The mama dog was regurgitating what she ate to feed her puppies. It was a heart-wrenching sight to behold, a pure act of love and sacrifice. The very thought of a mother dog throwing up what little food she had to feed her little ones was something that would never leave the minds of those who witnessed it.
We were on our way back home when we saw her, a thin and emaciated dog with a chain still on her neck, lying on the side of the road. It was a pitiful sight, and we knew we had to do something to help her. We pulled over and got out of our car, hoping to offer her some food and water.
At first, the dog was wary and wouldn’t let us come close. She was clearly frightened and traumatized by her experiences. We didn’t want to scare her, so we left some food and water for her and waited. After a while, she came closer and sniffed the food. It was then that we noticed her teats were swollen. She was nursing her puppies somewhere, and we had to find them.
We followed her as she walked away from the road and towards a nearby forest. We walked for a few minutes until we came across a makeshift shelter. It was a small and rundown structure made of sticks and leaves, and it was home to the mama dog and her puppies.
As soon as she got to her makeshift shelter, she regurgitated the food we gave her so her puppies could eat. We watched in awe as she fed her little ones, even in her emaciated state. It was something we never expected to see, and it was both sad and touching at the same time.
We also found five puppies belonging to a different mother. All of them were thin and weak, and we knew we had to do something to help them. The mother of the puppies we found was likely in the same state as the one we just rescued. She was sacrificing herself so that she could feed her babies. We wanted to make sure that they all got plenty of food so that their mother would not have to go through the pain of throwing up what little she had left
The next day, we went back to the makeshift shelter to rescue the mama dog and her nine puppies. It was not an easy task, as the mother was still cautious and would not allow us to touch her. We had to lure her out with some food and use a tranquilizer dart to capture her safely. It was an emotional moment when we finally managed to get her and her puppies to safety.
The nine puppies we rescued were divided into two groups. Four of them were from the emaciated mother, and the other five were from the different mother we had found earlier. They were all in bad shape and needed deworming, vaccinations, milk, food, and care. The smallest and weakest one started having seizures upon arrival at the shelter. It was likely due to an electrolytic imbalance caused by malnutrition.
We knew we had to act fast to save the little puppy’s life. We gave him dextrose orally to stabilize him, and we were able to witness a small miracle as he was able to stand and walk again. However, he still refused to eat, so we fed him slurry to ensure he got the nutrition he needed. It was a long and challenging journey, but we were determined to help these little puppies and their mother.
In the end, we were able to find a loving home for the mama dog and her puppies. The other puppies were also given the care and attention they needed, and we made sure they
