Time and time again, we read stories that make no sense. How can anyone hurt an animal they’re supposed to love? Or how can anyone inflict pain on an animal they don’t even know? It’s beyond our understanding. All we can do is pray for their recovery and raise awareness so animal cruelty laws continue to evolve, forcing harsher punishments.
One innocent animal, a dog named Sky, was hit so hard that his head was cut in half. No one is sure how he managed to survive the impact. It’s a miracle really. But once found by rescuers, immediate medical treatment would be his only hope to survive. It was a race against time.
Sky’s skull was severed, his left eye completely lost. The impact destroyed his zygomatic arch. Muscles and nerves were so severely damaged as well as his jaw. The attack that was meant to kill Sky didn’t because his spirit is so strong– he hung on and fought for survival.
Sky’s only hope was to get maxillofacial reconstructive surgery. Sky’s jaw was locked which made eating and panting impossible. This had to be addressed immediately! It was life or death.
After a CT scan, the medical staff decided Sky could survive surgery but it was an unprecedented one. Normally, a dog in this situation would be euthanized. But Sky seemed determined to live. He was doing well on pain medication and IV therapy.
