No one saw it coming. We were all outside, running to go inside. Tux and I were fussing and he snagged my right side with a tooth. Mom saw it all happen but didn't realize I had actually gotten injured until I was in for a few minutes. She noticed the blood and tried to wash me up to inspect the spot.
Off to the vet we went. The vet took a quick look and said we had a couple of options. One was to not mess with it and I could take a course of antibiotics to let it heal up on it's own. Or I could stay at the vet for awhile while they made me sleepy and put in some staples. That was more expensive but that was what Mom wanted to have done.
The vet put me "under", stapled me up, and brought me back out. All within an hour. Mom came back real soon. I have some Clavamox to take and then I have to go back to have the staples removed in about 10 days.
I was groggy on the way home but I didn't lay down. My head sure was droopy. Mom and I snuggled under a soft cover on her chair for a couple of hours. I should sleep very well tonight.
Oh and they had hooves there. Mom bought us each one. I plan on enjoying mine tomorrow.
Aw poor Drover! I sure hope you're feeling better real soon, pal!
Once upon a time a long time ago, mom's other Weimaraner and her Springer Spaniel got into a tiff and there was a tear on the Weimaraner's inner leg. Mom rushed her to the vet and he said he wasn't going to do anything, just washed it out with some saline solution. He said it would heal up, but mom thought there'd be a big scar, but the vet was right, it healed without a scar at all! With no stitches or staples. Hmm...She still doesn't understand that at all...no stitches or staples.
Hope you feel better soon.
I hope you are feeling better Drover.
We hope you feel better soon!
aww...poor Drover, sure hope you feel better soon!
Thanks Pals! I am up and running this morning, even before breakfast. We got to enjoy our new hooves, before Zoe is up. She takes them away from us. :-(
Interesting Doo. I had lots of bumps removed a couple of years ago and the vet didn't stitch them closed and didn't give any antibiotic. They got real yucky and oozed a lot. Then Mom got some antibiotic for me and I wore a little t-shirt to keep Zoe from licking the crud off. They healed up fine then.
Mom nearly fell over when they told her how much it cost yesterday. :-0
Don't chew da on da staples..you will get the Cone of Shame!!
That's right Sophie, I don't want the cone. Mom has the 2 t-shirts I wore before when I had the bumps removed. I may get to wear the striped one today!
Tux, mom's says they gave her some anti-biotic cream to put on the boo boo to help it heal and it was in a place that Cyndi couldn't reach to lick the crud off. ;o)
Hope your feeling better soon. I wear t-shirts too!
Oh, accidents happen! Good your mom noticed it and took care of it right away!
Wow Drover I'm sorry you had to go thru all that! Mom worries about me and Molly playing sometimes cause Molly is so much bigger than me and we get crawzy sometimes! Isnt it great having momma's that love us so much and takes care of us!
Feel better pal!
Woof Woof, Buddy
hope it gets better soon!
We sure hope you get to feeling better soon!
Uno says she knows how you feel!
Hmm, I don't know why Tux made my comment up there. I'm the one with the owie on my side. I will have Mom take a picture of it to post.
Don't know how I missed this, I hope you're doing much better now! I had something similar happen to me at doggy day care, I had to go under too but I also had to wear the cone of shame for a while cause I had a drain in the wound too. It was not fun!
