Taka, a dog, came dangerously close to dying in a fire. The eight-year-house old’s caught fire last week while he was on the porch. Despite their best efforts, his family was unable to make it in time and was forced to abandon the residence.
A miracle occurred.
Taka made it out of the porch on his own and dashed down the street. The dog was ultimately discovered by a kind neighbor, who rushed it to the Care More Animal Hospital in Martinez, Georgia.
“He had burns all over his face, jaws, ears, and belly,” Emily Martin, a veterinarian at Care More Animal Hospital, explained. “At first, we didn’t sure how serious his injuries were since we were concerned about inhalation burns.”
Taka’s eyes were also badly damaged… Unfortunately, he became blind as a result of his actions.
When Taka began to experience breathing problems, the veterinary staff took him to the University of Georgia clinic. He could be hooked up to an oxygen machine there. Taka was able to return to Care More Animal Hospital after a few days, and they are doing everything they can to assist him.
“I tried to treat my patients in the same way, but their case made my heart a little more painful,” Martin said. “When he came in, he screamed in pain.” Martin spoke with Taka’s family shortly after arriving at the veterinary hospital, and they eventually turned Taka over to Martin’s care due to his health. Since then, Martin decided to become more than just Taka’s vet – she became her mother.
Since the hospital is not open 24 hours a day, Martin takes Taka home at night. So you don’t need to sleep alone. The next day, Martin climbed into Taka’s kennel at the veterinary hospital and they slept together. A colleague of Martin caught the furry moment:
For Martin, one of the most incredible things about Taka is how gentle he is, despite everything he has experienced. “Usually, when animals feel pain, they start to bite. However, he never tried to bite.” Although it is too early to say how burns will affect Taka in the long run, Martin and others The vet is optimistic about his recovery, especially because he is eating and eating. Go to the bathroom alone.
“He’s definitely in a lot of pain, but we’re hoping he’ll be fine,” Martin said.
Taka’s personality is beginning to shine
“He likes belly rubs and loves food, so he’s a pig,” Martin said. “He also likes to hug.“
Martin is very attached to Taka and thought about adopting him forever. However, the woman has raised five other dogs and a seven-month-old baby. So he admitted that his home may not be the ideal residence for Taka, and Taka needs a lot of personal care. Martin is determined to find the best home for him and to be with people who know his special dog. “He went through something so traumatic and painful, but he didn’t give up,” Martin said. “It’s so hard.”
