This heart-breaking story is about a cute puppy that was only 6-week-old.The puppy could no longer walk; the owner took her to the veterinary clinic and asked for the puppy to be put down. Then the owner left, leaving the puppy’s fate in the vet’s hands.
The veterinarian, however, decided not to follow the owner’s orders, and ran a series of diagnostic tests on the paralyzed puppy, named Bella instead. The veterinarian also got in touch with Piper Wood, founder of Hand in Paw, a California rescue group, and arranged for her to take Bella into her care.
As it turned out, Bella was not actually paralyzed, but simply suffering from hypoglycemia.
“Maybe they weren’t feeding her enough, and her blood sugar was too low,” Wood told The Dodo.
Bella had also been taken away from her mother too early, which may have contributed to the problem. But with a little care at the vet, Bella made a rapid recovery.
Wood informed that the dog, after being on IVs for two hours, was able to stand up. She was a little shaky, but she was standing up, and eating on her own.”
“It was a pretty simple fix,” Wood added. “A couple IVs, some fluids and she were fine. It probably cost less than euthanasia.” Bella did take a little while to fully recover. She got a mild case of puppy strangles, which is a skin infection. It also took the little dog some time to become confident.
But with proper care and attention, and lots of love, Bella made a full recovery — both physically and mentally. And a couple weeks ago, Bella found her forever home.
Wood said that when the puppy was taken to her new home, he saw her play for the first time. She was playing with like 10 different toys at once and running around, and she was so happy.
That was incredible to see because they had only seen the scared side of her.
Now she is definitely feeling so much better, and she feels at home.
