Default Our dog got injured :(

Hey just a sad story here:

We went camping this weekend friday night to sunday afternoon and friday night one of our dogs got caught up on a sharp corner of something and got a big gash in her leg. Well it barely bled and she seemed fine, and we cleaned it, etc. Sunday it seemed the same, we bathed her, cleaned again, and glued it, and it seemed fine. Well today we get home from work and HOLY CRAP it opened up bigger than probably 2x what it was and it was like hollow inside. Smelled real bad too. So we went to the vet and they said it was dying/rotting skin/flesh and muscle and they had to do surgery(scrape it out and clean it then stitch. I'm surprised how fast it opened up like that. Anyway I'm glad she is ok we love our pets, bummed it was $$$$$$$$$$ but we have it saved so no big deal I guess. Man's best friend

I hate to hear that. My blue pit is my baby and right now he ripped out one of his toenails (I know not that serious) but he's limping around and not using his back leg. It's sad to watch him being cripple. Vets are very expensive and they seem to always have to do some procedure that is big money. I think they are abusing the market on animals because they can exploit how attached we are to animals and pay what they ask.

So sorry to hear about this Sean but I'm glad she is okay. We are also a dog family with two of them so I know how attached you get to them. At least they were able to clean up the wound and save her.

Yeah we are just kicking ourselves for not taking her right away because it would probably have just been stitches and antibiotics, and less suffering for her. But we learn from our mistakes I guess. We normally leave this stuff along but I think just because we were out camping and in the car traveling and what not it was just irritated and couldn't heal.

Honestly this vet was pretty fair IMO. Still a lot of money but not crazy. Especially since it was after hours, last minute, etc. they really could have taken advantadge, but it wasn't too bad. Again, considering the medicine to put her under, do the surgery, antibiotics, etc. oh and keeping her overnight(boarding alone would be expensive) really pretty fair.

Sorry to hear about your dog Sean, glad to hear they were able to treat her and she'll be ok! Know how you feel though, my dog is my baby. I have spent plenty of money on her over the years for various illnesses and her vet is a bit pricey but they've always worked with me. They are great and definitely got what they paid for when they went to school as they are always spot on with their diagnosis so more time is spent treating my dog and much sooner rather than a bunch of tests that don't find anything. I make it a point to take them something at Christmas, too.
