David and Jan, who initially cared for Mingo, did their best to provide for him, but his condition continued to deteriorate. Determined to help him, a team of rescuers took on the challenging task of capturing Mingo, who was ready to fight to protect himself. After successfully capturing him, they discovered that Mingo was suffering from a severe outer ear infection, malassezia, and had tested positive for ehrlichia, a tick-borne disease. Furthermore, Mingo had a broken bone in his left hind leg, making it difficult for him to put weight on it. To add to his troubles, he was also isolated due to dengue fever concerns.
Despite these obstacles, Mingo’s rescuers were unwavering in their commitment to his well-being. They provided him with medical care, including baths and anesthesia to treat his conditions. Mingo’s progress was slow but steady, and eventually, he tested negative for distemper, indicating that the virus was not active in his system. Seeing Mingo wake up and wag his tail was a powerful moment that confirmed the impact of their efforts.
Mingo’s story is a testament to the dedication and compassion of his rescuers, who formed an unstoppable team to ensure he received the care he needed. It also highlights the resilience of animals like Mingo, who can overcome adversity with love and care. Today, Mingo is thriving in his new life, thanks to the unwavering commitment of his rescuers and their determination to give him a beautiful life. His story serves as an inspiration to all those who work tirelessly to rescue and rehabilitate animals in need, proving that with compassion and perseverance, miracles can happen.
