Thank you, U.P. Veterinary Teaching Hospital!

In the middle of February, One Valenzuela noticed that their furball, Bell, has cloudy eyes. This was quite unusual and so she googled for some information regarding the said condition. The internet did gave answers, a looot of answers, which definitely made her a bit uneasy and worried about their canine bunso.  

Notice those cloudy eyes? Bell was still as active as ever but then her "cataract like" eye condition is troubling. A week before this happened, One Valenzuela observed Bell having an increased amount of muta (eye secretions). 
With no further delay, off they went to the University of the Philippines Veterinary Teaching Hospital. They travelled via public transportation. Good thing, Bell is used to travelling and meeting other people.

We had a long night hunting for food. Don't disturb us. :)
Cases are handled by veterinary students under the supervision of a veterinarian. Can I insert "awesome" somewhere in the middle and in the end of the first sentence?
After checking on Bell's body and a complete blood count (CBC) test (consultation fee is Php150.00; CBC test is at Php300.00-got the results in less than two hours), the veterinarian explained that One Valenzuela's furkid has a low platelet count which is caused by tick bite/s (garapata in Filipino). It is called ehrlichiosis, a dengue like disease among dogs. An article from the Makati Dog and Cat Hospital site discusses more about the symptoms: "the most common signs that owners observe are weakness, loss of appetite (even with their favorite meal!). There are a number of dogs with a lot of eye secretion aka ‘muta’. If you check their gums and the inside of their ears, you could see that it’s relatively pale from the original pinkish color. All these signs are brought about by low red blood cell count and its components, low platelet and most of the time high white blood cell count." 

"Bestfriends", monument in fiberglass, by Glenn A. Cagandahan. It depicts a man sitting on his knee while caressing a dog. The design conveys that man and animal are created equal. This connotes that while animal provides unconditional love and companionship, owning them means taking on the responsibility to care for them throughout their lives. 
Bell was given medications which she took for 14 days. On their second check up, her blood test has improved yet she has to continue her antibiotic together with a supplement. On their third visit this March, Bell is given a clean bill of health. Hooray!
  
"O, graduate ka na!" the vet said. See how happy Bell is after her third visit.
One Valenzuela would like to thank the soon-to-be veterinarians of U.P. Veterinary Teaching Hospital who handled Bell's case. She also want to extend her special appreciation  to Dr. Rouchelle, a super friendly and zealous veterinarian whom Bell definitely got cozy with. Salamat po ng marami!

Getting there:
From Brgy. Malinta, ride an EDSA bound bus (Php23.00). Go down SM North EDSA and find the jeepney terminal. Hop on a jeepney going to U.P. Diliman (Php11.00). Ask the driver to drop you at Checkpoint. Turn right at Emilio Jacinto Street. U.P. Veterinary Teaching Hospital can be found a few meters near the College of Fine Arts.

Ride a jeepney at SM North EDSA with the signage U.P. Diliman.

    1. Iba yata yung binigay kay Bell noon. If I am not mistaken, doxycycline hyclate (will check again in her records). Nilalagay ko sa loob ng keso para lunukin nalang niya. May drops para sa mata kaso di naman namin nagamit fully kasi ayaw ni Bell. Hope everything eventually go well with your furkid. Pa-update po ha. ^_^

    1. It took us around 3 visits to the vet. Kaso magana kumain si Bell all the while, well, kahit anong ipakain namin gusto naman niya. Natural behavior na yata niya yun. Orijen ang dogfood niya, pero binibigyan ko rin siya ng boiled Super Bite kapag nagsawa na.
