|I didn't have a good time for Dog knows how long. My now FD found me on a busy highway when I almost got killed. He stopped his rig and saved me. I had porcupine quills in my paw and was really hurting. Mt FD pulled them out and for that part I felt better. He noticed I had burrs buried in my fur but had no way of getting them out. He saw there was a cut and some blood just under my ear but couldn't see how bad.
For 2 days we travelled in this big truck until we got to Nova Scotia. That is when I met my FM. She use to be a groomer so getting the burrs off was no biggie. When she got them off, she saw how bad I was injured. It was really late and I wasn't bleeding etc. so she took me to the vet the next morning. Turns out it is a very serious injury. Besides the 2 inch long cut.. in that were 2 puncture wounds that went deep into my ear canal. Mom said it seemed like I was deaf or very hard of hearing in that ear. The vet confirmed it. So the vet washed out the punctures and when she squirted the solution in the wounds it came out my ear .I got stitches but some is left open to drain. I should know in about 3 - 4 weeks if my hearing is ok in that ear. If the scar tissue forms, I will need surgery.
Now I am only about 10 mths old. So please pray that I recover compleletly and don't need surgery or remain deaf in that ear.
