Rocky Sustained Two Bites!
Well, I guess they are bites, I am not sure what else to call them.
It happened at training Thursday night. In retrospect, I think there were just too many dogs (3 Great Danes, a smaller dog and Rocky) which led to several scuffles. Three of the dogs belonged to the trainer and one was boarding. The trainer broke up the scuffles very quickly and none of us were aware of any injuries. It wasn't till I got home and saw Rocky licking his leg several times that I saw what had happened. I cleaned the area as well as I could and put some antibiotic cream on it, but on Friday morning, Rocky was obviously favoring his leg and the area was very red. He cried every time I tried to look at it. My vet could not see him so I took him to one of the animal hospitals where they sedated him and cleaned up the bites. He came home Friday evening and was put on antibiotics and an anti inflammatory. He is eating good, going to the bathroom and the bites look much better this morning, thank goodness! He is to be on restricted activity for a week to ten days.
