|The Miraculous Power of Love
Don’t believe in miracles? Well, it’s time to start believing.
This lady and her husband live close to the Mdzananda Animal Clinic. Not too far from their home a stray dog was roaming the area. Their hearts went out to this dog and they started leaving food and water for him outside their house. This dog soon became their pet and wiggled himself into their hearts and home.
A few months later the dog got knocked over by a motor vehicle. The damage was severe and they rushed him to the Mdzananda Animal Clinic. After thorough examination and x-rays by Dr Brian and Dr Blessing it was established that the dog’s pelvis was crushed. The x-rays showed that the damage was so severe that the dog would never be able to use his hind legs again. The vets decided that it would be best to put the dog down as he was in severe pain and he would never be able to walk again.
This is when the miracle happened.
Lazola, our animal welfare assistant, called the owners in to explain the situation to them and that it would be best to put their dog down as he would not be able to walk again. While talking to Lazola, the dog was brought out of the hospital and assisted by staff to urinate. The dog was lying on the ground when he looked up and saw his mom and dad. He miraculously got up. Brocken pelvis and all. This dog’s love for his owners was greater than his broken pelvis. Disregarding extreme pain, he got up and walked towards his owners.
Our doctors could not believe it. It was an absolute miracle. The x-rays showed that it was not possible! To them this was pure proof that love and the mind can overpower the body.
Dr Brian and Dr Blessing decided to put the dog on long term cage rest. This dog’s healing depended mainly upon his own will power to not give up. Today he is safely back at home and walking!
