Cut on back

Recommended Posts

Dahitman44

My 4 month old yellow lab has an injury on his back. It looks like he got caught on something like a fence. His skin is peeled back a little bit and some pink skin is showing.

Is this a big deal? How will I know if it is a big deal?

This happened a couple of days ago. When should he see a vet about it?

Thanks

I learned the hard way that if there is a question in your mind about bringing your dog to the vet...you should go.

If this gets infected on the weekend you will end up paying WAY more at the Vet ER than at your normal vet. Your dog could be in pain too. If this is more than a normal cut or scrape obtained hunting or playing I suggest going and getting checked out today.

Definitely get your pup to the vet as soon as possible. Their fees really aren't that bad for the peace of mind you get.

Your pup will likely be just fine but why chance a problem cropping up with one of your new best buddies.

If you want a definite answer and peace of mind you should probably go to the vet. My GWP has gotten caught on a fence a couple of times and tore the skin. I talked to my vet and his advise was to keep it clean with peroxide and if it looks like it is getting infected, then bring her in. It heeled up fine without a trip to the vet, but she does have a nice scar. Just my experience for you to consider.

Thanks.

I think I will have our groomer look at it. She lives down the street and get her opinion and go to the vet if she thinks we should.

Thanks

      Use a layer of painters (blue) masking tape on cork first, to help protect it, then apply whatever you want. Electrical tape is used by most, but I like using hockey tape.

      Mille Lacs would be a good choice. One of the resorts should be able hook you up.

      I used a self adhering tape to attach them,  but now the tape is getting sticky and a pain to use.  Any ideas what something else too use? Thanks

      Check out the South Central Forum, or MN Metro Forum and ask there as well as the SE MN- Rochester Forum. You may get more answers there as well.   If you could extend to three hours away Mille Lacs Lake could for sure accomodate what you are looking for.

      Hello...  I am coming down to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester from Homer, Alaska on February 11-20 and would like some advice. On the afternoon of Friday the 16th  through the evening of Sunday the 18th I have the time to go fishing. I would like to go after some pike and walleye. I would like to stay in a heated shack during my time on the ice. Also some rental gear, a radio and bait might be nice. Any advice on who rents shacks within a 2+ hour drive of Rochester with good size fish? I am looking more for decent size than numbers.  Thanks JFaber
