    Not because we got our birds, because getting ready at a spot someone opened a truck door right as one of the dogs was running by and the corner of the door resulted in this

    The drain makes it look a lot worse than it is but it definitely needed stitches

    I first saw the picture before reading what you typed and thought someone shot your dog. I hope he will recover quickly.

    Yikes! Major bummer! Hopefully the hound is back at it in no time. Definitely dont want to be in the field with an open wound. Dang. At least its early so there is lots of time yet.

    I had a short opener also a few years back. My 6 year old intact male got out of the truck excited as usual. When he’s excited, he’s excited, if you know what I mean. He ducked under a strand of barbed wire, and his excited part hooked the lower strand, ripping a 1.5 inch long v shaped rip in his doghood. Blood flowing everywhere. Quick trip to vet, only to be told this is the absolute fastest healing area of a dog and nothing further was needed other than some pain relief . He hunted the next day. Hope your pooch heals quickly Reef!

    Boy oh boy…

    Sorry to hear! Hopefully you didn’t drive too far to have a trip cut short by something like that?

    Either way, the health and safety of our dogs and ourselves come first.

    All of my vehicles have standard first-aid kits (bandages, gauze, etc). What extra would you guys add for dogs?

    3 hours but at least country vets are super cheap compared to my local vet. This was only $50 more than confirming an ear infection we already knew he had!

    This really didn’t bleed, was just a hole in his side, so I didn’t use anything on way to vet 20 mins away. My dog/hunting bag though has eye wash, ear wash, skunk soap, hydrogen peroxide, cheap dog boots, benadryl, and a couple rolls of vet wrap I think. Doesn’t take too much space but can deal with most dog problems I hope.

    I’d throw in some vet wrap but it can cause more damage than good if you don’t know how tight to wrap it. Cannot wrap to tight or too long.
