This handsome dude who looks good in the cone of shame is Jaxxon, a 3-year-old mixed pup. He got a little adventurous one day and ended up finding himself with a pretty significant cut… in his groin area. Can you say, “YOWCH!”
She rushed Jaxxon to the vet where she was told he needed stitches.
For those who don’t know, a deep cut in a dog requires immediate treatment to prevent severe infection, tissue damage, and blood loss. If your dog has a major cut, make sure to get a handle on the bleeding before any first aid is given. And, if your dog is bleeding severely, this will require immediate veterinary attention. If the blood coming from the cut is spurting or bright red, this is a serious and life threatening wound. You should apply immediate pressure to the wound (do not clean the wound just apply pressure) and keep applying pressure. Take the dog to the nearest veterinary clinic for treatment. Pressure should continue to be applied to the wound during the transport.
Jaxxon's mom is a single mom and is on a limited income. She applied to Fur Kids Foundation for help, and we were happy to step in and help.
Jaxxon received stitches and antibiotics. And while he really didn’t love the cone of shame, his mom knows it's best for him.
