FEHR!!!! I am so sorry this happened to Dillon! I know how close you have gotten to him, but he's still that sweet little thing that you've grown to love. I can bet you a thousand dollars that this will bring you that much closer to each other. He needs you right now!!

It isn't as bad as it looks. I bet once the swelling goes down it'll look better. Of course, we are all seeing it from a computer...only you knows what this little fellow is going through!

We all know things happen for a reason. Someone has a grand plan for all us creatures! You all will be in my prayers!

Thank you guys so much! Your support means alot to me! I will be sure to give Dillon a hug from everyone! ( I give him so many

Americancowgurl31391-Tana is my four year old mare that Just Dressage It is training for a while! Thank goodness she is their right now she is not all the popular in this household right now!

Sharon-Thank you, thank you, thank you.

This is what my vet has told me to do for him:
-clean the cut once a day with Stanhexidine. I have been doing it twice though just because he tends to rub it on everything because it's very itchy.
-Apply DermaGel (I absolutly swear by this stuff) twice a day to the wound.
-If there is any swelling apply Domoso AROUND the wound. I did this for the first two days and their is hardly any swelling anymore.
-20cc of Duplocillian(sp?) longacting ever two days!

And yes he is UTD on all his shots ( I have a vet certificate from the rescue he comes from) It says that his shots need to be renewed in September. Should I get them early because he has an injury?

Ahearn (((Hugs))) Thanks so much for the heartfelt reply! I'm more tore up about it than Dill Man. He is not in pain anymore and going about his life like normal! LOL

Appy I will be sure to keep you guys updated! After I clean it this afternoon I will add updated picutres.

Once again thanks to everyone that replied and prayed for my baby. It really means alot!

Thanks so much for the update, Tiff - I was starting to worry! Sounds like you and the vet have everything under control... I'm sure Dillon is loving the extra attention ;) I can't wait for updated pictures to see how it looks now, I bet the swelling has gone down a tad? I still don't think it's half as bad as those first pictures show - that's all swelling and dried blood.

It's really not half as bad as it looks in those pictures. But still looks pretty awful!

I love my He really calmed me down the second time I talked to him. He said that it's really not that bad. The lip area actually heals up rather quickly and 50% of what was ripped off should grow back! might not be able to see his teeth!!

I wish I could get a vid of me cleaning it but I don't have enough hands. It makes it a game to try and catch the water with his tounge when I'm cleaning I hope that he doesn't get bitter about me touching his mouth area though, it could make bridling him harder later in life.

The worst part I have to say is the needle. I feel like he's going to hate me because I have to rub his cut and stab

Yay for an update- glad everything's going pretty well with him. ;) Aww, he won't hate 'ya. It's for his own good!

Thanx for the update, I think about him everyday. He is lucky to hava a good mom like you .

Thanks so much! You are so sweet Cory-Boy!

I was shocked to see those pics! But, I'm glad he is doing well - funny how animals don't fake the pain- when it hurts it hurts, when it feels better, it feels better :P . So glad things are looking up!

Thanks so much! As soon as my son goes down for a nap I will head out and take pictures of Dill Man for everyone to see how it is healing.
