A veterinarian braves the snow-covered suburbs of Bucharest, Romania, to save the life of a stray dog in this stunning video. When a Rosu Ovidiu (“The Outdoor Rescue Vet”) came to his rescue, the dog was roaming the streets of Bucharest with a piece of huge plastic pipe choking his throat.
The vet was finally able to locate the dog after 6 hours of fighting through half a metre of snow. Following an expert tranquilization of the dog, the vet specialist quickly puts a pair of scissors beneath the plastic and cuts it off, revealing the canine’s wounded neck.
“As far as we knew the dog had the plastic pipe inserted around his neck when he was young by a guy who thought it looked amusing,” the vet noted at the time of the canine’s rescue. The pipe stayed in place as the dog matured, gradually cutting through the skin and restricting the dog’s head motions.”
The dog was transferred to a vet clinic for further treatment and neutering after the pipe was removed. Marinela Tudor alerted Rosu Ovidiu to the situation. She is the founder of Asociatia Paws United, a dog sanctuary where the puppy would be housed until he was adopted.
