Dog paralysed from car accident walks again
We got a call on our street animal rescue helpline from a caring person in Udaipur who informed us that a street dog in their neighborhood had been hit by a car earlier that day and was unable to stand.
When our rescue team reached, we found a confused and very anxious dog in the middle of the road with his hind legs coming out in front of him in a very abnormal position. He tried to move when our rescuers approached but his back legs dragged on the ground and he could only go a few feet.
He had suffered damage to his spine and urgently needed treatment and most of all rest to stabilize his spine. We brought him back to the Animal Aid hospital where his treatment and physical therapy would continue for the next five to six weeks.
It doesn’t happen very often but sometimes, when nerve damage is caught early and treatment is started right away, there can be reason to hope, and that’s what Georgie did. He hoped.
