On Thursday, Ana was rescued off the streets of South Texas. While dogs have inherited the instinct to hide their pain that is caused by injury or infirmity, Ana’s face could not hide her pain and misery.
Rescue Dogs Rock NYC were contacted to help Ana, and that morning she was transported to the organization’s South Texas veterinarian partner for life saving treatment.
“She is in very critical condition, from months and months of neglect,” posted Rescue Dogs Rock NYC co-founder Stacey Silverstein on the organization’s social media page. “She’s weak and barely able to stand. Emaciated and her skin is raging with infection ….”
Unfortunately, Ana’s condition is much worse that originally thought. The emaciated puppy’s skin is raw, her eyes are heavily infected, and she remains in critical condition. She has been placed on intravenous fluids to treat her anemia and is scheduled to have a medicated bath to soothe her raw, painful skin.
How does any owner let their dog deteriorate like this?
Fight for your life Ana. It does, and it will get better soon.
