A stray pup, suspected of having been in a fight with a raccoon and later discovered suffering outside of a home in Crosby, Texas, survived surgery at the Gulf Coast Veterinary Services on Thursday. When brought into the hospital, Sasha’s condition was listed as critical; her prognosis was unknown.
According to ThisIsHouston, surgeons were able to save most of the tissue needed to repair the large head wound and the dog is now resting comfortably.
“She’s dull today, but that’s to be expected. She’s on a fentanyl patch, and she’s eating well. Her left ear is still swollen, but the overall swelling of her face has drastically improved. Incisions look good and there’s minimal discharge from the bite wounds.”
Sasha is also being treated as a possible rabies patient and has received the vaccinations. Her eye is also under close observation. Tragically, if she breaks out with rabies, she will have to be humanely euthanized.
“It’s hard to believe a raccoon did all this damage to a 72-pound dog, but we can only go by what were were told,” the rescue organization posted on their social media page.
On Friday, the dog was transferred to Vergi 24/7 for her aftercare.
She has a foster home waiting, and everyone is anxious to begin spoiling Sasha and nurse her back to health. Please keep Sasha in your thoughts and prayers.
