Another Update On Kenneth – Dog whose snout was sliced off.

Comments Off on Another Update On Kenneth – Dog whose snout was sliced off.

“Another update on Kenneth, he looks great, I always knew he was going to be good looking, so pleased he has his cute face back”

“Remember what he looked like this before the operation….

“Someone had sliced right through his snout with a very sharp knife or machete. The poor dog wandered for several days before a kind person rescued him. The perpetrator has still not been found either…nasty viscous pig…to purposefully do that to a dog, then kick it out onto the streets!”

Photo original description from Dr. Guille

“Kenneth with his Innocent look….before trying to steal his neighbours food through the cage….”

UPDATE on Kenneth; October 17, 2012, From Dr. Guille Zialcita:

“We have removed his fluids for the mean time as we would like to give him a bit more freedom to move around.

Also we have discovered that he has been able to pull a couple of his stitches on the hard palate today and thus we will be scheduling him for another surgery to repair the tissue that is separated because of his movement.

Unfortunately this is a common complication in oral surgeries because the dogs are bothered by the sutures inside the mouth and their tongue plays around with the suture,and we were expecting some form of complication, the surgery will be scheduled for this Saturday, October 20 , 2012

We will post the updates daily on his progress, but he continues to improve daily and he is wanting to play more and more.”

“Many thanks to all who donated, you helped to give this dog back his good looks…It sickens me to think how anyone could hurt a cute face like. “

Comments Off on UPDATE: Kenneth the Dog Whose Face Was Almost Sliced Off Has Had His Re-Construction Surgery

“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!” 

Many thanks to the team at IRO  (Island Rescue Organization) & CSDC (Cebu South Dog Club) for making this happen!

“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.

Kenneth’s first PUBLIC post surgery photo. Taken October 9, 2012. 16 Hours After his successful re-construction surgical operation (surgery was made on October 8, 2012; around 6PM PH Time, +8 GMT).

Kenneth after surgery!

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.
