Poor Puppy

Posted by David McKell On July - 28 - 2010

Well my dog Phantom managed to somehow cut his foot last night. He cut a chuck of the padding between his toes on his left foot. This left plenty of mess when he tried to walk inside and where he was waiting outside.

Here he is looking very sad with his new plastic bag shoe taped to his leg to stop him licking the wound stop the blood going all over the floor. But as you can see i didnt do a very good job of bandaging and him following me everywhere didnt help.

After another wash, rebandage and new shoes he was ready for bed. He slept on the floor next to me and didnt lick or try bite through the bags which was nice. We got up in the morning and the wound had stopped bleeding. As always he was very excited for a car ride, even to the vet. He got to meet lots of new friends at the vet however got too excited and broke open the wound again so we bled all over the vet floor. Anyway after about 1 1/2 hours waiting he got tranquilized. I had to walk him around for abit, was funny watching him start losing his balance then eventually not being able to walk. As expected he was also sick due to the tranq. After a little more waiting we were brought back in for drugs and to get stitched up. All done, had to carry him back out to the car, put him in the back of the van. Once we got home i noticed he got up and tried walking around. I carried him inside and put him on the chair where he was quite comfortable and stayed there till he slept off the effects.
