A dog is recuperating from horrific injuries at an Illinois-based rescue agency after being found days ago by a good Samaritan. The dog, dubbed Claude, was taken to the Wright-Way Rescue Admission & Medical Services Campus on October 19. The agency writes:
Emergency Plea — Dog Just Arrived in Critical Condition🚨
Claude is suffering from major puncture and bite wounds covering his entire body, severe dehydration, and infection. The trauma to his ears is massive and the wounds have become infected. Claude is currently hospitalized and he will have to stay in the hospital for a while.
A day later, Wright-Way Rescue provided an update which details Claude’s extensive injuries:
CLAUDE UPDATE — DAY 1❤️
Today Claude went into surgery where he received over 50 sutures. His entire body is covered in wounds, a couple of which are quite deep. In addition, many of the wounds had necrotic (dead or dying) tissue surrounding them. All his wounds were thoroughly cleaned and the necrotic tissue was removed. Drain tubes were placed on both sides of his head to help the abscesses behind his ears heal. While still anesthetized, he was given a medicated bath and gentle hydrotherapy to promote healing. Today was the first step in a long journey to recovery.
