Incredible recovery of dog dying in sewage gutter

 In Blog, Hurt to Healed

We got a call that a dog was laying in a sewage ditch. When our rescue team arrived they saw that she was only in a foot of water, but was actually in the process of drowning. Her nose dipped wearily into the water. Bubbles were emerging. If we had arrived even 5 minutes later, it’s possible she would have drowned. When we lifted her we could see that she had a completely fractured leg, hanging only by loose tissue. Maybe she had been hit by a car, was confused, lay in the water in a desperate effort to stop the bleeding or ease the pain. Once back in Animal Aid we determined that she was in shock–her pulse was weak and she was hypothermic. We feared we might lose her. She urgently needed an amputation but was too weak to withstand surgery. So we spent several days stabilizing her–a balancing act between strengthening her, and holding the infection and pain at bay. Her operation took place 3 days later and now–it’s like a miracle–meet Phoenix!

    I cried as I watched this poor darling sink into the water, bubbles foaming as she gave up. But then those strong hands lifted her to safety. Many thanks to the wonderful rescuers who save them off the streets, and to the vets who perform miracles, and the carers who offer love and comfort post surgery,

    AAU, standard of operation is much newer now! I love that! My biggest hope is for the people in town to start learning and using their new found information to help all creatures! Not only humans are put on this earth, but we musn’t forget the animals. I have so far only made 2 small donations, but I promise there will be more!!! God bless all who work there! Yours truly, Marilyn Roberts
