Dog wound stitched

Blu visited the surgery on Saturday after he ran into a fish tank, as fish tanks have sharp corners this made a deep wound on Blu.

Wounds vary according to:

Cause - puncture wounds, abrasions, or lacerations

Location - paws, abdomen, eyes, etc.

Level of contamination - clean (surgical) wounds, contaminated (infected)

we consider all these factors when deciding the best way to treat a specific wound. Sometimes the location or the amount of skin loss prevents surgical closure or bandaging (wounds on the face or high up on the leg).

Due to the depth of Blu's wounds we had to investigate by shaving and opening the surrounding area to make sure the wound did not go down to fat, muscle, bone, or other deeper structures. Blu escaped with only a deep wound that had not penetrated any vital areas.
