My mum did the applique of the bunny and the flowerpot and I tried my hand at the green grass! It’s not easy, because the canvas is so thick!

Dear Dr Chan,
Good day, I am Teoh Wei Kheng, student from UTM. This is my first encounter to this program which I get to know from Mr. Chai who has recently emailed you. I would like to apply subsidy for neutering of a stray female cat on 21th of August 2014.
The cat we named as Gaga. She delivered two cute little kittens about 3 months ago at our faculty building. Due to the inconvenience at our faculty building (near laboratories with high exposure to chemicals), it is not suitable for Gaga and the kittens staying over there. Thus we plan to neuter Gaga before relocate her to hostel area meanwhile our friends had adopt the kittens already.
I am pleased to attach all the required documents for your consideration and will send the original receipt and application form by post this week. Thanks
p/s Thanks again for all the efforts for the strays
Regards,
Wei Kheng

Good morning Dr. Chan. Hope you’re in the pinkest of health. I would like to share with you a spaying/neutering campaign by 2 clinics located in Puncak Jalil. If I am not mistaken, the campaign is going to be done in 2 phases. First is for pets and second is for strays. You can direct the questions to Misi Gojes (read: gorgeous.  ) who is managing the page Helo Vet Disini:

Here are some of the ad he created for the campaign. Some are downright hillarious, but I do think it drives the messge home.. 
And yes, there are haters comments as well. Oh, the ads are in Bahasa Malaysia.

A TCM treatment for a poodle’s skin problem

My friend, JC, has been coping with her adopted poodle, Siew Mai’s, skin problem for many, many months now. JC has taken Siew Mai to three vets now and I even accompanied them on one such trip. Siew Mai has been prescribed all kinds of allopathic medicine but to no avail.

IMG-20140731-WA0000

Poor Siew Mai feeling very down and depressed during the months of treatment.

long time ago

Siew Mai’s skin has red patches, is itchy, and sometimes, it even turns blackish.

IMG-20140815-WA0003

 Being on the e-collar to prevent him from scratching and biting.

Vets suggested it could be due to an allergy, or fungus. So as with allopathic treatment, all kinds of medicines and creams (including steroids) have been prescribed and JC has tried them all on Siew Mai. Siew Mai began to have poor appetite and was often depressed.

Recently, I managed to find a vet who also practises Traditional Chinese Medicine as part of her practice. JC took Siew Mai for a consultation. The vet prescribed Chinese herbal medicine (in powder form) and a change of diet. The (home-cooked) diet was a recipe specially formulated for Siew Mai’s condition.

Within days, JC saw improvement in Siew Mai’s skin condition.

23rd Aug

This photo was taken on 23rd August. The blackish parts improved tremendously within days of the diet change and herbal medicine.

And the best thing is, Siew Mai loves his new diet!

26th Aug

 This photo was taken today (26th August) and according to JC, Siew Mai’s appetite has improved a lot too!

We hope Siew Mai continues to heal!

hello dr chan
this cat is called gegurl. she has quite a long story. she originally fostered by some other fosterer. we get to know her because there’s 2 newly born kitten in my house (at that particular time, i wasnt around). so wana seek help to publish for foster mom for the 2 kittens.
after the shout out, the original fosterer of gegurl responded and informed that her fostered cat, gegurl had babies and can try to give the 2 kittens to gegurl to see whether does she accept that kittens. and yes gegurl did and nursed the 2 new kittens.
then later the original fosterer had some problem with the house, i cant really remember the details but at the end, gegurl is with me now :)
so sending her for neutering. her own kittens have been adopted, the 2 kittens that she helped to nurse are also with me
thank you for the subsidy.

It has arrived!

After the nightmarish experience with the courier service over the Rainbow Horses, I held my breath (figuratively) as I posted the “Remembering Pei Pei” bag to Ms Cindy Lim yesterday. I had asked Cindy if she would prefer to collect the bag herself as this is a very special bag for her and if it gets lost, it’s not going to be easy to make another one. But Cindy had more trust in the courier service than I did!

And so, after 24 hours of figuratively holding my breath and tracking the consignment through its website, it has finally arrived, safe and sound!

From Cindy’s Facebook wall:

Below are photos shared by Cindy:

Trust a dog to think of creative ways to “wear” a bag!

It can even be used as a bib!

 Humans can only think of one way.

Thank you for sharing your photos, Cindy!
