Izzy returns home with wounds
Izzy is a 4 year old Shar Pei who recently visited us with some nasty wounds. During a storm, Izzy accidentally escaped from her property and we suspected she was struck by a motor vehicle while away. Fortunately, she returned home and her owners promptly presented her to us when they noticed her injuries.
Izzy's left hindleg was badly bruised and numerous deep wounds were apparent. Luckily no fractures were evident. The wounds were thoroughly irrigated with a sterile saline solution to remove any debris and contaminants that can enter a wound inflicted due to road trauma.
After Izzy was stabilised and deemed fit for general anaesthesia, her wounds were surgically repaired the same evening.
We are pleased to report Izzy has recovered from her ordeal very well. She has been an excellent patient to work with!
