Veterinaria Animal Hospital’s Exceptional Care
Due to the outstanding care Veterinaria Animal Hospital provided, Pincky’s condition improved, and they discharged him a few days later. The attending veterinarian shared their experience treating Pincky, translated into English:
“A few days ago, we received an emergency call about a house break-in. This beautiful puppy tried to defend his space, not knowing the danger he faced. We arrived on the scene, and Pincky was bleeding and in immense pain. We calmed him down so we could lift and transport him.
One of the pitchfork’s tines pierced his spine, a testicle, and his entire leg. Fortunately, none of these injuries damaged any vital organs. After surgical intervention, we closely monitored his reaction, as the infection was severe.
Pincky responded excellently, staying under observation for a few days and receiving medication. He has now been discharged and is doing perfectly. Pincky, you were very brave and strong.”
