We have all heard heart-wrenching stories of abandoned or injured animals, and sadly, Sinead’s story is no different. A few days ago, we received reports of a poor dog that had been hit by a vehicle and was unable to move her back legs. As if that wasn’t enough, it was evident that she had recently given birth and was likely distressed at not being able to find her puppies. We immediately sprang into action and rescued the dog, who we named Sinead.
Upon further examination, it appeared that Sinead was either paralyzed or had a broken leg. However, there was no sign of her puppies anywhere, leading us to believe that she may still be pregnant. We sought the expertise of Doc Pierre, who assessed her and recommended X-rays to determine the extent of the damage caused by the vehicle impact.
The results of Sinead’s X-rays were not encouraging. Although she had no fractures in her limbs or pelvis, she had a fractured spine that had affected her nerves in her hind legs. However, there was a glimmer of hope, as Doc Gama, who conducted the X-rays, believed that laser therapy could potentially aid in her recovery. Thus, we embarked on an intensive seven-day laser therapy program to give Sinead the best chance at regaining her mobility.
Despite the challenges, Sinead showed remarkable progress. She was able to eat, drink, and perform bodily functions on her own, giving us hope that her bladder and other bodily functions were not severely affected. She underwent nine laser treatments in total, and there was a significant improvement in terms of muscle and bone growth. However, her spine remained out of alignment, and the possibility of regaining the use of her legs was uncertain.
Nevertheless, Sinead’s spirit remained unwavering. She charmed everyone with her sweet and loving demeanor, despite the trauma she had endured. We provided her with a wheelchair to help her move around comfortably, and she quickly adapted to her new mode of mobility. In fact, she even became an official “office dog” and made herself at home in the office, bringing joy to everyone with her presence.
We continued to provide Sinead with the care and support she needed, including bandaging her legs every morning to prevent sores as she scooted around. She showed incredible resilience and determination, and her progress inspired us all. We even took her and some of our other furry friends to the ocean, and Sinead experienced the joy of the water for the first time, despite her challenges.
Sinead’s journey has been a testament to the power of love, care, and medical intervention. Although her future remains uncertain, she has defied the odds and captured our hearts with her unwavering spirit. We are grateful for the support and donations we have received, which have enabled us to provide her with the necessary treatment and care. We remain hopeful that Sinead will find a loving forever home where she will continue to receive the love and care she deserves. In the meantime, she has found a special place in our hearts and will forever be remembered as a true fighter who overcame adversity with grace and courage. Thank you to everyone who has supported Sinead on her journey to recovery, and we ask for your continued prayers and well-wishes for this resilient dog. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of animals in need.
