Today is the day we give thanks for all we have, even that silly herd dog of ours who got his shoulder all torn up and required surgery to clean it out. Thank you, Dr. Beane, for the work you did and for keeping the price reasonable!
Of course, the real fun is to take this outside dog and keep all one hundred pounds of him in the house in order to keep the wound clean while it heals. He is not housebroken and dislikes being indoors. Because we typically only see the dogs at feeding time, we were not aware of his injury until many hours after it occurred. Dr. Beane could not close the wound up and put in a drain to prevent the buildup of fluids. We have to keep it clean and administer antibiotics.
