“Update on beautiful Kenneth….Oh this truly is wonderful to see, I knew they would be able to repair his face & make him beautiful again. I made a small donation via ChipIn, it’s so gratifying to see that any money donated has been spent on making Kenneth beautiful again of course there is all the after care medications to think of too. If surgery is done Pro-Bono, then donations will be used for medical attention, medications, supplies etc. Thank you to anyone who donated, doesn’t it feel great to know you played a small part in making his surgery possible; & giving Kenneth his life back. Not sure if he will remain with the person that rescued him.
“Now all they need to do is find the evil POS that did this to Kenneth!”
“Kenneth send his LOVE to all who made this possible!”
ERRATUM: the date on the PHOTO should be October 9, 2012, NOT as posted as October “7”. We sincerely apologize for the error.
This is the SAME photo we have furnished the press/media today October 9,2012. we fervently hope for the understanding of the press for not letting them go inside Kenneth’s recovery room. we refrained unnecessary visits of Kenneth to avoid changes in his stress level.
UPDATE Oct. 9 , 2012; 11AM PH TIME (+8 GMT)
Statement from Nena Hernandez, IRO President:
Post surgical update on Kenneth: He ate very well this morning. Kenneth tried to take off his bandages and in the process some of his stitches got out.
Dr. Ivy Alvarez-Zialcita (Animal Wellness Veterinary Hospital) then decided to staple that section and not put the bandages that way he won’t try to take it off and in the process his stitches would be removed.
He is using an Elizabethan collar so that he doesn’t attempt to remove any more stitches. He is also being sedated to facilitate his healing. He is breathing through one nostril because the other nostril is swollen. Once the swelling subsides, he will be able to breath through that nostril.
He is getting annoyed of the process, again which is normal and a good sign, but Doc Ivy said he is a good boy. No personal visits of Kenneth is allowed except IRO (Island Rescue Organization) and CSDC (Cebu South Dog Club) officers. There is a press conference tomorrow October 10, 2012 @4PM in Animal Wellness Veterinary Clinic.
