There is a reason that puppies need to get a few vaccines when they’re about a couple of months old. Sure, their mother’s milk gives them antibodies and the nutrition they need, but it doesn’t protect them against diseases. You’re probably asking, what about all those dogs who live in the street? They don’t get any vaccinations and they’re okay, right?
Well, not really. You see, street dogs are the ones who are in the highest risk category. They live in the most unsanitary of conditions and eat whatever they can find whenever they can find it. They will eat things that are not really suitable for consumption. This causes them to get ridden with all sorts of infections. Their life expectancy is much lower than your average pup’s.
Many times, when they arrive at the shelter, vets do everything in their power to bring them to health. This is almost always possible as their conditions are often not that serious. However, there are cases where vets cannot do anything but watch them slip away. This may be tough to watch even for a vet. The reason that they became vets is that they love animals and want the best for them.
I remember one case where the vet even became the pup’s savior. One family had a gorgeous Pit Bull. He had a tumor on his face that was not operable. Or at least, that’s what they had been told. They said their good-byes to him and took him to the vet with the intent of euthanizing him. The vet decided to give him the last check-up. He still had hope that something could be done.
And sure enough, there was. The vet was able to find a way for the pup to make a complete come-back. Many people tend to think that vets are very cold when it comes to dogs and cats, but I can tell you that it’s actually the opposite. Surely, they have seen many nasty things in their line of work, but in the end, they aim at doing what’s best for their patient, even if it means saving them a lot of suffering by euthanizing them.
The following story is one of an incredible comeback. Parvovirus is probably the deadliest virus for dogs. When a dog has it, sometimes nothing can be done for him even with proper medication. The virus makes the body fail, often in an irreversible way. When the vet in the following video got a new patient, he knew it would probably be one of those cases where the pup ends up losing the battle. He didn’t even have enough strength to lift his little head. What happened next was totally amazing!
