The story revolved around Aqua, a resilient canine who had undergone unimaginable traumas and was now struggling to heal and recover.
Aqua’s journey started with a heinous act of barbarity. She was viciously attacked by some dogs, trapped inside a sack, and mercilessly abandoned in an unfamiliar locality. Trapped in the sack, with no escape route, Aqua’s plaintive cries reverberated through the air, a desperate call for assistance that fortunately caught someone’s attention. A compassionate passerby, who heard her cries for help, came to her rescue and freed her.
When the kind stranger came across Aqua, they were met with a heartbreaking sight. Aqua had suffered severe injuries, including deep and gruesome bite wounds on her neck. To make matters worse, she was unable to walk or stand. Understanding the gravity of the situation, the Good Samaritan reached out to Manali Strays – an animal rescue organization dedicated to providing aid to animals in need.
The Manali Strays crew promptly arrived and took Aqua under their wing. The veterinary team wasted no time and gave her pain medication to ease her discomfort. Aqua’s situation was dire, so it was crucial for her to undergo several weeks of intensive medical care.
After administering intravenous fluids, Aqua’s condition was stabilized, but upon closer inspection, it was clear that there were underlying issues. Her backside hair was matted and hardened like glue, which prompted the team to investigate further. Upon removing the hair, they uncovered a large abscess infection that had been concealed beneath the skin.
The abscess was brimming with pus and posed a serious threat. Luckily, timely intervention prevented Aqua from falling victim to the infection. She was completely drained, both physically and mentally, due to her injuries and the traumatic experience she had endured.
The team of animal doctors and assistants put in a lot of effort to clean Aqua’s wound by first administering sedatives. The scene was heart-wrenching as Maggots had dug deep into her skin, infecting it badly, and even causing parts of her skin like her ear to become non-functional. The veterinary team carried out the task with great patience, removing all the infected and dead tissues while taking the utmost care of the wound.
The following day, Aqua’s condition improved, which was a huge relief. She was able to eat without any assistance, which was a small but significant progress towards her recovery. Although she was still fragile and couldn’t engage in any physical activity, her spirit remained resilient throughout. Aqua never gave up and kept pushing herself, proving her strong determination to survive.
The team at Manali Strays took care of Aqua’s wound for a whole month, applying medicine to it every day. Thanks to their hard work and Aqua’s determination, the wound began to heal and shrink. Although Aqua still had a long way to go, she was slowly recovering her strength.
In a touching scene, the rescuers treated Aqua to a warm bath, letting her know that she was safe and loved. Aqua had endured a lot of suffering and abuse, but now her story was taking a turn towards hope and resilience.
