Update on me

Tuesday, April 09, 2013

Went to the doc this morning and got my tetanus shot and he gave me a script for an antibiotic and said to keep dressing it with antibiotic ointment till healed. I have a good bit of swelling and it's real touchy, but I can use it. Just have to remember to put on rubber gloves to wash dishes or play in the dirt (gardening)!
Haven't taken Bruno to the vet, but he really seems quite fine! We'll see. I watch him like a hawk!
Oh, the neighbor who was with me ( who owned the dog that was attacked a couple of yrs ago), called Animal Control and they came right out. The owner of the biting dog has to have her quarantined (either at his vet or at the county vacility ) for 10 days. Wouldn't you know it, his vet is also mine!! Animal control is in communication with the vet so they can be sure he actually takes her in for the 10 days! In fact, he'd already talked to him when he came back to let us know he talked to the guy yesterday. Do you know, that guy had the nerve to tell the A.C. officer that my Bruno bit him!! Poor Bruno was kind of catatonic and I never saw any teeth but from the dog doing all the biting! (Her name is Sadie and is really a pretty girl! Shame she has issues!)
So there's our update! Gotta get my antibiotics filled and get started on them!

    In Texas, dog owners are held responsible to damages if their dogs bite someone. The police will shoot a dangerous dog on sight. Can't believe the other owner said Bruno bit him and then, couldn't show anyone a bite mark! Hope you are all recovered by now! emoticon

    Yikes...I really hate to hear about this. I remember when I was a little girl and a big grey german shepherd came into our yard and attacked my little terrier who was outside alone defenseless on it's leash. That big monster shook her to death and when I found her just minutes later seeing the last of the ugly incident I couldn't sleep for weeks.

I was terribly traumatized over that I can imagine how you and Bruno feel.

Shame on that dog and it's owner...shame, shame, shame! emoticon

    Glad your both ok. Is this dog considered dangerous then? Since it isn't the first time it has attacked a dog. That's to bad. The man sounds irresponsible to me. Hugs for both of you!! emoticon

    You got more of an injury than you let on.....I'm glad you saw the doc....The fact that Sadie bit you(a human) is a big strike against her... in our area, the dog is put down after the second bite.....bad pet parents put their animals in danger with their irresponsibility. The dog in our neighborhood is not a danger to humans, just other animals, but one of his "sisters" was human aggressive and went after a police officer responding to a complaint. Animal control came to pick her up a few hours after the incident. When will these people ever learn! I'm really glad you & Bruno are doing ok.

    This is the first I heard of this incident. I'm glad to hear you and your pup are okay. Nothing worse than a dog bite.

    Ugh... glad you and Bruno are okay! Stupid irresponsible pet owners think they can get away with anything they want. I hope his dog is okay, but she probably needs to be with a better owner who can work with her to get her to behave! There's no excuse to allow a dog to be aggressive!

    It sounds like both you and Bruno will be alright and that is what is important. If it were me, I would submit a copy of all of your bills to the person who owns the dog and if he doesn't pay up then take him to small claims court and add an amount for pain and suffering.

    And are they making them pay for your doctor bills? You can take them to small claims court and get money for pain and suffering on top of medical bills---sometimes people like this need to learn that it cost them to not control their animals.

    I am so sorry this has happened to you. It's unfortunate that some pet parents do such a poor job. I'm glad you and Bruno are okay!
