POTP for Chooey

Dear friends,

We are once again riddled with a stressful problem. Chooey and Rin got into a fight. It was awful. I had isolated them from each other the night before, but it wasn't meant to be. This morning, Chooey was carried back to her area with really bad puncture wounds. Also, whenever she opened her mouth, she would tilt her head sideways. I was dead worried that I decided to bring her to the clinic immediately.

The lady vet removed the fur from the puncture wounds but while they were removing it and she was squirming. They accidentally held the area where her jaw was and she made a piercing scream.

We had her x-rayed to find out that Chooey's right mandible is broken. Of all the places, why should it have been there? The veterinarian said that it had probably been due to the impact of Rin's bite which was supposed to be a through and through (right directly below her eye). She also had two puncture wounds just above her brows and the area between her eyes. 

This is part of Chooey's medication and diet. Soft diet composed of Cerelac and Recovery Food. Tolfine 60mg for pain and Augmentin for infection.
The vet said that we would need a brace to repair her jaw and the surgery alone will cost 9,000 php. That's a lot of money and it just breaks my heart that this had to happen to her. 

I made sure to notify the household that Chooey was to remain at the bottom, but somebody had opened the hatch to which she bolted towards Rin. A fight commenced and I just found out of her wounds an hour later because it happened early in the morning. 

This is the best we could do in the mean time because of the inflammation.
Now, Chooey's not to open her right jaw which makes this even more unbearable.

  1. The level of aggression is awful. Have they all been neutered yet?

  7. I am so so sorry to hear this. We had some troubles with Ping and Bob about five years ago and my husband was bit in one scuffle but the dogs where never hurt. We worked really hard on training and management and now we have peace at home but Im still super careful about food being around them because that is the trigger. We now how awful this is and and are sending healing peaceful vibes

  17. We are so sorry. We will pray for her recovery and that they will get along. We have had trouble getting our male dogs to get along. Finally we just built fences on the farm to seperate them all.

    Hope things go better for you!
