Meet 9 mo Smokey pictured here before what would be the most tragic of circumstances.
Smokey’s young Mum Jennifer was living with her family in Langwarrin. The family took in a boarder who set fire to the house in his room.
The house burnt down and during the fire little Smokey tragically received burns to his paws, ears and back.
Having lost everything Jennifer couldn’t afford the cost of veterinary care but today realised little Smokey desperately needed help. Carrum Downs Vet contacted Pet Medical Crisis to see if we could support this little guy for his Mum. Smokey has 3rd degree burns to all 4 paws and multiple lacerations and burns.
With a $900 donation from Pet Medical Crisis, Smokey had his wounds cleaned under anaesthetic and silvadine burn cream applied to his paws and wounds. Smokey made a full recovery thanks to PMC.
Pet Medical Crisis relies on public donations to assist pensioners and disadvantaged owners who cannot afford life-saving veterinary care.
