:( Ok, so we have just been down to the beach so the dogs could have a run as they didnt go yesterday and i felt bad.

They had a brilliant time, but........(click to play its a vid)

Heidi has taken a chunk out of him, poor little thing i was nearly sick when i saw it :)>>>

I have rung the emergency vet for advice and she said he should be ok until tomorrow, awwwwww my baba :0

they were just play fighting as they always do, I'm surprised its taken a year and a bit for a chunk to come out, hey ho, kids will be kids :(

She didnt do it viciously, they just run at each other and act mental x

Oh dear that looks nasty :(
Have you tried cleaning the wound? I have always used salt water to clean any of my pets and mine and my kids wounds to help avoid infection and it really works! And with dogs mouths being full of bacteria it might be a good idea. Just boil some water in the kettle, put it in a medium sized mug and add about 2 table spoons of salt and stir with a sppon that you have rinsed in boiling water until all the salt is melted. Cool the water until its luke warm (best way is to stand the mug in a saucepan of cold water) and then using cotton wool soak it in the water and wipe the wound once or twice DO NOT put it back in the water, use a clean piece. It wont harm the animal in any way but it may sting so best have somone holding to your pet. Hope it helps :)

Poor little boy. That looks very sore.
Even fuzzy children play rough, it seems! I do hope he's alright, though :(

the vet recommended using salt water but she said it should be ok until we get there this morning, to be honest its a bit deep and i didnt want to touch it, he hasnt licked it and it has been able to breath all night so hopefully my boy will be ok x

Aww, bless him :( Poor boy. Our whippet cross got a nasty bite once down his side. It looked pretty messy when they stitched it and he has a line down his side where the scar formed now :( It healed well though.
I hope your boy is ok. Maybe they'll learn not to play so rough :))
Oh, and good luck finding your flap of skin ;) :))

Not a very good one. He's getting old now bless him. Not the young, bouncy dog he used to be.

Awwww hes lovely, looks totally diff to my Heidi tho.

I love anything whippety!

My baby boy is totally totally zonked zzz the vet said it took ages to get him to come round after the g/a and since i brought him home he has been asleep, ive never seen anything like it...hope hes ok.

The gaping hole is now a complete sewn together line, god only knows how tight it feels it was such a big hole!

I cried my eyes out when i got him home, just because i felt overwhelmed that he was still here, and that i could have lost him just for doing a regular thing like taking him for a run.....what is life all about eh? ?/ :(
