This is the story of two helpless puppies who were discovered wandering the streets with swollen bellies. Because the dogs were malnourished, their levels of an essential blood protein called albumin were extremely low.
Fortunately, the two dogs were discovered just in time by rescuers, who took them to a vet clinic. Because they had never been around humans, the dogs were terrified of them. So they just stared at one wall while clinging to another.
However, the pups were examined by the vet, who discovered that they had anemia from malnourishment and ticks. The dogs would require extensive treatment, including blood transfusions.
The vet then drained the fluid from the puppies’ swollen bellies after sedating them to prevent them from feeling pain, as this was a very dangerous procedure.
Thankfully, it worked really well, and the puppies finally woke up an ate a normal meal. They now love their caretakers, and will be available for adoption when they are completely healed. What a happy ending!
