Sompob was found at the Temple a week ago in a collapsed state crying pitifully in the long grass.  Thep and young Korn drove to the Temple, picked Sompob up put him in the back of the pick up truck with Korn sitting with him and rushed him to the vet.  He was given injections for pain, fever, vitamins and a range of other things and very soon perked up.  The vet warned us not to bring him to the Centre until we were sure he didn't have Distemper.  We felt sure he didn't as he rallied so quickly after his medication but returned him to the Temple with instructions to the monk who found him to call us immediately if he had a relapse.  2 days later he did.  Heike kindly took Sompob to the vet where he was put on a drip for 2 days.  We felt he wouldn't survive as he was so weak hardly opening his eyes and unable to move but Sompob is a fighter.  On the second day he started to eat a tiny amount of fish so he was brought to our Centre.  The vet still wasn't sure what his ailment was and unfortunately he doesn't have blood testing equipment but told us to treat him for blood parasites.  We felt that prognosis was very likely.and in any event was a good precautionary measure to take..  As soon as he arrived young Korn elected to feed him by hand and use a syringe for the Electrolyte solution he needed.  He did this 3 times a day under Thep's supervision.  The first night Sompob cried throughout the night and I was sure he would be dead in the morning but he wasn't.  Korn continued to care for him the following day and by the evening Sompob started to take some food out of his food bowl.  The third day I was very encouraged to see him lying with his head lifted from the floor where he's now lying as he fell off the bed.   He is now starting to drink a small amount of water.  Today Korn and his Father will return home and I told Korn to always remember how he helped Sompob to fight for his life with his care love.  Sompob is no beauty having lived in the Temple for some 2 years and so timid no-one could get near him.  He suffers from mange, has never been treated for parasites of any kind and has never been vaccinated.  That didn't deter young Korn from caring for this critically sick scabby dog.  Sompob is still very ill and needs a lot of medication to help pull him through his crises.  Doxycycline, blood booster meds, vitamins, liver tonic are just some of the medication he will need for at least 4 to 6 weeks.  We have high hopes that we got him to the vet in time to stop any brain or muscle damage and that he will be able to walk again.  Please help us to help pull Sompob through his critical condition.
