A sweet rescue for Sugar

by | 16 September 2020 | Gainsborough, Local Charity, Retford, Rotherham, Worksop

Sugar was taken to RSPCA Doncaster, Rotherham and District Branch after she was found straying at the back of a row of shops in Doncaster. Clearly in distress and a lot of pain, Sugar had been suffering with a large open wound and significant swelling on her front leg. Her bones were exposed.
The vet determined that her injuries were most likely due to the result of a nasty dog bite that had been ignored and become severely infected. To give Sugar the best chance at survival it was thought she might have to lose her leg. However, as operation day approached, the vet was astounded by the improvement the wound had made, resulting in a new plan – flush and clean the wound with the help of some extra medication.
Just a few weeks later and with a lot of care and attention from the team, the wound was beginning to close. Since then, she has slowly been learning to use her leg again and building confidence. Sugar was found just in time before the infection had a chance to take over her whole body. She has now found her forever home where she can continue her recovery whilst receiving the love and care she deserves.
