A UK mom-of-four was put into an induced coma and had to have her hands amputated after she suffered sepsis from a bite by the family’s pooch, according to reports.

Michelle Ellis, of Plymouth, suffered a small wound when her pooch bit her as she put it in its cage, the Plymouth Herald reported.

After her flu-like symptoms worsened, Ellis was admitted to Derriford Hospital, where she was diagnosed with the potentially life-threatening condition that occurs when the body’s infection response damages tissues.

She was then put into an induced coma and placed on dialysis, according to the outlet.

“Her kidneys are still not working and the extent of the damage caused is uncertain at this time,” Ellis’ sister Melanie said, The Sun reported.

“She is still unaware of the situation with her hands. They are waiting to see if she is strong enough to absorb this,” she said, adding that her sister suffered multiple organ damage.

Melanie said it will cost £32,000 – about $44,000 — for each hand to be replaced with a prosthetic that will have to be renewed every five years.

Ellis’ daughter, Keana, 24, said the dog’s bite was “around the size of a cigarette burn, so nothing was thought of it and she left it — and then this happened.”

The woman’s Facebook page shows her with two dogs, including a pug named Mabel, but it was unclear which one bit her. The dog that did bite her was to be put down after the tragic incident.

The family is holding a fundraiser to help raise money toward Ellis’ treatment.

“The fundraiser is to help pay for her rehabilitation and any costs that will come along with that, but also just for her to be able to have a little treat when she starts getting better,” Keana told the Plymouth Herald.

“Hopefully it will be a nice treat for her, and it will mean she won’t have any extra worries. Hopefully, she won’t have to worry about money for a little bit,” she added.

Meanwhile, the family has not been able to visit Ellis, who emerged from the coma in recent days, because of the coronavirus pandemic.

“We’re not allowed to go and visit her at the moment, which is making it a lot harder. The hardest thing is that we weren’t expecting this at all,” Keana said.

“My mind now is set on raising as much money as we can with the fundraiser and raising awareness, so that she has a good quality of life when she does get better.”
