Eight Border Collie cross puppies were found abandoned
RSPCA Qld Inspectors are calling for information after eight Border Collie cross puppies were found dumped on the north side of Kev Hooper Memorial Park in Abelia Street, Inala on the evening of Wednesday August 22. They were in critical condition.
The litter was found by a member of the public and taken to the AEC 24 hour vet clinic in Wooloongabba. Sadly, it was already too late for one of the 5-week-old pups which was deceased upon arrival.
They were brought into the RSPCA Domestic Animal Hospital at Wacol yesterday for urgent treatment.
Sadly only three of the eight pups remain after four more pups succumbed to their illness yesterday.
The three remaining puppies are receiving round-the-clock care at the RSPCA. They are malnourished, suffering from hypothermia, conjunctivitis and life threatening Hookworm infestations. The next 48 hours are vital to their survival and they have an even longer fight ahead.
RSPCA Qld Lead Veterinarian Philippa Cox said, "We are hoping for the best but the sad reality is that some of the puppies may not respond to treatment. Further complications can arise which would result in emergency abdominal surgery. For now, it's hour by hour for these six tiny babies."
