Helping a stray dog is one of the greatest acts of love that anyone can do. We cannot deny that the reality for these furry ones is completely different.
Many of them spend their days facing a great battle, seeking shelter to avoid the high temperatures or the cold at night. Some in more delicate conditions immerse themselves in pain expecting the worst by not receiving the necessary help.
Dog with a bulging stomach gets much-needed help.
This is the story of a dog that for a long time wandered from one place to another begging for help. With a lost look, malnourished, and dry skin, passers-by watched her go by.
Her stomach was quite bulging, those who saw her believed that she was pregnant, but in reality, she was going through a very difficult situation. Her situation was very complicated so she needed immediate medical attention.
The dog spent much of the time crestfallen.
It was not until a passerby took pity on her and contacted a rescue group that they arrived at the scene with the greatest emotion of saving her and improving her living condition.
She was transferred to a veterinary clinical center where X-rays, blood samples and fluid analysis were taken. This time she had the support of some people who patiently waited for the results.
Her rescuers filled several buckets with the serous fluid that drained from her stomach.
It was quickly ruled out that she was pregnant, in reality she had liters of liquid in her stomach that caused her great pain, among the discomfort the large size of her belly prevented her from walking easily.
During the first day they managed to extract more than 10 liters from her, little by little her body recovered its shape. The fluid was being drained and the pain was fading away, finally her life of pain and misery was in the past.
When all the liquid was drained, its poor condition was even more evident, it was just skin and bones.
Several sessions were necessary to be able to extract all the liquid. The tests showed that he suffered from ascites, a disease that affects puppies in which a large amount of fluid accumulates in their abdomen.
This can cause a wide variety of symptoms such as sudden weight gain, discomfort in the stomach area, and loss of appetite. Studies show that it can occur as a result of a disorder in the internal organs or in the lymph nodes.
Ascites in the most severe cases can cause pressure on the diaphragm thus causing a breathing disorder.
It is necessary that the puppy suffering from ascites be taken to the veterinarian so that it can receive the appropriate treatment. Pet owners are also urged to be vigilant with their puppies, as many may believe they have gained weight when in fact they may be retaining fluid.
These symptoms can occur slowly or very suddenly in any of the cases, you should always go to the vet, the treatment may vary, but if there is an infection, taking antibiotics is essential.
The dog was named Fufy.
This brave little dog proved to be a warrior, for the first time in a long time she seemed to be calm, she would finally be able to sleep and lead a healthy life surrounded by love. She spent several days in the clinic, but she managed to successfully overcome this great battle.
Now she can lie down without feeling any pain, stand up and run like any other puppy. None of this would have been possible without the compassion and empathy of a being who decided to make a difference and change her life.
Let’s not be indifferent to the street furry ones and let’s be that instrument that they need so much to know true love. Adopt!
