‘SKIN AND BONES’: Neglected dog in tied up trash bag makes remarkable recovery

Cora the German Shepherd is recovering after she was neglected and abandoned in Florida last month.

Cora is on her way to making a full recovery after being treated like trash.

The abandoned German Shepherd was found by a concerned citizen who saw a man about to throw a tied-up trash bag into a ditch in early April.

When the woman found out what was inside the bag, she eventually persuaded the man to hand it over and brought the defenceless dog to Veterinary Emergency Group (VEG) in Tampa, Fla., to begin Cora’s recovery.

“The 9 month-old pup, weighing only 22 pounds, was completely malnourished and didn’t even have the strength to lift her head up,” VEG said in a release about the pet, according to People.com. “Cora was also covered in urine and feces, her gums white from anemia. She was literally just skin and bones.”

Veterinarian Lisa Soyka has detailed Cora’s journey to better health on social media for the past month.

Soyka began the poor pooch on IV fluids, IV antibiotics, and deworming medication. And to treat her severe anemia, she was given blood transfusions.

After getting treatment and eating a better diet, there was a noticeable turn in Cora’s health.

“She is doing so much better,” Soyka wrote in an April 9 update. “She’s eating like a champ, she’s walking with little assistance, her diarrhea has resolved, she’s wagging her tail more and has gained 2.2 lbs!”

Cora has since been placed in a foster home where she continues to recover.

“She obviously will have several months of recovery and physical therapy but I’d say so far her will to live proves there is a purpose for her and something bigger out there,” Soyka added.

Just getting some PT with Sabrina Butterfield ❤️ She’s doing great! She loves just laying in the crate with the door...
