When Animal Aid was called in to tend to an injured stray, they weren’t aware that her wounds were so extensive, writes ilovemydogsomuch
Besides dogs having a high pain tolerance, this dog was so happy with the attention she was receiving that it almost seemed as if her injuries were superficial. That was certainly not the case.
As the volunteer knelt down to pet the sweet dog, they’d later name Rani, that’s when he realized that this dog had little time left. She screamed out in pain as he lifted her leg up to examine her. The wound was a gaping hole. How she managed to survive this long, is mind-boggling!
Rani’s wound was so large that you could see inside, all the way to her internal organs. Rani had no time to spare. They covered her in a blanket and took her to the Animal Aid sanctuary for immediate medical treatment.
The vet confirmed that Rani had a fractured pelvis that had injured bladder. She also had the largest, gaping wound the vet had ever seen on a living animal. It’s truly a miracle that Rani made it this far.
There was no way they could wait. Rani needed emergency surgery. The doctors and volunteers were concerned that she wouldn’t survive, especially with the risk of infection. But Rani did!
Medical science is far from perfect. But it sure has come a long way! Still, animals like Rani are true survivors. She wanted to live. She fought hard, and look at the outcome! This is Rani now!
The dog that held back her pain just for a few pats on the head, is now living her best life at the Animal Aid sanctuary. It’s hard to find adopters in such a poor area but what’s awesome about Animal Aid is that every stray they bring in gets to live there indefinitely. They’re beyond a no-kill shelter. They’re a haven.
We love all the Animal Aid volunteers! Thank you for saving Rani. You can see her rescue below but use discretion since her wounds are shown as well as surgical images. And don’t forget, Animal Aid operates solely on donations. Let’s pass along their stories to raise awareness!
