Shelter News - October 2015


He was run over by a train and lost two legs!!!

The only reason I’m showing you these wounds—I mean, they’re just ghastly—is because this guy stunningly “bounced back” within days of coming in. He is simply an energetic, happy creature, and will have a very good life with us.

He was an “owner dog”-- about a year old. And the owner brought him to us during the day. Dr. Raja wasn’t here at the time, and Dr.Bharati treated him. (Dr.Bharati’s post grad work, like Dr.Raja’s, is in surgery. But surgery wasn’t needed.) He cleaned the wounds. Gave him a strong painkiller injection which effectively masked the pain, a steroid injection for shock, and thru an i.v. drip—nutrition and anti-biotics.  

The first photo and video are before treatment. The second photo is post-treatment.

9A. Poor Poor, poor baby.

Oh Sweetie!!! 

9B. Resting Resting and sedated.And this second “mind-blowing” video was taken only five days later. He’s truly a happy guy. His resilience is stunning. It’s such a great lesson for us.

You just gotta carry on, guys!

The “owner” has dis-owned him. Fine---he’s better off with us. I’m writing this at the two week point and just called Dr.Raja to see if they can get a good video as he is right now. So if there’s another one, below, it’s hot off the press. Hope they can get it because he’s already got some friends.

Oh, sweetie pie…how thankful we are you’re so strong...It’s such a high teaching for us...We love you...We care...We pray...From, All of us.
