What a rough week for little Louis Wellington :( Last Friday, at doggie daycare, someone took a bite out of his tail! (by someone I mean another pup, of course) They told me that there hadn't been an altercation that they could see. Everyone played well, and none of the pups were being "snippy". However, when they took Louis' play group out to potty time they noticed blood on his tail.
Now that Louis has licked on his boo boo for a few days it's about the size of a quarter. It's red and irritated. I'm taking him to the vet to see what they can give me that might help it to heal more quickly. The "cone" is out. When he has that on he just stands in the middle of the kitchen shaking. For hours. I'd rather have them amputate his tail than put him through that again :( I'm hoping there is a bandage of sorts that they can put on his boo boo that he won't remove. Wish us luck!
I just want my little man feeling like this again:
(picture taken on the way to doggie daycare last week PRIOR to "the attack" as I am now calling it. like this...."OMG...Louis was ATTACKED at daycare last week!" you understand)
Keep LW's tail in your thoughts please.
T & Louis
**UPDATE - While googling for an image of "westie with a bite or sore on tail" I came to the realization that Louis' injury is not that terrible. What I saw after googling, however, was :( So, don't worry about keeping LW's tail in your thoughts. Use those thoughts for the poor pups whose tails I just saw. Ouch!
