She will likely not cower in front of every large dog if that is what you mean.I think if the vet is comfortable and certain then I feel certain she will make a full recovery. I did forget to ask if he was fixed would this help in anyway? Then I took her to the doctor. I’m worried about my puppy too. As a dog owner, you are liable if your dog attacks a person or another animal. Good luck tomorrow. It sounds like she could breath well enough, but maybe she has a damaged throat that continued to swell and cause major problems. We can’t get the antibiotics until tomorrow…will it be okay to wait to start the amoxicillin that long? Barking and multiple dogs will sometimes cause nice dogs to be aggressive. Morality is a mentality outside of animal instinct. One a very prey driven, almost deaf border collie that was given to me last year. Her throat was quite swollen as if she’d have a large double chin. They sent Trouble home with a morphine patch for pain and antibiotics and said he would be in alot of pain but he would be ok, that night he let out a whistle with every breath and his heartbeat was rapid and very strong, could feel his heartbeat just pounding. The doxie and the PB mix became instant best friends, when the oldest passed away they would comfort each other, the doxie acting as a mom to the puppy- at the time they were the same size. If this is the case, then I would bring her in immediately. Our neighbors are great and watch her while we are at work/school. My min pin was attacked by a large dog off its leash. Its possible there is interaction between here nose and the wound and the bubbles are her breathing. Physically she looks and feels fine. My 6lb Pom was in our back yard playing and the neighbors put their Mastiffs in their back yard. He said he thought she was older than 10 based on her teeth having been pulled. I will take her to a vet but it’s late here now and was hoping for some advice as I couldn’t find my vets late night number. It seems like she needs to see a vet asap and have a work up. Matt, your comment sounds creepy and pedophile as Hell. The problem is that she appears to be in a state of trauma/shock. Mine barked and backed away. It was all prompted by your dog, regardless of the odd situation and the other dog would not have died. But no whining or crying. See a vet if there is continued swelling or he cant eat or drink or has a hard time breathing. I can move all of his limbs and have rubbed every inch of his body with no negative reaction from him…but I’m concerned about his not walking. Sorry. Now my Poms temperament is different he is still shaking ears are down and tails down. How time! She does wag her tail, move her legs if you hit the tickle spot. Sounds like that new vet is very good and are on the right path. It's not a negativity type thing. I wonder if the bigger dog would have attacked the female maltese if he caught her munching on his chow. If you only see leg punctures it could have been a venomous snake? I could have accepted his death if he died of an old age. I tried to grab him and he drag her in his mouth as I was pulling him approx 10 feet before I tackled him down and pulled at the base of his tail for him to release her. Antibiotics, pain medication and fluids are the staples of dog attack treatment. Is there any chance it could be brain damage? Without going into more detail, the simple answer is go to a vet right away….It might be a case of low blood sugar for the seizure but you never know. Just to update the Dr. held him for observation almost all day and did several X-rays of chest and stomach area. Sounds like she must have some serious pain that kicks in like neck pain or back pain that makes her have an episode. I’m not a Vet, but my thoughts are that his body is sending everything to keep his body going while he has open wounds from Tuesday evening to today/Friday. Hi, maybe someone can give me an indication as to why my dog could have died. Great question. I removed his collar and rushed him to the emergency vet. Only the lab has gotten aggressive but the collie just starting fighting with him because he finally was provoked by the lab. I guess I am asking for advice. Hi, Maybe he needs a week of anti inflammatory pain medication to get over any neck pain…..sorry I am not sure what is going on. Occasionally there is a spat with the other dogs but no blood drawn. It’s idiots like you that seize to amaze me! We keep them seperate now. That is mine. Good luck. Marlee didn’t have parvo but did have everything else. Also he had x rays the day of the attack and heart and lungs were goond. Hard to tell, but 3-6 months and you will be totally safe. She has never done damage yet attacks just at the sight of him. It might be just a case of protocol. Marlee would be freaking out about the weather and want to chill, Princess could sense this wanted to heard Marlee or “mother” her. We took Rosie to the Vet, she was punctured and she is very sore, my neighbors paid the vet bill. The big dogs didn’t come near him as they were locked in an area at the end of the garden. No diarrhea so far just normal after the yogurt so that’s good. I’m guessing it will be fine, but I can never tell without the records and pictures. is there some kind of training method to stop my dog from attacking little dogs. I took him to the vet and he got stitches and antibiotics. Fed separately, taking potty separate, and interacted with one another under very close supervision. My puppy had 4 wounds and unfortunately spinal and internal damage and had no chance of survival. The owner says she seems fine and can find no signs of injury. We learned that the proper way was to grab the dogs by there back legs and pull. I will be the first to admit I am not an expert in animal behavior but it seems like her protective maternal instincts are kicking in and this will be a long time change. Keep in close contact with the new vet office and let them guide you. I would certainly baby her for a while and give her no more than a day or so before being very concerned. I’m not an animal behavior expect but if this never happened before and the bone was the only variable then I would start by feeding them separately and never give them treats together. I would NOT suspect any permanent injures to remain if the vet is surgically fixing the problems now and the dog is under the vet care for 48 hours. I cleaned them up with perioxide & she seemed okay..Now – December 18th, I noticed her left eye looked a little weird – A bit cloudy. I know that I would always be on edge and on guard from now on. ?thx a lot.. Wow, that is a crazy story. Please insist that the vet takes a blood test sooner rather than later if you can’t understand your dogs slow recovery/inability to fight infection. It was the most horrifying site I have ever witnessed! But this was one of many instances when little dogs charged us and their owner laugh it off…, My husband took our 11.5 lb shitzu out for a walk recently one morning and a neighbor’s dog came running straight for her ( the owner was out and yelled “don’t worry he won’t bite. It sounds like you are in the UK (obviously) and I know there is a good vet school at Cambridge and Edinburgh and presumably neurologist at each or close by. The lady at the vet said he could die from infection if not blood loss. The neighbors escaped Black German Shepard ambushed us, latched his jaws around my little dog’s neck and shook him violently. My newly rescued, large mixed breed dog went after a cockapoo this morning. I mean I guess if I’m on here and this worried it’s better safe then sorry. Most likely not a one off. . I have had dogs all my life, I’m 66, and haven’t had many issues, with dogs, fortunately. I picked up my dog from the floor immediately and raised him as high as possible. Our vet is closed and the ER Vet Hospital is more than we can afford. Also, this isn’t her first go around with another dog, although the last time the dogs were in our yard and we’re the aggressors. If the other dog owner shrugs off the poor behavior of his little dog (or, worse, thinks it's cute), I'd suggest that you and your big dog just walk away. Rebekah Gibbs on April 12, 2019: I was walking my GSD and a cat spotted my dog and came running after my dog. Again RAPE IS NOT ABOUT SEX IT IS ABUSIVE SADISTIC POWER. In the same way that women who get raped usually instigate it through short skirts! The man of the house ran in and got a towel and covered sweet Natalie and comforted her until I could get there. The attack wasn’t described to me so I don’t know what happened exactly. I dont see any puncture wounds but when u pick her up she hollars. Have xrays performed and have your little dog evaluated for spinal trauma or other internal damage. I would be a little worried and want a vet to look at her ASAP. Was I too close to the Great Dane? Sorry to hear this, but there is no way to know. The vet said she will need therapy to fix this but didn’t really say why it’s happening or what actually is causing her to walk this way. That’s more for like if your dog kills a good source, like chickens, rabbits, pigs…. If you took the time to read his/her comment properly you would have noticed that he/she owned a SMALL dog. I made sure he was separated from other two dogs until 3 days later. Would chase cars if he had a chance and I swear, though I thought it was funny, how he would just go nuts on those car rides, sticking his head out the window and barking at every car that sped toward and past us. Very true. Should I take her to the vet? Very sorry not to help more but it sounds like the recovery should have already started by now and might not be coming….. good luck. I’m not sure I follow. I don’t even want my lab pit anymore. He is a smashing little dog, good natured, playful and socialised, he’s regained his spark, business, and character, so really want to do all I can before having to make a desperate decision about his future. He walked by while the husky was eating and the husky went after him. Could the result of the fever still be amputation? The attack was completely unprovoked. Find out if the other dog is vaccinated and behaving well. Thank you. I am so mad at myself for leaving that food behind, and I really thought the dogs got along together so I ignored warnings that border collies should not be trusted around smaller dogs- now I know why with this predatory drift that can happen and how some dogs/breeds have it worse. I’m so scared. I don’t want my sons dog at my house. I would be very concerned that the urine is causing him great pain and reducing his ability to heal. They did not give him any pain medication? Thank you for your comments and help to those of us that are hurting. For safety reasons, we are allowing only your pet to come inside.
