A small dog wandered onto our property and my large dog attacked it. The poor thing ran under my house afterward and we thought for sure it was dead, but it's not. His throat is swollen, the collar caked in blood and tight on him. I can't get to him to cut it off. My question is, do you think the swelling will go down from the bite and the dog be able to eat/drink again? I cannot get to the thing to take it to a vet. :( I've tried and tried.
JA: I'll do all I can to help. Is the dog bleeding
Customer: It was, initially. The attack was two days ago. There is still a bit of fresh blood by the fur around the collar. It's not bleeding profusely. I am afraid that if the collar is cut, it will bleed out. I have no medical reasoning for having that theory, just an assumption.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?
Customer: Nothing, other than the first day after the attack he barely moved and today he is up walking
around under the house, wagging his tail...the only thing wrong with him is his bloody, swollen throat.
