The sight of a forsaken pup whimpering and struggling to move left onlookers in a state of despair, prompting many to shed tears at the heart-wrenching sight.
While working at the veterinary food store, a client alerted us to an unusual sight outside. We discovered a puppy that was crying and couldn’t stand or walk. It wasn’t clear what had occurred before we found him, but we knew that we had to assist him in any way we could.
Upon discovering the puppy, we took him inside to check his condition. Unfortunately, he seemed to be in a great deal of pain and was visibly frightened. Despite our best efforts to soothe him, it was apparent that he required more extensive care than we could provide. Consequently, we made the decision to take him to the veterinary clinic for a comprehensive assessment.
It was a huge relief to hear from the vet that Lucky’s bones were not broken. However, we were informed that there was a possibility of a spinal cord injury that had affected his nerves. Our vet prescribed medication to alleviate inflammation and ease the pain in his spinal cord. Unfortunately, despite the medication, Lucky was still in agony and could not get up on his feet.
As we were worried about Lucky’s well-being, we opted to take him for an X-ray. The vet informed us that although he didn’t have any fractures, the spinal cord damage was causing him significant discomfort. To alleviate his pain and reduce inflammation, the veterinarian prescribed medication. Lucky was a treasured member of our family and had quickly become a beloved puppy. Despite his ailment, he showed remarkable strength and determination. He tried to lift his head and eat independently, and thankfully, he had an excellent appetite and was cooperative throughout his treatment.
We were unsure of what caused Lucky’s injection site to become infected, but it had developed into a festering abscess. Despite this setback, Lucky was still able to maintain a healthy appetite and follow his medication schedule. However, we had to make sure to clean the abscess daily as it continued to ooze pus. Although Lucky was still unable to walk, he was making progress in other areas.
As time went by, Lucky showed remarkable improvement in his condition. He was able to maneuver all of his legs and even enjoyed a refreshing bath. The abscess started to dry up, indicating that it was on its way to recovery. Finally, Lucky was able to walk again, which brought us immense joy and relief. Watching Lucky run for the first time after his injury was an unforgettable moment. We knew then that Lucky was a fighter and we were privileged to have been a part of his healing process. It became clear to us that Lucky was meant to be a part of our family forever, so we decided to officially adopt him.
We are overjoyed to say that our furry companion, Lucky, is now living a life full of happiness and good health. Lucky has found his forever home with us, and we love him more than anything in the world. Today, we took him for his routine vaccination, but unfortunately, he got so scared of the needles that he had an accident in his cage. Despite his fear, Lucky will always hold a special place in our hearts as our little miracle. Please spread the word about our beloved Lucky by sharing this post with your loved ones.
