    Default Jingle for my Rambo please!!

    I apologize in advance for the slightly incoherent post that is about to follow. I'm awake and can't go back to sleep after waking up at 4am to give my sweet boy his pain meds.

    My Rambo is a large mixed breed dog who was unfortunately attacked by another dog last Saturday. When we got him to the vet he'd lost so much blood that his blood pressure was only 68mmHg and his heart was beating abnormally. They were able to give him shock fluids and return his body to a normal blood volume.

    They then took him to surgery to address his wounds. He has been steadily getting better everyday but we still have a long road ahead of us. Also to add salt to a wound radiographs on Thursday revealed a tooth in his leg between his radius and ulna. Unfortunately teeth are a hug pathogenic risk and it'll be best to remove it. We took him to surgery today but were unsuccessful in finding said tooth.

    Thankfully I'm a vet tech and I manage an animal hospital so it's made the experience less painful both financially and mentally if that's possible. I just feel so bad for him, he's the sweetest boy ever and wouldn't hurt a fly as was evidenced by the lack of wounds on the other dog. So if you've got a second could you just jingle for my Rambo? Thanks, guess I just wanted to write it all down.
    All I pay my psychiatrist is the cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day.

    Oh, that poor baby! Jingles from way out West heading to VA. Get well, Rambo. My 6 doggies are jingling their leashes for you, too! Hugs to mom, as well. Dog fights are so scary and upsetting.

    Thank you all for your kind words. We're headed back to the doc to take the bandage off and see how the leg looks today. Then he can go back to sporting t-shirts hopefully and not have to be bandaged all the time. Although the site of a big dog in little boy dinosaur pajamas warms the heart.

    Need pics. Seriously. Big dog in little boy dinosaur PJs is not something you just dangle out there without a picture.

    Thank you all, he is my handsome boy, of course slightly more so when he's not all shaved and covered in scabs. To Buddy Roo we're not really sure what happened, the other dog belonged to my SO's tenant. The dogs had lived together/interacted for months. His tenant let the two dogs in and she just went after him. Needless to say, he's enjoyed the farm life thus far and sine this we've made that his permanent address. I like the idea of framing his radiograph, others have suggested putting the tooth on his collar as a badge of honor.
