Dear Dr. Chan,

Hi there! I’ve been independently rescuing strays/newborns for a few years now and recently learned about My Animal Care from my regular veterinary clinic.
I’m writing in to ask for your kind consideration for a subsidy for my latest rescue – a family of four kittens (all male) whom I rescued from the back alley of where I live.
I’ve also attempted to trap their mom and bring her for neutering, but up until today, I’ve not been able to gain her trust enough for me carry her. But her kittens are more trusting and when they were first rescued, they were down with cold, diarrhea and one of them (the ginger kitty) had a really bad eye infection.

They have been with me for about six months now and they have been vaccinated (2 jabs) and recently neutered. With the help of the vet, I’ve attached with this email before and after pictures, as well as the receipt for their neutering procedure.
I’m determined to find homes for these kittens, a pet finder profile was created back in August 2014 for potential adopters. There’s a screen shot as proof attached.
I’m not extremely active in the field / affiliated with independent rescue homes/independent rescuers, but I’ve done quite a bit of rescue, rehabilitate and re-home on my own in the past, and I’ve found it very challenging to re-home strays (especially local domesticate cats/kittens), those who I’ve not been able to re-home still remains under my care. I am currently taking care of 8 cats, 4 kittens (latest rescue) and a 1 year old puppy.
Here are some of my past rescues:
4. Puppies (status – some deceased due to fever, some re-homed) -
6. Scruffy, rescued puppy, temporarily fostered by another fosterer -
I hope the above would give you the confidence that I am indeed true with my intentions to help street animals that I’ve crossed path with.
Should you require further details, please do not hesitate to get in touch. Thank you!
Kind Regards,

Firecrackers and “fire bombs”

During this festive season, it’s not just firecrackers that are frightening the animals, but also “fire bombs” which really sound like bombs exploding.


We’re so scared…

In “gopher pose”, which usually means they are afraid.

Everyone would be huddled together, hiding behind the door or under the bench….


….except Indy.

Who’s afraid?? Me??

Ginger’s allergic reaction

It started about 3 weeks ago with a small red patch on the neck below the right ear.


The skin would turn red and it looked inflamed, but there was no puncture of any kind. I sprayed Path-Away and the next day, it would dry up, a scab would form, but the patch gradually grew bigger.


 It starts as a red patch, then dries up, covered with a scab.

So off we went to the vet’s. The vet said it looked like a scratch wound and suspected that it could be due to an ear infection which made Ginger scratch below the ear. True enough, that right ear had a lot of dirt in it. However, when the dirt was examined under the microscope, no mites were found. The vet cleaned both ears and told me to continue applying Path-Away. After two days, I was to apply Revolution spot-on. The vet didn’t think it was anything serious.

The redness decreased, but the patch continued to grow bigger.

So after a week, we went to see another vet. Wood’s Lamp was used to check for fungus and there was none. Then, three skin swabs were done and again, nothing could be found. Another swab was done to check for demodex and that was negative too.

It’s so strange.

The vet concluded that it could be due to the ear infection as well as an allergic reaction of the skin. It didn’t look that bad, actually. It wasn’t red or inflamed, but the bald patch just continued to grow every day.

mini-PA190543The three patches where the skin swab was done. The rest of the skin looked okay; just that it was balding.

The vet prescribed a course of steroids (for the itching) and the antibiotic Clavomox. We were to go back in 5 days’ time. An antifungal and antibacterial ear-drop was prescribed as well and this was to be used in both ears as well as on the balding patch.

Today is the 5th day and we went back for a check-up.

Another cytology (skin swab) was done today to rule out ringworm or fungus. Nothing was found in the skin swab again. So the vet said to continue with the tapering down of the steroids and to finish the 14 day course of antibiotics. If all goes well, we will go back for another check-up in 2 weeks’ time.


The fur is starting to grow back in middle of the whole patch.

We measured the bald patch – it’s about 4 cm by 5 cm. The vet said it looks like it’s already on the mend.


I hope Ginger gets well soon.

The balding patch does not seem to bother him much.

His appetite is good and he’s active and cheerful, as usual.

Dear Dr.Chan,

I’ve got good news! Valentine was adopted on Sunday’s (19/10/2014) adoption drive. The adopter came with her whole family (husband, father-in-law, son & daughter). She first notice Valentine and praise that he’s very handsome. She then look around at the other dogs and came back 1min later and confirm she want to adopt Valentine. The whole family are dog lovers. Both the son & daughter (age 7-10)  begged the mother to let them adopt 2 puppies. But the mother told them they are adopting Valentine for now and will come back next time to adopt more ^_^

I’m overjoy that Valentine found a forever loving home! I couldn’t ask for more. I will keep close contact with them and make sure they come back to adopt more.

Thank you for sharing ^_^

Best regards,
Jessy Lian

Bunny and his Happy Earth herbs

It’s been almost three weeks that Bunny started on his Happy Earth Chinese herbs to address his frequent vomiting problem. The herbs are supposed to strengthen his stomach and spleen qi (energy).

As with all herbs, it takes time to work, so from frequent vomiting, it gradually decreased to vomiting once every 3 days and now his condition seems to be improving.

He just needs a small pinch of the herbal powder twice daily, taken with his food. It’s not a problem in feeding Bunny as Bunny likes to eat.
