Rescue of a wounded dog found dying on the side of the street
Our rescuers found him lying on the side of the street, terribly wounded and broken. The side of his head was being eaten by maggots and his body had given up all hope. We could tell that he had been lying in the same place for many hours if not days, and we believe that if we hadn’t rescued him right when we did, that is where he would have died.
We rushed him back to Animal Aid Unlimited’s shelter and began his treatment: IV fluids to treat his dehydration, antibiotics for the infection and we applied medicine into his wound to kill the maggots.
In the following days our old boy grew stronger, he ate well, and his wound started to heal. When we rescued him he was also suffering from mange, a skin condition, and that too healed with weekly medicated baths.
After several months of treatment, you will have trouble recognizing this handsome fella who we named Major Sahib in honor of his incredibly valiant spirit.
Please donate for the intensive care of wounded street animals in India who, like Major Sahib, aren’t ready to say goodbye.
