Meet 'Tiger', this lovely dog was brought in by a young lady called Flora (the granddaughter of Tiger's owner) so that Tiger could receive her free rabies vaccination offered by our Mission Rabies colleagues at a local primary school in Zomba. Tiger's owners had noticed a big lump on her abdomen for a while (and has suspected that this was a tumour) and had even gone to see a paravet, but they couldn't afford the treatment that was offered.
Dr. Dagmar Mayer operated on Tiger and she found parts of Tiger's intestine and uterus inside the hernial sac. Dagmar repaired Tiger's hernia and also sterilised her too. When Tiger woke up from her operation, the WVS vehicle brought her back home to her owners, it was already dark by then, we pulled up in their street and brought our Tiger. Lots of neighbours came out to see what's going on and were amazed that Flora and the dog were dropped off at home by WVS! Flora's grandparents are so happy that Tiger will make a full recovery.
