Hit by a car...

Hit by a car. Bleeding profusely from rectum and begins at first but has stopped now. Leg and maybe hip broken. Head gashed open but she's still breathing 3 hours later. But can't get up. We have no emergent vet available.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name?

Hi there

Dr. Paul Brazzell here

Wow that is a lot of damage :(

Well the things you can do are as follows:

Keep warm- put blankets in dryer and cover

Keep head slightly elevated and put towels under bum in case has to urinate

Give Tylenol at 15.0 mg/kg now and in the AM for pain

Give Karo syrup by mouth- one to two teaspoons

Gently wipe any cuts or scrapes with warm water and put very clean cloth over them

Can you get her to a vet tomorrow?

We can, but I hate for her to suffer like this. My dad is willing to put her down at the farm for us. I feel like that's the most humane thing at this point. As a nurse, the bleeding from the rectum and vagina tells me we have a major issue going on inside that may have clotted for a moment but isn't going to turn out well.
