The organization got a call on their hotline about a street dog who needed help. This dog needs immediate medical attention as his head was severely swollen. He even looked like a pig from the sides rather than a dog.
He was given treats to gain his trust which he gladly took. But he was not letting anyone touch him. Whenever they try, he would run away.
They knew that they could not lose him since the area that he was in was huge, and once he runs, it would be too difficult to catch him. The team decided to use a net to catch him instead. Using treats for bait, they were able to capture him.
He was immediately brought in so he can be checked. The poor dog was scared, but it was something that he needed. The vet checked his condition and assessed it properly so they can do the necessary treatment.
The vet assessed and decided that the only way was for them to do surgery since an abscess caused the swelling. The dog was sedated before they cleaned the area and prepared it for operation. They drained the abscess after giving him an incision on the side of his head.
A draining tube was inserted and his wound was sutured up. Two weeks after his surgery, he is a different dog. He looks very different. He looks happy and healthier without the massive swelling of his head.
He is also feeling much better that his head is back to its normal size. This dog was fortunate enough to have the organization help him out. There are other dogs out there that need their help. Hopefully, whoever encounters them will be concerned enough to call an organization to help out.
