Dog saved after almost bleeding to death
An adorable neighborhood dog had been bitten by another dog in a scuffle that almost took her life. Dogs often get into scraps with each other, and they are usually harmless or only result in a puncture wound, but this dear girl got a bite on her leg in just the wrong spot that cut right into her artery, causing severe and nearly fatal bleeding. She had found shelter in a home and when our rescuers arrived they were aghast to find her lying nearly unconscious in a pool of her own blood.
We rushed her back to our shelter and into surgery where we successfully stopped the bleeding.
Within less than a month of treatment and supportive care she had beautifully recovered, and after spaying her we returned her home to her neighborhood as good as new!
