Lola in hot oil!
Lola, the 11½ year old yellow Labrador, is a very special dog. Not only is she a truly delightful canine in her own right, she also has the esteemed honour of being a guide dog. Obviously her owner is dedicated to Lola, and vice versa. So it was quite a shock when Lola accidentally stood in hot cooking oil that had spilt on the floor!
Burn management involves protection of the site from external contamination (bandaging), control of infection (antibiotics) and monitoring of fluid loss (not too bad in Lola's case).
Lola's beautiful demeanour has meant she has tolerated the foot bathing and dressing changes every two days without the need for any sedation or restraint. Well done Lola! You will soon be back at work caring for your owner.
