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, looking for shelter to avoid high temperatures or the cold of the night. Some in more delicate conditions plunge into pain expecting the worst by not receiving the necessary help.
Dog with a bulging stomach gets the help she needed so much.
This is the story of a little dog who for a long time wandered from place to place begging for help. With a lost look, malnourished, and parched skin the passers-by watched her pass.
Her stomach was quite bulging, those who saw her believed that she was pregnant, but in reality, she was going through a rather difficult situation. Her situation was very complicated so she needed medical attention immediately.
The dog spent most of the time with her head down.
It was not until a passerby took pity on her and contacted a rescue group who arrived at the place with the greatest emotion to save her and improve her living condition.
She was taken to a veterinary clinic where she was given X-rays, blood samples and fluid tests. This time he had the support of some people who patiently waited for the results.
Her rescuers filled several buckets with the serous fluid that they drained from her stomach.
It was quickly ruled out that she was pregnant, in fact she had liters of fluid in her stomach that caused great pain, among the discomfort the large size of her tummy prevented her from walking easily.
During the first day they managed to extract more than 10 liters from him, little by little his body was recovering its shape. The liquid was being drained and the pain was getting thinner and thinner, finally his life of pain and misery were being left in the past.
When all the liquid was drained, his poor condition was even more evident, it was just skin and bones.
It took several sessions to be able to extract all the fluid. The tests showed that he suffered from ascites, a disease that affects puppies in which a large amount of fluid accumulates in his 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 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 is taken to the veterinarian so that he can receive the appropriate treatment. Pet owners are also urged to be vigilant with their puppies, as many may believe that 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 veterinarian, the treatment may vary, but if there is infection the intake of antibiotics is indispensable.
The dog was named Fufy.
This brave dog proved to be quite a warrior, for the first time in a long time she seemed to be calm, she would finally manage to sleep and lead a healthy life and surrounded by love. She spent several days admitted to the clinic, but managed to successfully overcome this great battle.
Now he can lie down without feeling any pain, stand 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 his life.
Let’s not be indifferent to the stray furry friends and let’s be that instrument they need so much to know true love. Adopt!
