What Does The Bible Say About Sick Animals? In Luke 14:5, Jesus asked His followers, “If one of you has a child or an ox that falls into a well on the Sabbath day, will you not immediately pull it out?” This teaches us the importance of taking proper care of our sick animals and showing mercy to them any time they are in distress, regardless of any human law or tradition. It is, as in this case, a Jewish law that forbids anyone from doing any work on Sabbath.
