Mogwai is one of the luckiest Pugs in the world. The day she was due to be euthanased at a Perth shelter, her now owners, the Deighton family took her into their home to give her another chance in life. And... that's not the only lucky thing that happened, Mogwai's new parents noticed that she was having trouble urinating and were concerned there was a problem.
In the meantime Mogwai was given a course of antibiotics and prescribed a specially formulated diet, Hills Canine C/d. This diet assists by dissolving the stone, and in this case would only provide temporary assistance for the problem.
During Dr Wayne's initial physical examination he also noticed that Mogwai's teeth were in very poor health. To prevent further problems he recommended that we undertake some dentistry work whilst she was under an anaesthetic.
That wasn't the last of her problems; Mogwai had previously suffered from a bad flea infestation which had caused a secondary infection. Mogwai's parents were given a medicated shampoo to bathe her in which would help provide relief. The antibiotics would also help to clear the infection.
Mogwai has since been back into see us and her parents tell us she is very happy and bright and a completely different dog to the one they first brought home.
