After a nerve-wracking two-hour search, we finally stumbled upon her, huddled in the mud, visibly shaken and completely drained. The poor dog was petrified and seemed ready to bolt at any moment, but unfortunately, her fractured spine prevented her from doing so. According to the driver who first saw her, she had been stuck there for a couple of days. We quickly took her back to our place, where we gave her a much-needed bath and some food. It was then that we discovered just how severe her injuries were.
During our visit to the veterinarian, we received some upsetting news. The vet informed us that our furry friend had suffered a complex spinal fracture, and the odds of successfully operating on her were not in her favor. If only we had taken her to the vet earlier, things may have been different. Despite the slim chance of success, we decided to proceed with the surgery. The procedure was intricate and took three hours to complete. When our pet woke up from the surgery, she flashed us a smile, giving us hope for a miraculous recovery.
As time went by, the woman received pain-relieving injections but unfortunately, there wasn’t any improvement in her ability to walk. Her behavior towards her roommate also became aggressive, due to the stress of her treatment. Recognizing the importance of her mental and emotional well-being, we made the decision to give her some time off to unwind. During this short break, she was able to find happiness, forge new friendships, and feel loved once more. The presence of dogs provided her with the motivation to exercise, which proved to be a critical factor in her recovery.
One day, whilst observing her, we noticed that she was crawling around with a desire to walk like her peer. She had undergone a significant transformation in just a few days – now always grinning and enjoying herself with her companions. Realizing that we needed to take action, we decided to purchase an exercise wheelchair for her. Initially, she was uncertain and stumbled, but she adapted quickly and became proficient in using it.
Our hopes were high until our furry friend’s temperature spiked to 40.6 degrees, causing us to quickly return to the vet for urgent treatment. Fortunately, the veterinarian promptly administered fluids and medication, providing comfort and reassurance that our pet would recover. After a well-deserved rest, our companion was feeling much better the following day.
She is thrilled to be back home and reunited with her pals. Although the doctor had little hope for a miraculous recovery, we stand by our decision. It would have been much worse if we had left it to chance. Her recuperation wasn’t a miracle, but it demonstrated how love and perseverance can do wonders.
