My redneck vet Christmas **GRAPHIC BLOODY PHOTOS**

I am sharing this because someone might benefit from the information. I shared on here that my TB was put down before christmas due to Colic. After that my Shar-Pei bubba dug out and got tore up by *something*. I found him after searching the desert around my house on Christmas eve. Needless to say, there was nothing I could find that was open (vets). He was pretty bad off, so it was this or a bullet... (i was freaking out, i'd never seen anything this bad before). Anyway, my mom came over, with some sutures and we washed the cut out with beta-dine/water. He had a lot of grit and dirt way down in the cuts, we got out what we could, but had to sew him up with some left. I really didn't think he was going to make it. He just some of his stitches out today, and he is fine. We bought penicillin at the feed store, and treated him with that. He was seen by a vet, 3 days after and they installed a drainage tube... but other than that said we did a pretty stand up job. We also ran out of suture wire and finished up the job with dental floss. Anyway, just wanted to show that no matter how dire the situation, sometimes some good old fashioned ingenuity can go a long ways. I am attaching pictures to show how bad it looked. If they are innapropriate, I apologize in advance. Take care and happy new year!

OW! Poor pup! I've had to do the same with some of my terriers - but usually because of a snow storm so unable to drive anywhere :( thankfully I am a vet tech, and now I make sure I always have sutures and similar availab. Had to doctor my own hand up when it got between a dog fight, worst snowstorm in 20yrs, couldn't leave the house.

Good job!

Good work. The dog had no anesthesia? He held still for all that? What a good dog.

Wow. Looks like a dog/coyote attack. They typically go for the ears. Or it could have a been a hog. But I'm glad you guys reacted and got him taken care of! (And still followed up with a vet! As a tech I see way to many do-it-at-homes go very badly because they don't follow up with a vet.)

I think he was in shock... He was asleep most of the time when we did it. He did not cry or yelp. He sometimes fought to be laying upright instead o his side.

Oh, and his ear no longer moves. All of the ligaments were severed. I did not know how to repair them. He won't win any beauty pageants, but he is alive and wagging his tail!

Gotta pick your battles. I'd much rather have happy and healthy, than not :(. Just keep an eye on the inside of his ear. He maybe a little more prone to ear infections since he can't move it out/up to air out his ear.
