My daughter was attacked by a dog at work yesterday. She had 21 puncture wounds, some of them very deep. They are on both sides of both her arms. She had to have stitches and is all bandaged up.
She is bandaged up to her elbows. She is very swollen, and pretty sore right now. The worry now is infection. If infection sets in, she will have to be admitted to the hospital for IV antibiotics. She may also need to see a plastic surgeon.
And this morning we got a call from out vet. And She wants to amputate Holly's toe on Friday. Holly has had something wrong with one of her toes for a few weeks. Our vet tried two different antibiotics, neither worked. She has this open wound that just won't heal. We went for an X-ray on Friday, and that shows it is not cancer in the bone. But since its not healing, and there is still a risk of a soft tissue cancer, she thinks we should just remove the toe. After what we went through with Lad, I think I would just rather go ahead with the surgery instead of risking the chance of cancer that might spread. I just can't believe we are being hit with all of this at once!
