We got a call to rescue a dog stuck in a gate. But when we arrived, our rescuers found an old dog in much more serious trouble. Not only was she completely stuck between very narrow bars in a gate, but she had massive maggot infested wounds on her backside. Unable to pull her body through the bars or pry them open, we had to call in a metal cutter and have him cut one of the bars off the gate.
Once we got her back to the shelter, we began treating her wounds, started fluids for her dehydration, antibiotics and pain medication. Her wounds were severe, and with her old age recovery would be an uphill battle. But Dotty is a brave, spirited little lady, and she wasn’t about to give up.
