He was so injured he couldn’t stand, but he still wagged his tail

 In Blog, Hurt to Healed

Compassionate Udaipur residents called our helpline in great distress to request the rescue of a much loved street dog in their neighborhood. We were told that he had been hit by a vehicle and had sustained serious injuries. When our ambulance arrived we found a gorgeous young dog sitting by the side of the road with a smear of blood on his forehead and desperation in his eyes. He didn’t get up or move when our ambulance arrived so we knew that he was too badly injured to move, but we couldn’t see just why. After our rescuer, Nandu, slowly approached and pet him, he gently lifted his hind leg and we were shocked to see the deep lacerations on his inner thigh and a large amount of blood loss.

Back at Animal Aid’s shelter we cleaned and bandaged the wounds and gave him pain killers, anti-inflammitories to reduce the swelling and promote healing, and anti-biotics to fight off infection. He was so traumatized, stressed and exhausted after the accident that he couldn’t even sit up any more–he was completely deflated body and soul. We kept him on IV fluids for several days since he had lost a lot of blood and also wasn’t eating or drinking enough, likely from the trauma and pain.

Slowly but surely as the days past he started to eat, and we were extremely relieved to see him stand on his own. Over the course of the next two months he grew stronger and his wounds healed beautifully.

Watch the video above to meet darling Goldie today, who is so happy to be healed!
