Abscess as big as balloon on street dog treated and healed

 In Blog, Hurt to Healed

We got a call to rescue a street dog in Udaipur who had developed a huge swelling under his chin over the period of about a week. A kind person in the neighborhood who feeds street dogs regularly had noticed the rapid swelling and called our helpline. The abscess was absolutely enormous–but that didn’t stop this waggy-tailed wonder from greeting his rescuers with a tremendous smile. We brought him back to Animal Aid’s hospital and began treatment with a surgical procedure to drain the melon sized mass of blood and pus–and yes, it was horrendous! but also so satisfying to relieve the pressure. Without treatment, the infection in the abscess could have led to blood poisoning (sepsis) and could have been deadly. Mango is a dog who loves to hug and he actually smiles—what a beautiful life to save!

Thank you deeply for your donation to save the street animals of India.
