A DOG brutally savaged by two pitbulls on Purley Way last month is on the road to recovery.

Ranu Jhoollun was walking her dog Coco, a two-and-a-half-year-old golden retriever, on the playing fields at Purley Way, when the pitbulls set upon her beloved pet.

Karen Davison, the practice manager at Ann Nelson Vets in Pampisford Road, South Croydon, said she thought Coco was dead in her kennel when she walked in after the attack.

"She was really at death's door and I have never seen such horrific injuries on a dog," she said.

However, thanks to a some pioneering new treatment, Coco is now on the mend.

"Her liver was failing and we were about to put her down when a new piece of equipment called K-Laser that we are using began to work," Karen added.

"It appears to be amazing for wounds and she looks completely healed – usually it takes months.

"When I came into the clinic after the weekend she had been brought in, she looked up and wagged her tail having been lying there unable to move a few days before.

"It's a testament to her nature that she has pulled through."

Coco's owner Ronan Pigott, from Purley, said: "We are so relieved she is OK. She has some wounds at the back of her neck but is otherwise fine and is still playing with other dogs."
