The good people at the Vet Ranch are responsible for a number of amazing pet rehabilitation clips and this one just might be the most incredible one of all. The dog you are about to meet is named Myles and when Myles first arrived at the Vet Ranch, his prognosis was quite grim. One of his legs was paralyzed and since he could not lift up the leg on his own, it had developed a horrifically nasty wound.
Viewers may be shocked to see that Myles is so happy, considering his condition, but this pup will not let anything take away his smile. Watching him hobble around the Vet Ranch with a massive grin on his face should serve as a reminder to the rest of us that our petty problems are nowhere near this difficult to bear.
When the dog was found, he was homeless and the vet does not know how long he has been nursing the injury for. The sore is large and raw and we can surmise that Myles has been dealing with this issue for quite some time. We cannot believe that this adorable pup has managed to maintain such a sweet demeanor in the face of these troubles.
The leg is beyond repair, so the vet decides to perform an amputation, to provide the animal with some much needed relief. If the leg is not amputated, Myles would continue to try and walk on it, so it must be removed for his own safety going forward. Thanks to the Vet Ranch, he will no longer have to worry about this wound and has a much better chance of being adopted.
After all, no one wants to adopt a puppy with a gaping wound on its leg. In addition to the amputation, the animal surgeon also removed a great deal of dead weight from the dog, so that he could move around much more easily and feel light as a feather when he woke up from the anesthetic. If you would like to find out more about what happens next, then you will have to watch this incredible clip in its full entirety.
A story like this one does not come along every day, as most dogs in Myles’ predicament are usually euthanized before they have a chance to mend. Be sure to share this tale with your friends and family, so that they can appreciate it, as well.
