I believe our female Yellow Lab was just shot with a gun

Customer Question

I believe our female Yellow Lab was just shot with a gun right around the mid-section and closer to her nipples. She has two wound marks, unless it was one wound that came out on the other side. We have no vet clinic nearby. What should we do?

Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help you today.

I'm so sorry to hear that Tracy might have been shot...or at least to hear that she's been injured in some way.

I do have a few additional questions to ask about her first if you don't mind:

1. Do her wounds appear to be bleeding?

2. Can you tell if they're very deep?

3. Is she having any trouble breathing?

4. Can you tell me the color of her gums?

5. Is she currently taking any medication?

There may be a slight delay after I receive your answers since I have to type up a response to you. Thanks for your patience. Deb
