Severely injured dog has unbelievable transformation after rescue? Hope For Paws has seen its share of severely injured dog needing rescue. One case involved a call about a homeless dog burnt with acid. After receiving the call, Eldad Hagar and Loreta Frankonyte rushed to save the dog.
How to Help Injured Dog
The rescuers expected the worst and discovered just how bad the dog’s condition really was upon arriving at the scene. They winced at the sight of a dirty, matted, gaunt dog who was missing fur on some parts of its body. Loreta also immediately noticed how much worse the poor pooch’s mouth was, where it got burned with acid. The injury is so severe that the dog is barely able to eat.
The poor severely injured dog ‘s wound also smelled, attracting a lot of flies. Eldad and Loreta knew they need to get the dog treated as soon as possible. Or it may just be too late at all.
Loreta put the Lucky Leash to secure the pup and named her Alice. Alice did not even resist as her rescuers carried her to the car and rushed to the hospital. Her burned mouth contributed to her bad condition, but years of neglect made the situation much worse.
Eldad can feel how skinny Alice has become, and he noticed that her body is covered with ticks. Immediately, staffers shaved the dog’s matted fur and cleaned her at the hospital. She had such low body temperature that instead of getting a bath, Loreta used a damp cloth to wipe her clean.
Vet Found Multiple Conditions
The doctors found that Alice had multiple conditions that needed to be dealt with. She spent a week under close medical supervision, getting treatment for chemical burns, corneal ulcers, anemia, and a heart murmur. She also needed invasive dental surgery because of the severe injuries in her mouth.
Loreta decided to take Alice home once the dog has recovered sufficiently to continue the treatment. Under Loreta’s care, the dog continuously got better. And two months later, Alice got adopted.
Alice’s new family made sure that she would make a full recovery. So much so that seeing Alice six months later, Loreta and Eldad can’t believe that they are looking at the same dog. Alice has since been renamed Sufi, and she has finally found the love she dearly deserved.
