Critically injured dog healed & reunited with guardian
When our ambulance arrived the situation was heartbreaking. A young dog lay nearly unconscious with a horrifically wounded leg and a village woman sat beside him weeping in despair, fearing he would not survive.
His leg had been degloved in the accident, exposing the raw muscle beneath and he was in shock from the trauma and pain. His leg needed to be amputated as there was no possibility of a wound so extensive healing.
His devastated guardian escorted him to the ambulance, humbly pleading that we do everything possible to save him. We assured her that we would do everything in our power to heal him and bring him back to her soon.
The very next day we brought him into surgery and amputated his injured leg. Soon after he was up on all 3’s and feeling so much better. He spent the next several weeks healing and getting used to mobility on three legs. When he had fully recovered he was ready to go back to his guardian!
Reunited at last! Smiling from ear-to-ear, he ran to her and she met him with open arms.
