This is tocky a 4 month pup brought in with hemorrhagic diarrhoea and vomiting. Tocky was so weak on admission that as we attempted to get an IV line in, he collapsed and gave a couple of agonal like gasps. Fearing the worst we chatted to his owner to explain the poor prognosis and that we may have to consider euthanasia. To our astonishment and a testament to the hardiness of Botswana dogs Tocky turned the corner overnight and little by little went on to make a full recovery he’ll be neutered soon. A remarkable dog as hardy as he is cute.
