Shelter News-March 2015


Young puppy with severe eye injury

A compassionate person found him on the street. He was in pain. Dr. Raja immediately gave him a painkiller injection.

“Pureheart” Supervisor Raja caressed and loved him as Dr.Raja prepared for surgery. 1½ months old. A real sweetie. The wound was probably inflicted by a dog bite, or he was hit by a two wheeler.The operation lasted ½ hour. Dr. Raja seated the eyeball in the socket and closed the lid.

I’m including it because we have shots of gentle Raja holding and reassuring him before the operation and the care he took in placing him in the cage, afterwards. Also, on the first video you see Dr. Raja injecting the anesthetic. It always amazes me how gently he gives the injections. The creatures he’s treating feel nothing.
