Mange is a grave issue in dogs, and it can have severe consequences if not taken care of promptly. Dogs suffering from this condition may take several months to recuperate, but timely help can make all the difference. Animal Aid Unlimited’s rescuers found Petey on the streets and recognized that they couldn’t let him endure any further.
The rescue organization posted a heartwarming video on YouTube, showcasing the inspiring story of Petey, a senior street dog who had been through a lot. The poor pooch was riddled with scabs and wounds from his severe case of mange, which had also caused a painful wound on his leg and a badly infected eye. It was clear that Petey was in dire straits and nearing the end of his life. His leg wound was so severe that it was infested with maggots, and he could barely walk. Additionally, his eye wound had caused blurred vision, which was likely due to constant scratching. Not only that, but Petey was emaciated, and even his toes were swollen and tender. Despite all of this, the compassionate rescue workers were determined to help Petey and give him the second chance at life he deserved.
Petey was aware that the rescuers from Animal Aid Unlimited had come to assist him, and he willingly went with them to receive medical attention for his maggot and infection problems. In their care, he received creams and medicated baths, along with nourishing meals. Despite the slow process, Petey managed to recover from his near-death state and adjust well to his healthier lifestyle. According to the rescue team, Petey is a kind-hearted dog who behaves calmly and desires to be a well-behaved companion.
