One thing's for sure, it's back to the double-leash for her. Can't take anything for granted with these dogs. And you just know this experience is not going to be a future deterrent for her !

Also wanted to add: there seems to be no internal injuries :: PHEW !! :: or bleeding (they used a test called packed blood volume, or something like that).

Ok, here's the latest: Today Bosco got her nose (maxilla) wired at the dental vet. It's like braces, stabilizing the fracture using the existing teeth as anchors. Vet also cleaned up the cavity where the lost tooth was, and grafted on some cheek tissue to seal the hole. She came out of the anesthesi...

THanks again, for all your kind and supportive thoughts. I'll pass them on to Bosco - it can only help ! An update: I got pain meds for her today (Rimadyl), though she seems to cope with the pain much better now. Monday she's going to a dental vet and I'll find out then what the next steps are. msve...

It will be fine to wait a few days, as long as she is comfortable. I hope your vet sent you home with some GOOD pain meds! Actually, he didn't. Is there anything I can give her (I know dogs cannot have tylenol or ibuprofen) ? I know she's uncomfortable. It may be a mixed blessing though, cause it k...

Thank you, everybody, for your good wishes. I'm still upset about it, but it looks like she instinctively knows to not move much (she's been lying in her crate since she came home from the vet), and I'm feeding her pureed tuna w/ carrots, which she's eating enthusiastically. No, it won't work. It ha...

Bosco got kicked by horse, broke her nose

(I did a search on this but didn't find anything) Thanksgiving Day, all vets closed. Bosco got kicked by my mare (I didn't see it happen, but according to hubby who was walking her at the time, the leash got twisted and unclipped, and she got loose). Long story short, the emergency vet said her nose...

I very recently started feeding raw chicken quarters. The pelvic bones break into very sharp edges, yet these are thin small bones. Could these get lodged in the gut too? There's also that small needle-like thin bone (I guess the equivalent of our radius bone) attached to the long leg bone. After a ...

I've never heard of fasting a dog ! What's the rationale? I can understand not feeding a meal precisely at the same time each day, or being a few hours late, but to withhold food ???
