Emaciated dog found on Youngstown's east side
An emaciated dog was found on Youngstown's east side on Friday.
The Mahoning County Dog Warden says the dog likely had not eaten anything substantial in at least a month.
The dog's stomach was full of debris like bones. Officials say the dog likely ate things like roadkill or whatever she could find to survive.
She has since been moved into her own room with two beds, toys, and water. The dog was also able to have her first small meal as part of her recovery regimen.
The dog warden warns that if you find an emaciated dog, seek immediate veterinary care. If you can't get the dog to a vet, feed the dog a small amount at a time.
Feeding the dog too much can lead to organ failure, the dog warden says.
