Elephant Recognizes Vet Who Saved His Life 12 Years Prior

Animals, just like humans, are emotional creatures and very sensitive. Though they cannot speak, they express themselves in other ways that are just as beautiful if not more. Plai Thang, this 31 year old elephant hailing from Thailand, was gravely ill in 2011. He managed to survive the terrible disease of trypanosomiasis all thanks to the care and treatment he received from his veterinarian, Pattaraapol Maneeon. This vet went above and beyond to careful and eventually same this gentle giant. Even if many years have passed, Plai Thang will never forget the treatment he received from his beloved vet. 

After months of treatment, Plai Thang was released into the forest. 12 years later, a beautiful reunion has occurred between the elephant and his vet. The meeting took place recently when Pattarapol was touring the area to which Plai Thang was released. The vet recognized the sound of an elephant and managed to call out to him in return. Plai Thang responded to his call and raised his trunk to Pattaraapol to express his recognition and gratitude. We love wholesome reunion stories like these. It fills us with positivity and good vibes!

Good Vibes Spotlight: Animal Welfare Society Of South Florida (Video)

Today we are bringing to your attention a wonderfully wholesome and uplifting story. No one expected a global pandemic, and on top of that, no one expected that it might influence their ability to afford vital veterinary care for their beloved pets. We feel for those affected by this situation, but some kind individuals at the Animal Welfare Society of South Florida decided to do something about it!

 According to Local10.com news: 'The Animal Welfare Society of South Florida has been helping pet owners since 1972. Most recently, Tiffany Acevedo and her family couldn't afford to help save Thor, their 6-year-old pit bull, after he developed an abdominal obstruction. The Animal Welfare Society gave them and thousands of other pet owners hope this year with the pet retention and compassionate care programs. Thor was able to get surgery and he is back to playing around with the family he loves.'

'They literally saved his life and my heart at the same time,' Acevedo said 

Awwmazing!

The Bees Are Back In Town: Next Stop Cats

Have you ever been stung by a bee? Oh boy do they hurt! Bee stings generally cause pain and swelling to various degrees depending on how individual each person or animal's body reacts. Our sweet silly kitties are well known for getting into all kinds of mischief. These shenanigan searcher outers often find themselves in some less than ideal situations that their owners must rescue them from. While the majority of cats are not allergic to bee stings therefore they are not fatal, it is super important to be on alert and try to avoid the situation all together.

However, IF your cat does get stung by a bee, it's important to react appropriately. Thanks to the Veterinary Centers of America, we have a conducive guide on how to handle the situation. According to the VCA, this is what you've got to do:

Step one: Soothe the bite site. Make a thick paste of baking soda and water and apply it to the sting site. If your cat has multiple stings or bites, a soothing oatmeal bath is the way to go.

Step two: Minimize swelling. Apply an ice pack to the affected area for 10 minutes to reduce swelling. A bag of frozen peas serves as a handy ice pack for individual bites. A cooled towel works better for larger areas.

 

Good luck!!

Prepare yourself for the most relatable video of all time for any cat lover. This person who has one of the greatest jobs in the world - a veterinarian assistant has apparently decided that she did no have enough alone time with her favorite fur ball. Now, being a vet assistant is a busy job, there are so many things to do, so... she had to get creative, and to be able to spend more time with this cat, she decided to just get inside of his cage with him. 

Wholesome cuddling between human and cat ensues, and out hearts are just about ready to melt already. This video is pure love, and that's exactly what we needed today.

Twitter User's Dog Gets 'Certificate Of Bravery' At The Vet's

Going to the vet is never easy for anyone involved. The face of your dog who thinks you're going on a walk when you start approaching your vet's clinic falling is a painful sight to most owners. But sometimes, it's necessary. And when our good boys and girls get through the treatment they need, you want nothing more than to tell them how good they did and spoil them silly. And this twitter user's dog got exactly what it deserved: a certificate of bravery. 

Honestly, we think more vets should give out stuff like this. I mean... even though we know our dogs can't read that and don't really understand it, it definitely makes us as owners feel better - both because we know our pupper earned it and because... well, we feel like we kinda earned it too. Going to the vet is stressful on us too lol.

A Day In The Life Of A Veterinarian: Cats Edition

Ever wondered what a day in the life of a veterinarian would look like? Well, wonder no more! One Imgur user that goes by grabboid10 has given us a glimpse into her world and it's filled with cats! 

Being a vet is probably every young animal lover's dream. We know it was ours when we were younglings. The only thing that stops a lot of us from moving forward with this dream is the realization that you'd be seeing a lot of sick animals. And sometimes, animals so sick there's really not much you can do. It's a heartbreaking thought but the animal-lovers that do follow this road are strong, and they are so brave. Thank you to all the vets out there who dedicate their lives to helping animals. Seriously, thank you. 

Recently, there was an AskReddit thread asking the vets of Reddit to share what they wish their clients knew, and it's very informative.

Today we're going on a tour into the day in the life of one veterinarian, cats edition. The following commentary is provided by Imgur user grabboid10:

"About their pet, the best one I know is one I heard a while ago: You have your life, your job, your friends, your family to provide your social interaction per day. Your dog only has YOU. Interact with your dog for more than five minutes per day and maybe your dog will not go out barking every five seconds."

Pet of the Month: Chloë, 13-year-old Maltese mix, In Need of Tumor Removal Surgery

ICanHasCheezburger? is proud to present and partner with The Waggle Foundation, in a Pet of the Month initiative

Each month, we will be featuring a pet in critical need and needs financial help to survive. We will share their story, their adorable photos, and their journey with the help of unbelievably kind strangers. 

The Waggle Foundation is a unique crowd-funding platform. Their mission is to help reduce economic euthanasia in pets. Unfortunately, because of financial struggles families cannot afford to help their beloved pets. That is where the Waggle Foundation steps in. They strive to help each and every pet in need, and just as their motto says "No pet parent should lose their best friend because of financial hardship."

And we couldn't agree more.

100% of donations to pets on the Waggle crowdfunding platform go directly to the veterinary providers administering care and never to the pet owners. This way, Waggle provides the safety and security for all donors in a way that other crowdfunding platforms cannot guarantee, and is reassured that the pet gets the help it needs.

And with that, we would like to present Chloë!

For more information -->https://wagglefoundation.org/donations/icanhascheezburger-chloe/
