She was found terribly injured, wandering near Meggett — desperately looking for someone to help.
When Daffodil was brought to Charleston Animal Society, our veterinarians got to work immediately to help her with road rash that covered more than 30% of her body. These friction burns were incredibly painful and she was immediately placed on pain medicine and antibiotics.
While no one is sure what happened, it would appear Daffodil was hit by a car and possibly dragged.
“On her first day, she had so much adrenaline, that she was able to stand,” said Charleston Animal Society Associate Director of Veterinary Care, Dr. Cody Dressler. “But on day two, the pain really hit her and she couldn’t stand, it was heartbreaking.”
Fast Forward Two Weeks
Today, Daffodil is on the road to recovery! She had surgery earlier this week that removed a large patch of damaged skin from her side. Daffodil’s paw pads are still very sore and she has bandages on her legs.
“Her treatment is continuing and the next step will be to place her with a foster family, but she will continue to come in to have her bandages changed every week for at least the next month,” Dressler said.
