This shy little dog was seen by Dr. Freddy Kalonji for the treatment of a blepharitis (inflammation of the eyelids).
The dog's story is a very touching one since he was misdiagnosed with a congenital spine malformation by an other veterinarian who even suggested to euthanize the dog. Luckily Dr. Freddy Kalonji was given the opportunity to examine the dog. The dog didn't suffer from a spine malformation but from a simple respiratory infection!

The world rabies day is a global opportunity for people to focus on rabies prevention. It's a day of activism and awareness.
Rabies is one of the deadliest diseases in the world. Each year it kills more than 70'000 people - mostly children in developing countries such as the DRC. Dogs are the main carriers of rabies:
over 95% of human cases of rabies are due to bites from infected dogs. Mass vaccination of dogs is the most effective method to permanently interrupt the disease's infectious cycle between
