THEN she tells me that she already put iodine on it. Yeah, perfect. Now the vet probably can't stitch it because the only thing you put on a wound that requires stitches is WATER. Because other products kills cells and dead tissue can't be sewn together and there often isn't enough tissue to use if it has to be cut back.

I went over, saw how deep it was, put a bandage on it and called the clinic.

Vet decided since he was in the area to stop by. Nope he can't stitch it now, (knew it). So now she is on meds, cold hosing 2x day and bandaged until it heals.

How in hell can people own horses or other animals and NOT know the do's and don't of simple wound care??????
Sounds like some of the grooms on the race track :/ some of them are true real professionals who love animals & care for them. But there are also some who would have put iodine on a cut like this.

But, if you haven't tried it, that vetricyn (spelling???) the spray Clinton Anderson is always plugging. It really is great stuff, we had a goat who dogs got ahold of a few months ago & it healed her Ruth up!

As others have said I so wish there was something I could do or say to ease your pain but I know that's not possible. I am sending lots of (((hugs))) and heartfelt condolences on the loss of 2 wonderful companions.
She lost Arnold and BackUp. Sloan is fine.

Now my two females are starting to not get along anymore , I think they were resource guarding the igloo dog house that we put on the back porch for the winter so we took that away & the chairs & anything else that could be guarded I know it's Josefina starting it every time ... It's times like this I miss Izze .

Josefina was a "foster gone fail" originally but with this new development (it's only the other girl she has issues with, not the males. So I'm starting to think she might be best in a home without other females). ESP after what happened with Backup & Arnold it scares me that that would happen to Adrianne, someone with such a seemingly full proof safety system can have a failure, how much hope do I have when I know I could never do it as good

I have some things to think about now about what is best for the dogs it just sucks.

DD I know if my females ever start fighting I'll be rehoming. I just can't do crate and rotate well in this house. It sucks to consider, but it would be the safest option.

We "crate" and rotate here, sans the crates, and it's a drag. We do have an ultimate set up as far as it goes as our house is four floors and the entire bottom floor was an apartment attached to the house. If we had a smaller house without the easy divisions I don't think I'd be able to deal with it.

I didn't realize I put the wrong name even though I knew it - my mind was in such a whirlwind not wanting to have read what I had. What I said about Sloan is what I feel about BackUp. Thanks for giving me a headsup on my goof and a chance to correct it. I wish posts gave us the opportunity to edit after we have posted it.

I made rice that wasn't fully cooked. Gross. Had a bunch of motivation yesterday to get stuff done, and wasn't home. Now I've got all the time and the world and want to do nothing.

I bought a custom saddle cover. Feeling bad because we are supposed to be putting any extra money towards debt crushing. :/

I am going to see if removing all sources of RG (the dog house, chsirs beds rugs toys etc) & we'll see how that goes.

I know I sound like a bad person but there is just no way for me to do a "crate & rotate" here. Even when they come inside when someone leaves / at night, they will HAVE to be in some kind of contact even though they all have their own beds / space.

At least they only put iodine on it. My old Morgan got a puncture wound out in pasture at the barn where we boarded. Called the vet out but Rocket wound up with an infection in the wound. It took awhile to clear that up. Found out later from one of the kids at the barn that another boarder (self-proclaimed expert) STUCK HER FINGER IN THE HOLE TO SEE HOW DEEP IT WAS when my horse was first brought in. Idiot.
