The case in India was unlike any a veterinarian or veterinary student would routinely see in the United States, said Katie Holmes, V13.

The emaciated female dog was found on the side of the road with severe injuries from being struck by a car. Someone brought the dog in to All Creatures Great and Small, an animal sanctuary about a ninety-minute drive outside of New Delhi, India.
