Vietnam: He Survived A Slaughterhouse

A call for help was launched about a stricken dog in Hue, in central Vietnam. The dog had escaped a slaughterhouse with his mouth was bound tightly shut, stopping him from eating or drinking. The flesh on his face under the bindings had rotted off, including half his tongue being severed off. His left eye was glued shut with pus. His rear end was blood stained and the fur appeared to be peeling off.

An experienced rescuer in Hue, named Son, answered the call for help. He went out into the night and gently captured the distressed dog. Son immediately consulted with doctors for the best way to save the dog’s life.

We have named the dog Cooper.

Cooper may have been inside an iron dog meat cage crammed full of dogs. As you scroll down the page you will see photos of Cooper’s lower body covered in bite marks from other dogs. This happens inside loaded dog meat cages. As panic sets in, alpha dogs lash out demanding more space but there is no space to give. Cooper has those same severe bite marks all over his rump, lower legs and paws. The bite wounds had become infected and filled with pus.

Fight Dog Meat is going to fight to save Cooper.
He’s already suffered enough and deserves a chance at happiness.

Cooper’s Initial Vet Report:

Cooper’s body is severely weakened.
He’s suffering with severe blood parasites (from brown ticks.)
He has severe muzzle damage with the flesh rotted down to his bare facial bones.
Part of his tongue has been cut off.
His rear end has severe septic injuries.
All four paws are damaged.
His right thigh has a large and deep open wound.
Fight Dog Meat has arranged a wonderful life for Cooper. He just doesn’t know it yet.

When Cooper’s body is strong enough, Fight Dog Meat will fly him from Hue to Saigon. We’ll continue his hospitalization at Dr. Nghia’s vet hospital. Fight Dog Meat will adopt Cooper to a loving family abroad so he can live a happy life wrapped in love and safety.

The following photos were taken after Cooper was admitted into hospital. He was sedated to allow vets to work as quickly as possible to remove his bindings and shave his coat. They put fluids into him and administered pain relief., pet centric, Fight Dog Meat, fightdogmeat

We look forward to Cooper recovering and discovering that he has a wonderful new life to live, filled with happiness and love. We just need him to get well.

In Conclusion

Vietnamese animal lovers want the world to know what is happening to animals inside Vietnam. They’re desperate for animal protection laws but their cries fall on deaf ears of their government. Fight Dog Meat is exposing events taking place to help strengthen the voice of animal lovers in Vietnam.

Worldwide outrage is necessary for governments to take notice. We are pressuring governments by being a voice for these animals. Ultimately it is animal lovers living in these countries whom their own government will be forced to listen to, to enact positive change.

Fight Dog Meat will continue to bring you reports from Vietnam and the wonderful work their rescuers are doing.
