Bert is about three maybe four months old. He has several broken ribs, and a broken pelvis. The wound on his back was from a firecracker being glued to his back and then lit. There were pieces of glue in his coat. He had charred skin and the wound was horrible. There is not much to be done about the ribs and the pelvis - they have to heal on their own but the burn wound required immediate medical attention as it was full of pus and fly eggs. Even while being in such excruciating pain, Bert wanted to be touched and petted constantly. He is the sweetest most affectionate little pup.He could not sit, lie down or walk. He just stood with his head down.
Through all the handling and cleaning he was a doll. No growls, snarls, whimpers or bites. He underwent a debriding of the wound under anesthesia and when we went back to pick him up the veterinarian said she wanted to keep him for possibly up to a week to make sure he was healing well and that the wound could be dressed and redressed by the staff. He was given fluids as he was pretty dehydrated and loads of pain medications and antibiotics.
