Wounded dog lost on busy highway rescued
Cars whirred by at 80 km an hour. Cowering against the median, we found this gentle sweetheart confused, lost, and suffering from an excruciatingly painful ear wound. The wound had probably doubled in size because maggots had entered and consumed parts of his ear, inner and outer. Rescuer Prakash knew he had to move slowly and so carefully, to ensure that Ernest didn’t run into the traffic trying to escape. We brought him back to Animal Aid’s hospital to start his treatment and with daily flushings and wound dressings, Ernest healed in about 2 months. What a joy it was to treat such a patient, loving angel. Because not only was he given comfort and love, so too were all his caregivers comforted and loved by Ernest.
