One day after treatment, Siu Bak Bak’s temperature was low. We cleaned his wound with barely any resistance from him. Treatment was administered and we tried to keep him as warm and comfortable as we could. It was fortunate that he ate some of the soft canned food we fed him with.
The good Samaritans, who brought him in to seek treatment, visited in the afternoon and spent some quality time with him.
Siu Bak Bak improved amazingly once his temperature went up! He has been ravenous and was getting up to look for more food. His blood test result has also improved. However, the huge wound on his right hip region may have to be surgically cleaned up further. Hopefully, he would not lose his tail.

Daily wound cleaning were mandatory to reduce infection and encourage new skin cells to form. Siu Bak Bak had to be hand fed daily to keep his weight consistent. His
appetite has been poor and the lack of exercise has led to the loss of muscle mass.

Siu Bak Bak continues to tolerate his daily wound cleaning patiently. The route to recovery will be long but it is heartening to see his progression from day 1 till now.
