Life on the streets is tough for humans, but it’s even tougher for animals who are deprived of basic necessities such as food, shelter, and clean water. Fortunately, there are several animal charities that are dedicated to supporting stray animals all over the world. One such charity is Animal Aid, which does an amazing job of helping animals in need. Animal Aid provides shelter, food, and medical care to animals in need. Recently, Animal Aid received a distress call about a puppy suffering from acute mange. Despite receiving lots of love and attention, mange can be challenging to cure. The poor puppy had lost all of her hair, making her vulnerable to secondary infections, parasites, and sunburns. To help the dog, Animal Aid sent volunteers to provide care and assistance. Although the puppy was obviously hungry, she was hesitant to be picked up and cared for.
The reason why the dog was wandering on the streets was because she had recently given birth to her litter. Despite facing some challenges, the volunteer managed to convince the dog and bring her along with some tasty treats. Now, it was time to locate her puppies.
When we stumbled upon Momma’s litter of puppies, we were devastated to see that they were all suffering from mange. Among them, Coco was in the worst condition. One of our volunteers quickly picked up the feeble pup and brought her back to her mother, hoping to save them both. We are relieved to share that Coco will be given the opportunity to live a healthy and happy life, which she undoubtedly deserves.
On the exam table lay Momma, her skin ravaged by mange. Regular applications of antibiotic ointment and medicinal baths were necessary for her recovery, but her caretakers remained dedicated to seeing it through. Despite her fear, the medical staff worked to ease Momma’s distress during her treatments.
Coco, the dog, underwent a test and was found to be underweight and lethargic. The medical team who provided her skin treatment were very caring towards her. Coco would need regular dermatological baths, but the good news was that the rescue facility allowed both her and her puppy to stay there while they healed.
Eventually, the dogs began to feel at ease and were able to have their first meal. It was clear that Momma and Coco were unaccustomed to being confined and interacting with people in this way. However, one of the volunteers approached them with good intentions and offered a delicious dish of food. As soon as the dogs started eating, the atmosphere in the room became filled with positive emotions, especially among the volunteers.
Despite being safe, the dogs found themselves in a foreign environment. Coco, specifically, was small and delicate, and she held on tight to her mother whenever possible. She could only rest comfortably while curled up next to her mom. Witnessing their bond was truly remarkable, as their love was tangible and indisputable.
After undergoing rigorous therapy for a few weeks, Coco and her mother made remarkable progress. Coco’s energy levels even allowed her to engage in playful activities, which both delighted and overwhelmed her mother. The volunteers were pleasantly surprised when they witnessed an adorable incident unfold. Coco closely observed her mother’s every move and imitated them with precision. If her mom scratched her ear, Coco would follow suit, and the same goes for sitting down to scratch. Coco’s unwavering focus on her mother was truly heartwarming.
