Paralyzed Wolf Piddle Paddle

Piddle Paddle, a young white wolf, was once named Mariah because she ran like the wind. Suddenly at age 2, in the blink of an eye, she was a paraplegic. Experts were baffled. They could offer no hope. The vet compassionately suggested we end her life – at best she could only drag herself around; they would have to diaper her (hence Piddle Paddle); give her intensive nursing care for life; there would be other problems.

She was so young; had such a zest for life, they couldn’t bear her vibrant young life being unlived, and took her home. She went into a deep depression, lying unmoving on their bed, eyes dull. Paralysis is a horrible death sentence to a wild animal. Paralysis means no hope.

For nine days she lay, getting thinner and thinner, a white wraith fading away into nothingness. They begged her not to give up. We tried everything traditional and alternative medical could offer. They promised if she lived we would never give up until she could run again. We promised to make a special place where she could run free like the wind.

    Wild Wolves speak; That is incredible, how she pulled it through. We only feed our animals on raw meat, raw fish, raw eggs etc. They fly when they run. Commercial foods are the worse foods for the animals, no matter their station...

  6. Mini Lou,
    I just Googled doggie wheelchair. Lots of resources.

  7. My wolf hybrids Loved raw chicken necks!
    We fed them home made food. They lived 12 and 13 years.

    Wow so much determination. That is amazing. I'm so glad she found her will to live. People could learn a lot from the wolfs if they would only try.
