Almost 2 weeks ago, Thurles, Ethan & Smiley ran out the back door side by side. I'm standing out in the yard a moment later & I see something on Thurles' side. So I called him over to wipe it off, thinking it's slobber.
Uh no...its a nice triangle shaped cut. Luckily skin only.
It took only 17 stitches....Dr B did cosmetic surgery on him. It'll leave a scar if he's sheared but otherwise when the hair grows back, he will hopefully not show.
So here's some pictures.
Too freaked out to take a picture of the cut itself, but here's the day after when he came home from surgery. It looks really bad.

I actually think wearing the tee shirts helped keep it clean & kept him from bothering it. He did not lose one single stitch & didn't tear open the wound, which we were afraid he would. Dr B had to clip the skin & then pull it tight. So no running & he was crated (3 & 1/2 pieces of carpet in his crate) while I was not at home.
This was taken Wednesday night, see how dry & clean the wound sight is. Such a good boy:

At the vet

And happy to be going home

He just kept running around the yard like nothing happened. As the night went on, he moved slowly. He started feeling better around Monday of the next week. I kept tee shirts on him but checked on it alot. Cephalexin twice a day.
Today I let him run loose & he ran & ran. :blkgrey:

Its funny, Dr B asked me about him & why wasn't he kept for stud. I said he started 234 times, no scratches, no injuries. The reason he wasn't kept for stud is he was criptorchid. He raced past his 5th birthday.
Dr B said isn't that something, that impressive of a record and then cuts him self running out the back door. Thurles didn't think it was funny, but I thought to myself I'd much rather he got hurt that way than break a leg, back or neck.
The boy knows how to pose. :D

The AR' s will probably see the scar and say did he get that from racing. Bad racing. NOPE.

I hope it gets better.

The hair is coming back faster than in the spring when I get him sheared.
