We were walking Mesquite Monday morning, she was in some tall grass when she let out a war whoop. I thought she had stepped on something sharp, when got over to her she had a big gash in her tummy just ahead of the right rear leg.
We took her to the vet and it took 15 stitches to close her back up.
Someone had broken off an old steel fence post about 8 inches above the ground.
She is on pain meds and antibiotics.
We were darn lucky, because it didn’t bleed much, and we were a mile from the house. I have keeping her in the house.
I sure hope she comes out okay?
Here is our Mesquite protecting her injury. She hates that tee shirt.
We are sad to her that Mesquite has a serious accident. At the same, we are relieved that it was not life-threatening. Thank you, for being quick to get her the care she needed. We will all say a prayer for her speedy and complete recovery.
