Poodle Met New Doc That Cradled Her As She’s Swept Up By Both Fear & Relief

When we take an animal into our home, their place in our family is forever. This goes without saying.

No matter if they’re injured, fall ill, or have behavioral problems, it is our duty to care for them regardless. Sadly, many pet owners out there do not stand by this and animals suffer because of it.

A beautiful dog, named Manuka Honey (we’ll call her Honey for short), was tragically hit by a car. Her injuries to her front leg were extensive.

Her owners did bring her to the vet clinic and surgery was recommended. They did not want to pay for the surgery and asked if there was an alternative.

The vet said they could try diligently treating her leg with frequent bandage changes by bringing her in weekly as well as antibiotics and strict supervision.

The owners agreed but failed Honey miserably. They did not bring her in for bandage changes nor stay on top of her wounds. Her leg became severely infected leading to necrosis.

To make matters worse, her owners kept her leg so tightly wrapped that it limited blood flow. Poor Honey was suffering.

By the time Honey was surrendered to AMA Animal Rescue, her poor body had been through so much. She desperately needed adequate care as well as lots of love.

Her new human friends were happy to intervene. AMA took Honey to their vet who said, without a shadow of a doubt, she needed both her leg and shoulder amputated. Her wounds had gotten so bad that there was no way of saving the limb.

To make matters even worse, Honey was so lethargic that she couldn’t even eat or drink. This is why proper medical care is NEVER an option.

Had her owners listened to their vet, Honey wouldn’t have suffered the way she did. AMA’s vet scheduled Honey for surgery the next day. She first needed IV fluids and proper rest the build up her strength.

Honey’s surgery was a total success. Now that she was surrounded by loving people, she perked up, making her healing that much more successful.

As she remained at the vet clinic to recover, AMA went on the hunt to find this new tripod a forever family. Placing animals with special needs is always a challenge. But AMA was NOT going to give up on the deserving dog.

The little warrior not only recovered from surgery, but she also adjusted very well to her new body! She took on her new life happily knowing she was now in good care.

To see her run and play (YES! She is quite the success!) and to see what happens with Honey next (which is totally heartwarming), check out AMA’s video below.

We are so happy Honey’s life was spared and she is now one happy pup!
