My Dog Was Attacked!

I had to take my dog, Amber, to the vet this week, because she was attacked by another dog and hurt! Luckily, she wasn't hurt very bad, but she needed stitches, pain killers, and antiseptic cream. Unfortunately, she keeps licking off the antiseptic, so I don't know how much it's helping!

I hope she feels better soon. The other dog came into my yard to attack her, so now I'm scared to let her outside. I think the painkillers are making her sleepy, because she seems a lot more tired than usual. She has all of these missing tufts of hair, and she keeps licking her cuts and whining. At least she's current on her rabies vaccines!

I'm so sorry! We had the exact same thing happen to our two pets a couple of weeks ago. I am absolutely paranoid now any time they are outside in our fenced in yard.

Poor puppy!! I hope you gave the owner of the other dog a piece of your mind!

My (female) cat has been the victim of several attacks by large toms and she's needed stitches too. We had good luck lightly wrapping the area with gauze to keep her from licking them too much.

I am so sorry to hear that. I am glad to hear she is okay. Very scary to see your pet hurt.

I'd be afraid to let your girls play outside with such a dog in the neighborhood.

Did you know who's dog it was that attacked yours? They need to do something about it, vets can get expensive.
