Puppy recovers after almost dying from distemper

 In Blog, Hurt to Healed

We received a call on our helpline that a puppy who had been healthy and fine just a few days before was now collapsed on the side of the road, unable to stand or even move. When our ambulance reached we found her lying in the hot sun, her eyes almost closed shut from discharge.

The most beautiful part of rescuing this darling little girl was that even when she was collapsed on the side of the road, unable to move because of the disease distemper, she started wagging her tail the moment we approached. Distemper is an often fatal virus that affects young and frail dogs, and her condition was very critical. She was malnourished and there were wounds on her hips indicating that she had been unable to stand for several days. Back at Animal Aid, we started her on antibiotics to fight the infection and I.V. fluids, and to our sheer delight, within a few days she started to walk again.  After two weeks of intensive treatment, she has fully recovered.

    I would love to adopt this little soul (puppy almost dying from distemper). Do you have the animals out for adoption?

  • Jess

    Bless you guys for wonderful work.

    This is why I give to Animal Aid Unlimited! Here in Contra Costa County of California, the rescue teams would just put an animal to “sleep” if it had distemper. They would never put out the love required to heal the poor things. Mother Teresa said that the United States does not lack for anything, except LOVE. I give to you, and encourage others to give too, because you really have the love required to enact healing miracles!

    It was so sad to see this poor little dog left without any help on busy road, and nobody even looked at her… What is going to happen to her after finished treatment? Do you let dogs go again on streets or you try to find new home for those dogs? If only I could I would take her…

  • claudia romero

    Wonderful!! Distemper is a virus. Antibiotics would not have helped. How did you treat it? I’d be interested to know for The Ghosts of Aspropyrgos in Greece.
