The Howl Of A Dog rescue group rescued Emma from a dog pound in Romania. She was hungry and underweight. She also needed help with her mange and sores that were infected. She limped and couldn’t use her left leg. Her left eye didn’t develop fully and she couldn’t use it.
The team that rescued her thought that the limp she had may have been because she was hit by a vehicle. Emma used to roam the streets before she was caught and brought to the pound.
The team knew that Emma needed medical help ASAP. They took her to a vet where she got an x-ray to see the condition of her limp. The vet saw that her back leg had a bad injury.
To help Emma get better, surgery was needed. But she couldn’t have that because they had to treat her infections first. Emma got a medicated bath first.
Emma seems to be two years old. The team thought that this may be the first time in her life that she got cared for. Emma slowly started to come out of her shell.
When the infection was cured, Emma had to be prepped for surgery. The whole thing went well and that was because Emma was a sure fighter.
After the operation, Emma still had to recover. To help her, the team put some ice where she got operated on to help lessen any swelling. They also gave her gentle exercises to improve her movement. She wasn’t in any way ignored or left to do things alone.
Emma may have forgotten how to use her leg but instinct kicked in and soon she was able to start walking using her previously injured leg. It meant that the leg was healing well.
Emma is now being cared for at Howl Of A Dog while she waits to get her forever home.
