Taka and her family were at home when a devastating fire broke out. Although his owners tried to save him, he got caught in the fire and they had to come out to save the rest of his family. Everything seemed lost, but a miracle happened …
Taka escaped the fire and ran down the street
Fortunately, one of the neighbors saw him and took him to Care More Animal Hospital in Martinez, Georgia. When he arrived at the hospital, he had severe burns around his eyes, ears, muzzle and abdomen.
Taka, an 8-year-old Shiba Inu, was fragile, in great pain, and had difficulty breathing, so hospital staff transferred him to the University of Georgia clinic to be connected to an oxygen machine. A few days later, when the dog’s condition ceased to be critical, he was referred to Care More Animal Hospital, where a veterinarian named Emily Martin felt a great deal of empathy for him.
Emily never left Taka
When Taka screamed in pain or felt sad, she would lie down next to him and stroke him to calm him down. The staff thought it would be best if she was responsible for the dog’s clinical case, as more than her vet, she had become his friend.
One of the things that surprises Emily the most about Taka is that he remains happy and energetic despite all the tragedies that have happened to him.
Emily told The Dodo:
A lot of times when animals are in pain, they’ll start biting just because they hurt, but he hasn’t once tried to bite. If anything, he’s comforted by people
Sadly, Taka was left blind, but it’s not yet clear how the rest of the burns will affect him, but Emily is optimistic about her recovery. “He’s in really great pain, he’s not out of the woods yet, but I hope he will be okay,” Emily said.
