When dogs live as strays on the streets, they have a lot of different challenges to overcome. For starters, they have no start where their next meal will come from, so they are always on the search for food.
They usually have to adapt their shelter when it comes to finding a safe location to sleep. They are also exposed to any medical issues that may develop.
Because they lack access to medical treatment, a little cut might lead them to suffer or die.
One stray dog was on the edge of death from a severe neck wound when rescue arrived. He had slumped on the street from weariness and medical injuries when rescuers spotted him.
Animal Aid Unlimited was on the case, determined to save him from certain death. The rescuers worked fast but carefully to make him comfortable before lifting him and transporting him to their facility.
When the dog arrived at a safe place, he was given a medical examination. His wound was properly cleansed and bandaged, and he was provided with much-needed pain treatment.
It was time to start the mending process once it looked that he would live. He had a long journey ahead of him to recovery, but there were some optimistic indications of development along the way.
They had to use a syringe at first because he was too weak to feed himself. But by the next day, he could feed himself! The wound had healed wonderfully by the ninth day!
With such a severe wound, this angel may have felt hopeless. However, love keeps hope alive.
