There is always so much going on here, but we have one story in particular we want to share, but of course we are not going to say it right away or that will spoil it!

Lots of changes are going on here with the staff, good changes and not so good changes. Etc.. There is one new lady, she is a cat fanatic, well lets just say she is our favorite, Mol. She lets us sleep on the chairs, where the other staff just take us off. When the dryer is done she lets us get comfy in the warm blankets, and gives us treats, can't forget about those!

Sometimes it is super busy here at the clinic and sometimes it is slow as molasses! This past Tuesday overnight there was absolutely no one in, so the food provider decided to sit and read for a little bit. Tony went and cuddled with her! Lets just say he'd not the best cuddler. Usually when he has enough he'll let you know by giving you a little bite. But he stayed with the food provider and stayed getting lovin like a pro! He then proceeded to sleep in her lap for about half an hour. Hehe, it was quite cute.

Anyways now to our interesting case! Might seem a little scary to you but remember this was a dog, not a cat, mol. Owner called in saying their dog had bit the bars of his cage and he was now STUCK!!! They said they'd try get him out but otherwise would come in. 15 minutes later they arrived metal bared crate and all. That poor dog was stuck in there all right. The doctor went strait to sedating him so that he'd loosen his jaw enough to get him out. Did they get him out at this point? Of course not! They proceeded to cut the cage wires all around his head and then very carefully had to cut the piece of metal stuck in his mouth. Finally they got him out! He had a puncture wound on his chin and also a slightly bleeding wound in his mouth. They sent the dog home safe and sound along with the cage, broken and no longer with lock. The End!

Its the first for our clinic I believe, or at least the first for this doctor that was on duty.

As of right now, we need to take our middle of the night nap, we'll try come back for more stories soon!

WOW dudes! Life sure sounds interesting in your clinic.
What kind of dog was it? Anybody had an idea why he would bite his cage? Sounds neurotic, was it a poodle? MOL!
Silly dog! Glad he didn't lose his teeth!


Love,
Milo

Milo: It was a dachshund. We assume that either he had separation anxiety, or he just hates being in a cage. He seemed normal otherwise. We've seen patients gnaw at the cages every once in a while, but usually they are coming out of sedation or out of it.

Harley: So True!! Mol!

Callie: Us too! Its too bad we had to destroy the owners cage in the process though, mol. Guess it makes them have to get a better one rather then to keep using this one.

Tabbies: Good to be back! And good to see you guys again ;). Some dogs are just weird like that, eh? The owners are definitely trying to come up with something else, but apparently the dog tries to rip apart the walls and stuff when their gone too, so it seems like a loose loose situation in their case, mol.

We've been trying to visualize how the dog had gotten stuck so that you needed to cut the cage away - a scary picture! I hope his pawrents think of something else to help curb his anxiety.

I hope they find something to help their dog too. The crate sort of looked like this one, one with two doors. I think he was partially stuck on the lock of the cage (the lock is not the same as this one).

Jezebel & Simone: We are glad he is okay too! Even if it is a dog its hard to any animal struggle and get hurt, or just sick animals in general.

Poor dog! Amazing the bad spots those dumb dogs get themselves in.

Glad you have a cat fanatic along with the food provider to spoil you.
