A Labrador in the throes of a severe epileptic seizure was rescued thanks to the timely intervention of a patrol from the Telese Terme Police Station alerted by the dog’s owners while they were in transit with their car along the SS 372, known as “Telesina. “, near the junction for Faicchio, in the province of Benevento.
The dog, in the throes of a crisis, perhaps due to the scorching heat, escaped the owners who had stopped in a lay-by. In a panic, the two tourists then alerted the policemen who, arriving on the spot, managed to retrieve the animal in a ditch and, very calmly, to load it aboard their car which arrived with sirens at the veterinary office of Dr. Antonio Lepore in Telese Terme.
The vet immediately rescued the dog who, after a while, returned to normal and was able to resume the trip for the holidays to the delight of his owners. “Patients are always a little bit special, only their stories make them special.
