Animal Aid Unlimited is a US-based charitable organization that operates an animal shelter and hospital in India. Much like many rescue organizations, they help rescue street animals and care for them. So when they received a call one day about a badly hurt puppy, rescuers from the organization rushed to the site.
This particular puppy had a large wound on his neck and was bleeding a lot. As there are many strays in the area, no one was able to see what happened to the pup. Some say that the little pooch may have fallen from one of the stone ledges and hit the sharp rocks below.
When her rescuers arrived at the scene, they found the puppy crying and whining on the side of the road. It was feeling a lot of pain from her injuries and was not moving at all. When one of the rescuers lifted her up, the sudden motion caused the puppy to wail out. The rescuers knew that they had to bring the pup to a vet immediately.
Once they arrived in the animal hospital, vets gave the pooch some pain medication. They saw that she was in agony, and any movement causes sharp pains. When the medication finally calmed the dog down, the vets were able to handle the pup. She was still under some strain, so they needed to move fast yet be gentle too.
The vet and his assistant cleaned the pup’s wounds, flushed out any debris, and bandaged her wounds tightly. They wanted to avoid any infection. She was also given medication to prevent infection and help her heal her wounds faster.
Thankfully, the pup was still young, and her wounds healed fast. In just a week, the puppy was already able to walk without any pain. She has also started playing with the other dogs residing in the shelter. In fact, the pup, who they named Connie, was helping other injured dogs there too.
In time, Connie will be given a new family. She would not live in the streets anymore, away from the many dangers it possesses.
