Not So Fun Trip To The E-vet With Robin Last Night

Robin had a freak accident last night.

He was going up our stairs, and he is so long and tall that he kind of swung his back as he was going up the stairs. Somehow he caught his back on one of the metal underneath support brackets that hold our wooden handrail in place on the stairs...and he cuts his back open! He had a nasty triangular flap cut open on the top of his back, toward his tail. Poor thing had to go to the e-vet, get knocked out, and have stitches put in. Internal dissolving stitches and some external stitches that need to be removed in 10 days.

Good grief! Poor guy. I hope he heals up quickly.

 

I should probably look at ours and make sure there's nothing sharp. I never even thought about something like that happening.

Poor baby! I hope he feels better soon! Spencer had a flap of skin off like that but it was from Buzz. It heals fairly quickly even though it looks so bad!

Yikes! That had to hurt, Poor Robin. I am glad I don't have stairs,... well, I do, leading to the loft, but they are baby-gated off. Energy had to climb a huge set going up to, and down from our upstairs beach apt. when we had him. I always worried about him falling on the way down, ... Bob used to walk in front of him.

 

Hope Robin is feeling better this morning!

Yikes!! Hope he heals quickly :hope

 

(no pics??? :P )

Thanks everyone! I will post pics of the stitched up wound tonight if anyone wants to see it.

 

What a day yesterday!

Toby went for his dental. It was uneventful. I picked him up after work and all was well.

Then Robin decided to slice his back open a little after 10:00 last night.

Between the 2 hounds, I spent $750 on vet bills yesterday. Ugh.
