Kabang, the snout-less mutt from the Philippines credited with saving the lives of two young girls last year, relaxes in his caregiver's yard. She has been treated by veterinarians at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine and will be heading back to the Philippines in the near future. Kabang arrived at the UC Davis Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital on October 11, 2012, after a long journey from her native Philippines. She presented with pre-existing health conditions that significantly delayed her dental and facial surgeries. As the treatments for those conditions were successfully completed in February 2013, she proceeded on to her dental and facial surgeries in March 2013. Kabang came through both of those surgeries successfully and has been cared for by veterinary technician Dawn Gillette who owns and operates All Species Animal Care in Woodland, CA.
