Stillborn Puppy Takes Her First Breath 30 Minutes After Vets Declare Her Dead

Any medical professional will probably say that one of the hardest parts of the job is to witness a patient pass away. Doctors will see the sick come and go, some old and some young. Vets know that not every animal born in their care will live to see another day.

A few vets in Aurora, CO, had to accept that a stray’s tiny puppy would be lost. The stray, brought to them by a stranger, was having difficulty giving birth.

The vets helped her by performing a C-section. When the puppy emerged, they were convinced she was a stillborn. Shegave no indication of life: There was no cry; no breathing.

The vets had to turn their attention to the mother, to make sure that at least she could emerge from the ordeal alive.

Thirtyminutes later, the vets heard the impossible: the puppy suddenly came to life.

Vets know that, after going so long without showing a sign, the little one should not have been alive. There was no explanation for her survival, which iswhy they named her Miracle.

Both Mom and her pupare doing well, thanks to getting such good care from loving humans.
