Hazards around the home

Animals injure themselves in the most unlikely ways. This little guy came in last night, whimpering and bleeding. Thankfully with heavy sedation and a little maneuvering, as well as a few sutures, we fixed him up really nicely.





In other news, my weird anaphylaxis patient is doing ok. At our urging, her owners took her to the specialty clinic for continued care. She has not improved fully, but she is much better than she was. She's been able to maintain her blood glucose and blood pressure, and sepsis has not occurred. She is still "not right" mentally, but she's alive. I'm grateful for that.

It looks like the drain in a shower, maybe?

Yes, it's a shower drain. The dog was in the bathtub, and his toes slipped through!

Poor dog! Good thing my not-so-smart beagle is frightened to death of the shower. It'd be exactly something he would do...special dog.

Least the drain came out without too much trouble? I think the biggest thing would be removing the shower drain from the shower. xD
