WHen we were staying at Grammy's Victor was out playing with the other dogs. That was when I saw a very similar wound on his side. As far as I can tell, I think he ran into a piece of metal, possibly a small pipe that gouged out a hunk of skin and a small bit of muscle. There was nothing to do but pack it with ointment because you can't stitch closed what is not there and there was obviously a round patch of skin missing and because the small bit of meat was gone, it had to heal from the bottom up. I kept it greased and covered and it healed without issue. To see it now you would think it was another lemon freckle on his side, if you looked really close you would see that there is no hair there. But it is so small to be unnoticeable which is amazing considering how bad it looked originally.
Mary did something similar when she jumped a fence and tore her breast again, on a piece of metal. I am sorrym vibes that it heals quickly, will be sore for awhile I imagine, not an easy heal in the bend like that.
