    DefaultGunny broke his lower jaw

    When I tell you I have no idea what he did I'm not kidding. The 3 dogs were in the backyard I was playing fetch with Gunny, with his Cuz. I threw it, he retrieved it I told all 3 of them to "go last pee"..I walked into my gameroom, went to the bathroom (which I rarely get to do without Gunny he's always next to me), came out of the bathroom and I saw blood on his front legs. I cleaned up his legs, couldn't find anything and noticed his mouth was bleeing. There was so much blood, but I know the mouth bleeds freely so I didn't panic. I thought his left lower canine looked slightly off, iced it and gave him some aspirin. Bleeding stopped, he went to sleep.

    Made a vet appointment first thing this AM. He wouldn't even let me come near his mouth. He accidently bumped it on the way to the car and screamed so loud I started to cry. My vet sedated him and sure enough his lower jaw is fractured. It's a uncommon place, most are down the middle. This is from the tooth next to his lower canine to his canine, almost in a C..like he knocked that part of his jaw off.

    Long story short he'll, spend the night at the vet and be operated on in the AM. My vet said when a dog comes in with a strange off the wall injury it's normally a lab.

    OH NO! Poor Gunny. I hope he feels better soon. Poor baby...just hearing that makes me cringe. I can't imagine how scary that was for you.

    Oh no Deneen, poor boy. I have tears in my eyes, I cant believe he broke his jaw. Give him lots of kisses from the Coleman clan and please keep us posted on his recovery.

    Hugs to all of you...

    I am very sorry. It's awful to see them in pain, isn't it? I am sure you are shook up by this ordeal. My best to Gunny.
