Slightly Graphic-NPBR-Thrown out on his Ear

Why buy from a breeder when there are plenty of homeless pups in shelters???

Slightly Graphic-NPBR-Thrown out on his Ear

Postby msvette2u » Wed Dec 12, 2007 6:17 pm





Laddie was thrown from a moving vehicle, and landed on his ear, splitting it open. He was found by a kind gentleman, up in a remote area of the country near a plastic bag which the man felt he'd been tied up in prior to being thrown from the car.

I seriously wish we could find people who do these things and make them see that animals are NOT TRASH.

Laddie was covered in fleas and has been treated for fleas, vaccinated and dewormed with two types of wormer, and he's now A Paw Up's newest foster dog.

He's also been bandaged and hopefully his ear will heal up fine.
We don't like to post graphic photos but in this case we want people to see and understand what rescues do and what horrible people are out there who do things like this to innocent animals.

Laddie will be altered 12-19-07 and ready for home after that.

OMG what a cute fuzzy baby!! How could you look at this sweet puppy and then toss him out of your window like trash??
I hope he gets the loving home to spoil the crap out of him like he deserves!

He bled ALOT - I mean, more than we, or the vet expected. She saw him earlier and said "Well it will bleed alot" but man, I mean, he was getting shocky.
Jeff started a line on him.
I don't know how long his ear has been injured - we had to rinse and rinse to figure out if he had other wounds but it's ALL from his ear.
We packed it with corn starch - the vet had JUST closed for the evening.
We then bandaged it back up, the bleeding looks to have slowed...

*edited*It turns out there's actually three fairly large (for an ear) holes in his ear and at least 1 is a "through and through". I finally got it to stop bleeding by putting two large magnets against either side of his ear, like a waffle iron :(
I don't know how good his ear will be tomorrow but if he makes it, we'll take him in 1st thing.
I'm a little annoyed that we took him right IN to the vet when we picked him up, and she looked at him, said "these can bleed alot" and left for lunch. She never offered to give us anything or cauterize it. In retrospect, she should have at least done that.
Never going back THERE with an emergency :po:

Ear wounds do bleed a ton. I was always told to wrap the ear and then wrap it against the head.

How is he this morning??

We did that and it continued to bleed.
Last night, his gums were pure white from the blood loss.
We managed to stem the blood FINALLY but today when we brought him to the vet, they said he's too weak for anything but tomorrow they want to see him, they will neuter him after he's on fluids for another 24hrs. and do something with his ear at that time if it is still a problem.
They left the magnets on there!

So he's alive, but lost a great amount of blood. I'm so mad about the other vet, yesterday, I could spit :po:
By the time we realized it was really an issue, it was too late to do anything at our primary vet!

The worst mess I have ever seen while working at the vet clinic was an ear injuy..the dog shook its head an literally sent blood flying EVERYWHERE. (fortunately, the lovely owner had let him come in without a leash and he had roamed the entire lobby, hall, etc as well. )we cauterized his ear and viola..he was fine. but good grief can those things bleed.
