1Treatment: Surgery

Comments: Ogryzek, a three-year old, male Schnauzer was attacked by two dogs while on a walk with his owner. He had severe trauma and lacerations to his back, abdomen and rear legs. The right rear legs had significant muscle damage, and a hernia had occurred in the abdomen just behind the ribs.

Follow Up Care: X-rays were taken that showed no damage to internal organs and no fractures in the right rear leg. Ogryzek was stabilized and went to surgery to repair the hernia in the abdominal wall. The wounds were cleaned out, and he was put on aggressive antibiotic therapy and pain medicine.

Updates: Ogryzek was sent home with antibiotics, antiinflammmatories/pain medicine. He will need lots of TLC, but the owners are happy to have their boy in one piece.
