How does he treat the dog?

The doctor didn't give any food to Tricki. He gave him plenty of water for two days. After two adys, the dog started showing interest in his surroundings. On the third day, the doctor saw Tricki played with the other dogs but he didn't take any interest in the food. Next day, the doctor put a separate bowl for Tricki and he was happy to see that Tricki jostled his way towards the supper bowl. Soon, he started showing rapid progress. He ran about with the dogs all day and had the fun of the friendly scrimmages. Soon, he became part of the gang.
