Dam tough
« on: May 12, 2015, 07:06:22 PM »
I always knew dogs were tough but really didn't know just how tough they really were! Till yesterday Sat I got a call one of our junk yard dogs Max a Saint Bernard gentle big baby all around, had come in hurt and thought he had been hit by a car.
He was bleeding very heavy from his bunghole and had a few signs of outside damage on his hip.
We left him inside and feed him over the weekend waiting till Mon to take him to the vet.
Mon the vet called and told us to bring him in! After some shaving he discovers he had been shot by a turkey hunter.visitors can't see pics , please register or login

He will be OK as it didn't hit any vitals but has a long way to go.

Holee Crap :sad:
How in "Sam Hill" do they go about getting all the shot out of him? That would be worse then the initial shot as far as I'm concerned.

There are hunters and then there are people like the one that shot your dog.  I hope your dog fully recovers.

They said they couldn't remove the shot and it wouldn't be a problem for him .
As far as the story goes were getting bits and pieces of rummers, I'm sure it will come out and some forum of justice will be had.  Poor fellow sure couldn't of done anything that bad to deserve this. Thank for your support and thoughts.

Sorry to see this.  I hope you find out who shot him.  That's a nasty looking x-ray - he's one tough dog for sure!!!  I'm sure his thick coat helped absorb the impact.

Anyone have any experience with penicillin shot? I got some and know the dose but I'm not sure were to inject it into him. Should it go in his neck like most shots or should I put it in the wound area? I've been giving him his pills but its starting to get dirty and swell up. He's laying on it and I can't get him stop! The cold floor must feel good.

I'm not sure about the dose, but you wont accomplish anything by trying to inject the wound area. You need to safely and efficiently get it under the skin. Pinch the neck skin and inject the needle below your fingers holding the pinched skin. The reason vets use the neck is because thats usually where the skin is the loosest.

Penicillin works by running through the blood stream, thats why your injecting it into him. To apply it to the wound area would be a topical application which Penicillin is not.

Yea Jim it was very close! The swelling is making the hole run together and split open. I think I have found were it happens and who it was, going to have a talk with a fellow as soon as I can catch him out. I sure hope it goes well!

A lot of people seem to think it's okay to pepper an animal in the ass with a shotgun if it's doing anything that bothers them. I just had an older guy that I know who had a bear with 3 cubs in his backyard destroy his birdfeeder and he said he was going to shoot it in the ass with 12 gauge birdshot.

Dumb, dumb, dumb!

I would say by the location of where your dog was shot that somebody did it to "teach him a lesson" and I use that term loosely. If he was attacking somebody he most likely would've been shot in the front chest or head part of his body not the rear side.

In fact looking at that last picture it almost looks like they shot him as he was going away from them.
Pretty despicable whoever did it.
