This gentle mama dog was spotted by neighbors with a fast-growing abscess that formed when a small puncture wound became infected.
She had 3 beautiful babies, and mom seemed surprisingly calm when we lifted her and the kids into our ambulance.
In the hospital, we decided that rather than draining the abscess, this one had a chance to be reabsorbed with the help of antibiotics and anti-inflammatory medicine. Providing her with all the food she and the babies wanted would help her heal as fast as possible. It’s fascinating to see her letting her puppies eat before she does.
What a beautiful mother! Once healing is well under way, no sooner does she go out to stretch her legs but she hurries back to the kennel to make sure the kids are safe and sound. This lovely lady wouldn’t have survived without our help. Or should we say, without your help.
