We let my 13yr old dog Tails out front to do his business and the neighbors dog was running loose and came right up behind him and bit him on the lower back. Right on my front porch
Took him to the Vet Emergency Room, they said that dog bites are horrible. They stitched him up but put in two drains. Took him back yesterday to have the drains removed and they had to put two more drains in instead!
We take him back on Friday for a follow up.
The neighbors brother let out the dog. Normally she is not allowed out without her owner. His brother just lets her run the neighborhood when he's away. I hate that it was my dog that was bitten but I'm so glad it wasn't a child. Randy our neighbor said he will not allow her out front anymore.
Please keep Tails in your prayers. He is so old and has NEVER had any health issues and I just don't want this to become a problem for him!
