Baby Alera. I have taken many short clips of my fur kids very frequently and my hard drive space is running out! I will considering getting one external hard drive for backups, you know, I don't want to loose all the precious photos of my fur kids and their videos too. Anyway the video below was taken somewhere in mid october 2007 and I just found a piece music which I think might work on the video.

I love teasing Alera whenever he is taking a nap, evil me! He never got angry with me, not even once. Usually all my fur kids will be sleeping or taking naps before their dinner, between 2pm till 4.30pm. Ok, just a short update anyway and I hope you will like the video :)

Young Pigeon Crossing Rainbow Bridge



Today is another bad day for me. I saw this young pigeon few days ago, he was standing on the grass below my apartment as you can see in the video below. I could felt that something was wrong the first day I saw him. As I walked towards him, he flapped his wing and flew away. So, I thought maybe he was fine. But the day after that, I saw him again and he just sat there, not moving much like an ordinary pigeon would do, so again, I walked towards him, he flew off. I didn't see him yesterday though and thought he must be somewhere else.

A while ago, when I brought Bobo down for a walk after his big meal, from far I saw 'Ah Gal', the neighborhood dog, had something in his mouth and she was walking towards me. Out of a shock, I saw this pigeon was in his mouth and I raised my tone commanding her to put it down. Ah Gal is a very socialable and obedient dog and she let him down at once on the grass. I looked at him and I wasn't sure what to do. For sure he was not badly bitten as there was no blood on his body. Ah Gal was like 'holding' her in her mouth instead of biting. Brought him up to my apartment, into my room and everyone ( my kids) were excited but I chased all of them out from the room and started recording the video. Its already 7.15 pm at that time and all the vet clinic were close except one emergency vet. I gave the doc a ring and asked if she could look at the pigeon, she told me she supposed to go out any minute but she was wiling to wait for me. Without delay, I was off to the vet.

Unfortunately the doc couldn't do anything as she didn't have any medicine for birds. She told me that the pigeon was very weak and skinny. I was told to keep the bird hydrate and spoon feed him. After leaving the vet, I drove to the nearest pet store to get some bird seeds and ask their opinion on how to treat sick bird, they did not have a clue either.

When I got home, the pigeon was very weak and he was dying. I felt very bad and did not know what to do except gave him some water. He couldn't stand anymore and was laying down. My wife has also prepared a small cup of glucose, thought it might help to gain his strength back. Sadly, we were wrong, after a few drop of water in his mouth, he was like falling into a deep sleep and in just less than 5 minutes, he no longer moving. It's very sad moment and I have not wrap him up yet until now. He has reminded me about a birdie that I saved not long ago ( few months back ) but end up crossing the rainbow bridge too after that day.


Please leave any comments and advise on dealing with injured birds, I really need to know more. Very much appreciated.

Supplement From VeganEssentials For Furry Kids


Lulu has been suffering from arthritis since few years ago (hind legs) and her joint conditions is getting worst recently and also she kept on biting her front legs. This has got me worried since many months ago and I did get some medicine for her from my vet but they just didn't help much. I have tried various range of glucosamine, both in powder form and tablets, unfortunately I didn't see much result or improvement on her. She used to be very active last time and can jump up on chair with no problem. But now if you watch the video below, she is getting weaker and I have to carry her down from second floor, 2 times a day to go potty, unfortunately they are not toilet trained. Bobo and her used to walk together but now I have to take one of them down separately. Video below and photo was taken last month.

Ten days ago, I placed order online some supplement for Lulu and Papi. The online store has lots of vegan products for companion animals and also for humans, the website is called VeganEssentials, check it out if you are interested. One good thing about them is their shipping cost is very reasonable! I have bought the following;
  1. HomeoPet Skin & Itch Relief Formula
  2. Glucosamine HCL Powder by Prescription 2000
  3. Natural Calcium Powder for Dogs and Cats by Animal Essentials
I do hope glucosamine and the skin & itch relief medicine will help and improve Lulu current condition. Since the glucosamine and calcium are in powder form, so feeding shouldn't be a problem. All I have to do is mix with their daily food. By the way lulu is already 9 years old and she was adopted from our local shelter.

Monkeys Confined In Small Cage.

We spotted this two monkeys a week ago at 'Dewan Sri Pinang', a place that showcases artsy event such as symphony orchestra, live theatre, jazz jams, cultural dances and various art exhibitions throughout the year. Recently the surrounding inside the building has been reconstructed and they have brought in many animals such as small various birds, rabbits, lizards, peacocks and lastly monkeys.

The cage for the monkeys is extremely small and there is obviously no space for such active animal. The cage dimension measured approximately 6 feet tall and 4 feet wide as you can see in the video above. There isn't any small gap of divider to separate humans from reaching them also. Anybody can stand very close to the animals and birds. This will eventually create stressful emotion on the animals especially from mischievous children behaviors. They shouldn't have been there in the first place if you ask me. They suppose to be free in the wilds, especially the monkeys and all the tiny birds. They don't belong in a small confine cages instead they suppose to be on trees or at a big botanical garden.

Khairul has spoken to one of the gardeners and base on the conversation he had with him, the monkeys have been, in the confined small cage, for almost 6 months already. At first, there was only one, but due to the loneliness, they have brought in another one. I know some of the readers might think I am a bit weird or extreme by saying this, but I think they are like small kids in prison, same goes to all the small little birdies. Animals are not 'decoration'.

Sunday Beach Walk And Photoshoot.



Last Sunday, three of us went to the beach, just for fun and at the same time I wanted to take some photos of Bee Bee. And since Khairul was following us, I have taken his photos too. The weather was cloudy during that day and breezy. Lots of people there, picnic and having fun. It has been a long time since I last went to the beach. The beach located not far from the city at Tanjung Bunga behind Crown Jewel Hotel. To be honest, the beach is not very clean as people has been throwing rubbish to the sea all these while instead of using dustbin.


Anyway, while we were there, we saw 2 or 3 dogs and one of them was very friendly! One was very sleepy :) I think they must came from the cafeteria nearby. We also saw a small puppy and the owner was trying to teach him/her how to swim and not to be afraid of water. I have taken some photos and a short video just to share and give you a short tour regarding our beach here. By the way, that is not the only beach we have, if you look at the map here, we have many since Penang is an island.

Injured Limping Doggie Medical Vet Bill

Went to the vet just now to pay the first payment of Lucky's (limping dog) medical bill. I am very glad and grateful that my vet has given me a huge discount. And also to all donors, you know who you are, just to let you all know, without your donations, Lucky will be still limping and had broken bones in his hind leg. I feel deeply grateful and thankful.

However I still owe the vet RM 700 ( Ringgit Malaysia) and once I got my debit card which I hope very soon, I shall withdraw the pending funds from PayPal and pay him. Since the vet is a good friend of mine, he willing to wait till I have enough funds to settle the balance. He is a great guy! End of this month, Lucky will have to go back again and had his plate removed. I hope Chong Kooi will take good care of him within this period of time and not to let him roaming in the neighborhood.

Injured Limping Doggie Finally Got Home.


Lucky ( injured limping dog) finally got home today after spending so many weeks at the vet. He was very excited to see Chong Kooi. Unfortunately we might have to wait a while until he manage to walk normally again. The vet will take out the plate inside the hind leg end of this month. He told me that after taking out the plate, Lucky may feel more comfy and the joint hopefully will work better. He also said, due to severe damage on the injured leg, the muscles has contracted, so he need more time.

That's Chong Kooi and Lucky together in the photo on the right. After this, I will be seeing them in 3 weeks time. I told Chong Kooi not to let Lucky roaming outside and keep him within the compound. I will try to check on Lucky once a week to monitor his condition. Will visit the vet on this coming Monday to pay partially Lucky's medical fee.

Injured Limping Doggie Going Home Tomorrow.


Just a quick update on the injured limping doggie. The video were shot on 29 October at the vet. In the video, you can see he is still afraid to use his injured leg. Maybe it is because it's still painful. The plate has not yet taken out and the vet will only do so probably end of this month. I am not sure why it has to be taken out and I will definitely ask the vet tomorrow. Due to the high fee involved and also limited of space for him to run about, the vet have suggested me to take him back.

I went to Chong Kooi's house just now; the man who is willing to keep him, and explained to him about the surgery progress. I also showed him some videos of the dog on my laptop too. If you have been following my videos and if you listen carefully on the third video, when the vet was doing the x-ray, he did call the dog Lucky. What a coincidence, Chong Kooi also called him Lucky too!

Tomorrow, Chong Kooi will follow along to bring Lucky back and I am sure Lucky misses home! Chong Kooi also contributed RM 100 ( Ringgit Malaysia) just now for Lucky medical fee and this is a surprise to me as he is a retiree. At first, I rejected his money but he insisted me to accept it as a token of appreciation.
