Our Toy Manchester Terrier, Jackie, suffered some pretty severe injuries when he was attacked by our Akita mix, Brody, last Friday. He was in the puppy ER for the weekend. His spleen was protruding from his side so the doctors had to open him up to check for internal injuries and put everything back where it should be. Luckily nothing inside was damaged and he kept his spleen. After getting about a dozen drain tubes and 130 staples he is back home on the road to recovery. He gets a good amount of meds several times a day for pain management and to fight infection. I'm also giving him a few warm sponge baths a day and have to put warm compresses where he is heavily bruised twice a day to help blood flow/healing. The vet said some of his muscle was "hamburgered" and swelling has given him some temporary (hopefully) nerve damage. He also has a few broken/seperated ribs. He wasn't able to stand/walk for a few days after getting him home but he is begrudgingly getting up to follow me around now. It isn't pretty but everything is working so I'm pretty sure he'll get most of his function back and be somewhat "normal" again eventually. Terriers are tenacious fuckers. What he should look like..... .....what he looked like when I brought him home. Looks like an experiment..... .....with the drains removed and walking...... To make matters more ponderous Mrs. Lemmy got injured (somewhat minor) as well so all horse and dog care is on me instead or the normal split of the workload. Unfortunately there weren't many options for Brody. Before it is mentioned. I am an asshole and it's all my fault (well not really but someone has to be responsible).
