I'm so sorry. If that happened to my little guy (dog) I would be distraught as well. Veterinarians are amazing though, they will have milo all fixed up in no time!

Just called the vet. They think the punctures didn't go deep enough to damage his lungs . I still feel like it my fault even tho the other dog ran up behind us. It was a huge mastiff against my little chichuaua . Im beside myself with worry . This is the worst day ever.

the same happened to my little max, he was really chewed up, took three men to get him out of the jaws of a big dog. Then he had a huge hole in his shoulder about three inches across/ Took a long time to heal him up, and about a thousand bucks in vet bills. At least I still have him to love, that's the bottom line.

Wow your is definitly worse than mine. I just visited him at the vets . They said he was howling so that rules out any lung issues . They did try to walk him and he was very scared . Hopefully he will be back to his normal self soon.

It may take a while but he should bounce back. He may have issues with other dogs now though. Judy have to watch that. He may be scared to death of big dogs or want revenge on every big dog. Hopefully not, but just keep an eye on him for that

When I got him from the SPCA he was allready scared of all dogs. So it's going to be worse now. He is home from the vet but he won't lay down just sitting in the corner in pain. I don't know what to do for him besides just letting him do what he wants.

They had us put raw honey in the big wound on Max's shoulder and it drew out the infection in a couple of days, but it took months to heal up the huge hole. To this day is is afraid of big dogs. I pick him up and carry him past large dogs now. I hope your little guy get well quickly so you can have nim home.

Raw honey? That's pretty weird but hey whatever works . He is home after an hour of walking around and standing by the steps I finally picked him up and put him in my bedroom. He yelped a lot but he did jump on and off the bed and is laying in a pile of my clothes . Animal control left a note on the door of the other dog. Turns out that dogs been a terror in the neighborhood and that's the second note left today. Not to mention the neighbors 9 year old was bit by him today as well after she got off the school bus .

raw honey litterally sucks out infection. Max's hole was like three inches across and half an inch deep. The vet said to put raw honey in the hole every day, so we did. worked great.
Sounds like a certain dog needs to be put down if he's that mean, or they need to keep him in a cage he cannot get out of. I'm for putting him down tho.

I agree if the dog is out of control, it's got to go. I will have to remember the honey trick. I guess it makes sense. Works like black salve.
