I love taking my dog, a tall yellow lab named Lacy, everywhere I go… To the mountain, the beach, Downtown and everywhere in between. But be careful at the Dog Parks, some people are mean and the worst injury my dog has ever gotten was yesterday when her and another dog collided after going after the same tennis ball… needless to say, she got the worst of it.
The other dog (a stockier black lab) had a cut on her lip, but created no where near as much blood as Lacy had. Lacy was drooling blood and dripped it all over the concrete as we were leaving the park.
I had to take her to the pet hospital for some stitches and a few teeth to be pulled out. The veterinarian said she hasn’t seen a case before where the tooth socket got broken. She pulled a few teeth out of Lacy and popped back in the K9 (luckily the blood vessel wasn’t compromised).
A wire now spans from one K9 to the other to hold the loose one in place. Two weeks no rough housing and eight weeks soft foods and then the wire can be taken out. It would have been a lot worst.
