Alright… the dogs have been back not quite 24 hours and we have our
first “Holy crap, Doc, we’re bringing you a dog…” and our first “We need
an appointment for…”
Those of you who are familiar with our
Horde at Pug Hollow may remember Grigori Raspugin, and his fatty tumor
that we call his “moob”. It’s been on the list of non-critical surgeries
that we eventually needed to get done, but he decided to move it up to a
critical “we have to do this today” status.
He had a puncture wound on the “moob”. He was treated for the puncture, and antibiotics were administered.
you haven’t dealt with them, puncture wounds are tricky. They’re super
difficult to clean and treat, because of the nature of the wound (give
me a laceration any day of the week). In this case it decided to
abscess. The abscess ruptured, which is usually a good thing (we can
then clean and treat and clear up) BUT in this case it wasn’t. Because
of the nature of the “moob” and the work of gravity, when the abscess
ruptured so did the “moob”. This left a large lump of nasty, infected
fatty tissue hanging out of his skin.
So Raspugin is at the vet right now for an emergency “moob-ectomy”.
is Lovepug. One of her empty eye sockets is trying to get infected. I
suspect that she has itched it raw. She has an appointment at 11.
