You've got mail!

Hero's first ever package. This is insane! It's alot of stuff and would last us a really really long time. Extremely touched. Thank you so much @dodothepapillonxcorgi (who are total strangers before we got connected through this incident) and also to all the people liking and commenting. We read everything and this experience has really been out of the world to us. Hero was sooo excited about this package!!

Our previous campaign update mentioned that we were planning to get fences for Hero because his cage is super small. Thanks to a kind lady who donated her crate, Hero now has much spacious crate just right before school reopens tomorrow. This way hero can be much more comfortable when we cannot be there for him. So relieved and so grateful. 🐶

😱 GOOD NEWS! 😱


Big sis came back and being overexcited, Hero actually stood up by himself and walked a few steps before collapsing back down!! So stunned by his progress. Yesterday we saw him trying to walk, but he was doing it with his knees, like a baby's crawl. Unfortunately we always miss out on capturing all these. But we will definitely share if we do!!

On the other hand while Hero is making excellent progress (thankfully!!) I've got a really upsetting news too.



I personally know this dog and her owner and Having gone through all these I definitely feel her pain. She is also of similar age as me, 24/25, with two younger siblings.

An accident happened to her 6 year old shihtzu when she left her dog in the care of her relative while her family made a trip back to visit her grandma in Taiwan. Her dog actually fell down from the second storey of a HDB flat and have a complete fracture in the front right leg. The vet has advised for a surgery, est to cost $7k (!!!), as her situation requires a specialist to operate.

If possible, we would also like to donate some money to her campaign as well since Hero cannot do the surgery. We might still need the money for physiotherapy or additional consultations for Hero but we do feel that Mimo's situation is quite in need of help as well.

The situation is quite sensitive as the money we have collected over the past few days definitely do not belong to us. We also try to be super open and clear about how the funds are used. As of now we still want to channel our energy and the funds to help Hero first. Hero's campaign has stopped as we have raised more than we now need. We also did think of donating the excess to another similar campaign if we have.

Please help if you can.

Any advice is also welcomed. Thank you for all the support so far. It has been really amazing. Through all these we have become inspired to help others in need too 🐶

Hi, As previously mentioned by my sister, based on the analysis of the CT scan result, Hero was advised not to undergo surgery, hence we have stopped the crowdfunding as of 6 January 2017. A portion of the amount raised through Stripe, Paypal and Off Line was used for his vet visits & hospitalization fees. As Hero has not recovered, the leftover portion will be used for his further follow ups for Hero (Updated in #9). The balance amount we received will be donated to other dogs if Hero recovers (updated in later stage). His recovery will be a long process. Thank you for looking after Hero's condition closely and we will keep you guys updated with the various information as often as possible.

I will be updating on all the financial related portions soon:

  • Detailed Information on the Stripe amount raised
  • Detailed Information on the Paypal amount raised
  • Detailed Information on the offline amount (with Donors' names) raised
  • Detailed Information on the receipts & balance amount.
  • Finally, If there's remaining, we will update on how we donate them to other dogs in need.

First, below is the detailed update for Stripe

Information for Stripe:

Donated through Gogetfunding online via Master Card or Visa Card

The below table shows that we have raised a total of $5,749.33 via Stripe.

Update posted by Yu Rong Pang On Jan 06, 2017

Sorry for the delayed update on this platform. We have posted regularly on his instagram but have neglected this website. Here's the update for the past few days! The next post will elaborate on the costs.

Hero was discharged on New Year's Eve (31/12/2016) because he was responding well to the lowered dosage of painkillers. The vet gave us some anti-inflammatory medicine lasting 3 days for us to bring home and also some painkillers, given only if needed. The vet technician taught us how to perform physiotherapy at home. Hero's painkiller patch on his back placed on 30/12/2016 was also to last for another 4 days but we eventually removed it after 2 days as he started to develop rash. The recommendation from the vet is that since surgery cannot be done, conservative care is recommended, which means anti-inflammatory and perhaps physiotherapy or getting a wheelchair if he still cannot walk.

When we brought Hero back on that day itself, he was really happy. We first brought him out to the park just outside and he could pee voluntarily. This means that his condition is really no longer fatal or critical as he can eliminate himself. The only issue is that he needs maybe a lot of time to regain strength in his hind legs and there is no promise that he can walk or run again, but of course we still carry that hope and will do all we can.

Every night he usually sleeps with us on our bed.

On 02/01/2017, Hero completed his medication and we started to feed him some leftover nerve supplements (from first doctor) and also a placenta supplement given by a kind personal friend through his daily meals.


We also bathed him and he actually fell asleep a few times cos it was that enjoyable. This is Hero after his bath:

Hero is getting better day by day as we observe more bending and voluntary movements in the hind legs.


For instance, he bends his knees before pooping when we bring him downstairs. His feet is also no longer that jelly and tends to land on his paw pad unlike last time when it is always flipped.

We also caught him scratching himself with his hind legs a few times, although it is quite slow.

Also, just to mention, Hero cannot really move on his own hence we decided to not cage him all the time as our cage is really small (used when he was a puppy). Instead, he is usually napping on the ground or bed or sofa with supervision. We only placed him in the cage when no one is around. We are getting a plastic fence this Sunday (08/02/2017) since school is starting soon and he might need to be contained for longer hours.

Moving forward, we also had various alternative methods recommended by various people, one of which is to see a bone specialist, Dr Sue from The Animal Clinic @ Katong. We are also considering physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, accupuncture or some supplements to help in his recovery.

The vet called in the yesterday morning and said that Hero's condition is improving, albeit slow. In the hospital there are apparently 6 other cases of spinal issues. Compared to the other cases, Hero's progress is slightly slower as unlike the other cases, they all had undergone surgery whereas Hero's the only one that surgery was not recommended. At 11am yesterday (30th Dec), they took off the IV drip that had a stronger painkiller and also anti-inflammatory medicine and instead reduced the amount of painkillers, now a patch on his back. The reduction of the painkiller is also better for Hero. Anti-inflammatory medication will still be given orally. They recommended 2 more days of hospitalisation to monitor how Hero responds to the reduction in painkillers.

We visited Hero on two sessions yesterday (1-2pm and 5.30-7.30pm), maxing out the visiting hours. We tried to give him loads of love and comfort and also groomed him and he really enjoyed it. His feet do respond slightly when I brush it. The left hind leg is still less responsive than the right one. His hind legs are also yellow from his pee, could not wipe it off but it's ok we will clean him when he returns home!

Hero is really calm now, but seems to be also less energetic. But based on some comments, it could be a aftereffect of painkillers.

We will visit him again during the visitation hours from 2-4pm later on. Thank you for your support!! (:
