Flies were swarming her head, as if they were just waiting for her to die.They tried giving her food, but she was too weak to eat, so they wrapped her up in a blanket to take her to the shelter.

Back at the sanctuary, vets got to work covering her wound in powder to kill the maggots. It took several hours for it to work, and they could clean it out.

The feeble dog was extremely dehydrated, so rescuers started her on a an IV fluid treatment, which she had to stay on for several days.On the second day, they started by sedating her, before cleaning out the wound and removing the dead tissue that had formed.
