The Stark county wife and mother woke up from a coma ten days later with both arms and legs partially amputated.

"We didn't know if she was going to live or die because we didn't know what was causing this", Premier said. "It was very hard to find out that they had to remove my legs and my arms. very hard to cope with".

Marie recalls feeling nauseous and having back pain, which she thought were symptoms of the flu. But then her temperature spiked and plummeted. "The dog saliva somehow managed to enter her system and resulted into this case of events", said Trainer's stepdaughter, Gina Premier, nurse practitioner at Ohio's Aultman Hospital.

Although medical staff at Aultman Hospital put Marie through aggressive treatments, she reportedly developed sepsis - a potentially life-threatening condition characterized by an unusually high heart and breathing rates - within hours. In just a couple of days, Marie had to be placed into a medically-induced coma as her limbs started to turn necrotic and gangrenous. The Capnocytophaga bacteria are present in the saliva of pets such as dogs.

Kobe said it's "fairly common" in dogs' oral cavities and can be transmitted through a bite, or sometimes just contact with saliva. "That organism is very virulent". "It has that ability to induce your immune system to do some pretty disgusting things", Kobe says, but usually doesn't.

Marie Trainer, from OH, contracted sepsis after her dog showed her a bit of affection and accidentally infected her with a rare bacteria. The bacteria causes blood clots that reduce blood flow, which is what eventually led to the amputations, without which she would have died.

While doctors did their best to remove as many blood clots as possible from Marie - it was too late to save her limbs.

It was there that her family learned she needed to undergo amputation, though they still didn't know what was wrong.

"It was so rapid in progression", says Premier. Such a severe reaction is very rare and only happens to roughly one in a million people.

Train derailment prompts evacuation in Canada
The province says the derailment involves chemical exposure, as well as damage to the rail line and disruption of road access. A train derailed near the hamlet of Irvine, causing an evacuation order for the area.

A man from the U.S. state of Wisconsin had to undergo 10 surgeries and forearm and leg amputations after getting infected with Capnocytophaga in 2018.

"Their immune system handled it differently", she said.

Both Dr. Kobe and Marie still love dogs and don't want to terrify owners.

Despite the circumstances, Marie can't wait to be reunited with her dogs. "If you get bit by a dog you definitely need to go on antibiotics and to wash your hands when playing with a dog, especially with an open cut", she added. If there are symptoms like redness or any signs of infection, seek medical treatment immediately and always tell your physician that you have pets.

"I'm still amazed at what it is".

The family told the news outlet they have no plans to get rid of their dogs.

Instead, they're focused on Marie's recovery.

The woman spent a total of 80 days in hospital recovering from the infection.
