Little Emma was found close to death, tossed out in to a row of bushes. A good samaritan found her and brought her to the SPCA, where I worked as an animal technician. Her little body was close to lifeless. I rushed her to the local animal emergency clinic. She was very anemic, due to a horrible parasite infestation. Fleas, ticks, and intestinal worms were, literally, sucking the life out of her. The vet did not have much hope in her survival. To add to her problems, she was missing a foot! Luckily, that looked like a genetic problem, and not an injury. I took her home with me that evening, gave her a bath to get rid of the fleas, and dewormed her. My rescue shepherd mix, Gus, helped me to keep watch over Emma throughout the night. It took about 3 weeks before Emma regained a pink color to her tongue and gums, but, with the help and love of myself and my rescue dogs, Emma survived, and is a happy, healthy dog today!
