Sometimes a small act of kindness can bring a wonderful change in someone's life. Chicago Police Department found these two starving dogs in an abandoned building back in July. These poor dogs were emaciated and sad looking, as well as they are so starving that they were become skeletons and on the verge of possible death. They didn't just look hungry, but they were also experiencing serious health consequences related to starvation. Look at these incredible photos which show their transformation from starving dogs to healthy pups.
Emmy, the sweet red dog, was especially ill. 'Her body was in starvation mode' according to the post of Trio Animal Foundation on its Facebook page. The treatment was started with the medication, and antibiotics.
Emmy was anemic, had an elevated white blood cell count and was dangerously dehydrated. Emmy was started on IV fluids, pain medication, antibiotics and a slow feeding regimen. This process helped her to prevent "refeeding syndrome" that could have overwhelmed her starved system and cause organ failure and even death.
They both needed to be reintroduced to food slowly. They were so underfed that too much at once could have easily overwhelmed their systems.
Things began to change right away for emmy, when she met a very special friend at the hospital where she was being treated. She fell for one of her vet technicians and so does he, according to TAF posted on Facebook. The two were so close that Anthony teared up when it was the time for Emmy to leave the hospital and he couldn't say Goodbye.
As for Oscar, he also made a full recovery. But he is still searching his "Anthony". He went through some special training to help him regain his trust in humans. The rescue posted that "After over two months of both medical and emotional rehabilitation... Oscar is ready for adoption.
What a stunning transformation of these two dogs by TAF with their love, proper care and yummy dog food! Thanks to all vets who worked tirelessly to reach their heartwarming transformation. Dogs are humans' best friends, they should be treated in a way that they deserve! This transformation is successful because of the power of rescuing pets.
