Safari4u, in combination with WCCVC Chintsa Dogs and Wild Coast Vet, have been assisting Mlungu in the past few days.
His owners brought him to the student house to ask for help because his “eye looked funny.” It was immediately obvious that the eye was not salvageable and would need to come out. Our little popeye did well in his surgery and today has gone home with a wagging tail to his owner, Dominic. His stent is due to come out in the next few days so we can being you an update soon.
The first layer of padding and stitches came off today and although it is a bit swollen and sore, the wound is healing nicely.
Whilst Mlungu didn’t like Alex taking the stitches out (even getting a little nippy), he did actually enjoy the clean with the nice cool wet swab after. His good eye also “required” a clean according to him!
He will continue with his medication and wear the cone for another week to allow the next layer if stitches to do their job and then he will be back to his old self again 🐶
