Dogs and Animal Health Care in the Tropics

A few weeks ago, I talked about health care and our sick little Maxie-Dog: Animal Care and Health in the Tropics

Maxie before falling sick. Amazingly (to me) Maxie did recover although he could neither drink or eat for several days - and so I had to put him on an IV several times a day. That probably saved his live, in addition to a broad-spectrum antibiotic, a drug for theileriosis (nasty tick-borne disease), and an analgesic.

Maxie this AM - still quite thin, but filled with life and enthusiasm. Due to the pups (below picture) I'm keeping him on a sliding chain for a few days.

The following pix are of several of the new pups that Maxi is determined to play with.  But he’s still very weak.  Anyone want one or more pups? Their moms live at Hotel Club du Lac Tanganyika and they’re in very good condition.

Several of the pups (there are 9 in total) - in the back, having fun tearing the place apart.
