Animal Aid Unlimited, an NGO that provides emergency rescue services for stray animals in Udaipur, uploaded an amazing video on how they rescued a seriously injured street dog named “Kalu”.
The dog was found in a hole near a construction site and his face had literally been eaten up by maggots after he had apparently crawled into a hole to die. Quoting the agency – “His face looked as if a bomb had exploded in his forehead. There was a gaping hole in his face and was infested with maggots that were literally eating him alive”.
When he was first brought to Animal Aid, it was decided to euthanize him. However, looking at his will power, the agency decided to try out a treatment. A powder was poured over his wound to kill the maggots. Thereafter, the dead maggots were removed and wound cleaned. After 3 months of daily cleaning of wound, Kalu is miraculously healed and wound clean.
While it is gory for a lot of us to view the video or even read this, the agency that undertook this activity deserves a definite salute.
Well done the members of Animal Aid!
