For stray animals, finding food, water and shelter is always a challenge. They must navigate the busy world around them, all by themselves. A dog was trying to find food when he was hit by a car. Since he didn’t have any human to take care of him, the only thing he could do was s.u.f.er alone.
The injured dog found an old abandoned house. He stayed in the same place in the dirty old house for five days, crying out for help or for death to come quickly.
The pain from him was unimaginable. Finally, someone heard the dog’s cry and made some calls. A local rescuer came to the house and couldn’t believe how hard the poor pup was struggling.
The local rescuer stepped forward and decided that he would take care of the dog despite his serious condition. What surprised the rescuer was the pain the dog was suffering and the time he had not eaten or drunk…
but when they got him into the vehicle, he looked at the kind man and smiled. Despite so much pain and uncertainty, the dog understood that he now had a real fighting chance.
Once they got to the vet, the dog tested positive for parasites in his blood. Fortunately, these could be treated with medication. But the vet and staff were understandably overwhelmed by the dog’s inability to move. Tests revealed that the dog had extensive nerve damage and it was unclear if he would walk again.
The local rescue team and the vet staff came together to help this dog. Physiotherapy was the best option for him. If they could get his body to move, his nerve damage might improve. By using a sling, veterinary staff and volunteers strive to help the dog retrieve his body. And the brave canine warrior loves every minute of it.
Although all this hard work takes its toll on the dog’s body, he doesn’t care. He has a strong character and is very sweet. He, too, is not used to humans paying attention to him. He finally feels special, because he always has been!
To say that he was on the verge of death is an understatement. He would have perished alone in that old house, but now he is surrounded by kind people, excellent medical care, and all the food and water he needs. His future looks bright. Every day he progresses further and further and the vet is sure he will walk again.
