So Tom and I were at the office yesterday, we got a missed call from out BO (on both of our cell phones) and I got a missed call from my mom.(She's my emergency contact) Then she calls the office line saying that my BO had called saying that Montana had gotten a cut above his eye and there was a flap of skin hanging down.
After I got off the phone with my mom, I called my BO. She has just gotten off the phone with our vet and he was coming down, so I knew it was more than just a little cut.
When Tom and I arrived at the barn, we had no idea what to expect.
This is what we saw.
It was bad, but I didn't think it was all that bad. I was just very nervous if he had actually scratched his eye.
The vet was there in like 20 min. He sedated Montana, then clipped around his eye and was able to see the extent of the injury. It was a doozie!
Fortunately, he missed his eye
This is the best shot I have of the actual cut. I'm sorry its dark.
*Warning* Graphic Videos!
Here's two videos of the vet scraping his cut.
The vet then numbed his eye area and gave him another sedative because he was moving his head a bit and the vet didn't want to take any chances.
He stictched him up very well.
His eye is swollen and he seems to be in a bit of pain.
We're giving him bute, antibiotic ointment in his eye and also some pills.
His stitches come out in 7-10 days.
My poor baby :(
