On April 23rd in Edmonton, a pit bull named Nalla jumped out of the truck bed she was riding in and was dragged behind the vehicle by her leash for a short distance. She experienced significant road-rash injuries to her toes.
At first, it appeared that the 6-year-old dog had sustained permanent injuries.
Instead, thanks to successful surgeries and daily bandage changes, Nalla is now expected to make a full recovery.
"She's a very healthy, very robust dog who's healed incredibly well," city veterinarian Dr. Milton Ness told CBC News.
"Nalla is a particularly exceptional dog. Early on in her therapy, she was allowing us to handle these sore, infected, torn up paws; and would do it without any problem," Ness told Global News.
"She's not going to lose any toes. She's not going to have any permanent wounds from this and she should go back to being 100 per cent," he added.Read More »from Pitbull dragged behind truck in Edmonton expected to fully recover
