We received a report of this poor dog being ʜɪᴛ by a car a few days ago and unable to move his hind legs.
She clearly just had a baby and is probably sᴜꜰꜰᴇʀɪɴɢ from not being able to find her puppies. We rescued the dog, She looked like she was paralyzed or ʙʀᴏᴋᴇ her leg.
We called her Sinead, there are no signs of puppies anywhere so it is possible that she is still pregnant. We’ll know more when Doc Pierre reviews her.
She went for an X-ray afterwards and the results were not good. She did not have a broken limb or pelvis but she did have a ʙʀᴏᴋᴇ spine, which has affected the nerves in her hind legs. She is already able to defecate and urinate in the shelter so hopefully these functions are not affected.
Dr. Gama, who took her X-rays, believes there is a chance of recovery with laser therapy. and he was programmed to do high intensity laser therapy for 7 days in a row.
After 5 days she did a lot better. She is currently eating alone and pooped three times last night. After 13 days, she underwent 9 laser treatments and had significant improvement in muscle and bone growth.
However, like I think, this is not aligned yet but we hope that with the next laser therapy it will be stronger.
After 1 month she is in better condition but we are not sure that she will use her legs again. Hope she finds a lovely home.
