DAVIS, Calif. (AP) — A veterinarian at the University of California, Davis, has some good news about a dog from the Philippines who became an international hero after sacrificing her snout to save two young girls.
Veterinarian Gina Davis tells the San Francisco Chronicle the dog named Kabang appears to have beaten the cancer she was suffering from.
Kabang, however, is still facing treatment for heartworms in her arteries before she can have the gaping wound on her face closed.
Newspapers in the Philippines have reported that Kabang had her snout and upper jaw sheared off when she jumped in front of a speeding motorcycle, saving her owner’s daughter and niece who were apparently about to be hit.
Kabang ended up in Davis earlier this year after a nurse from Buffalo, N.Y., spearheaded a fundraising campaign to bring her to the U.S.
