  1. Mooch that's not necessarily the case. Mine had a nearly identical injury, I wish I could find the pictures. The vet stitched it but the area was simply too damaged and the skin was pulled too tight. Everything went necrotic and died off leaving a bigger hole than the original wound. Opinions sought from 3 other vets, including a long distance consultation with my old boss because I trust him the most and they all said the same: stitching it was a mistake and my dog paid for it with a lot of pain and a much longer recovery. Sometimes treating as an open wound is the best option depending on wh
  2. Not easy with that kind of wound, you've done well
  3. My car is languishing in the garage this weekend, post MOT fail, which means I've had to settle for walking out local from the house. It's too b@stard warm and there are people everywhere. The woods I used to walk about 10 years ago are strewn with rubbish. The riverside I used to sit on almost daily is literally choked with rubbish, there's next to no wildlife, and there's so much of that Himilayan balsam the place stinks to high heaven and I had to karate chop my way through it in a fit of temper. Dog hammered a squirrel in front of a load of kids in the woods, which lead to me being c
  4. I was only 2 then My son actually had that playing in his room the other week, been a long time since I heard it. Amazing the memories music gives us. This thread has enriched my Spotify playlist 10 fold!
  5. My mum has traced us back through her dad's side, all the way to John of Gaunt. Which would mean I'm decended from King Edward the 1st, except there was a rumour that Mr Gaunt was actually the love child of a butcher from Ghent, so who knows One ancestor burned for heresy, one a naval officer gifted land (and slaves) in the Americas for his service. His family were loyalists, and they made a run for Canada when the Americans decided they didn't want to play with the British anymore. One of them, a young boy, was captured by Natives. He stayed with them into adulthood, had 3 wives.
  6. Vitamin C with Zinc is best for boosting your immune system. In general I've found magnesium really helpful for generally having a bit more energy and sleeping better, which of course has a positive effect on your immune system as well
  7. Someone's actual profile pic on Match... I laughed really hard
  8. One of mine had a similar injury, caught her chest on barbed wire. Against my better judgement, I let the vet stitch it up. He put loads of tension sutures in because it was such a tight pull. And as I suspected would happen, all the skin died and everything pulled apart, and she ended up with a wound twice as big. Took 6 months to heal, was the size of a bloody grapefruit. I used Manuka honey on mine but it was easier to dress than that is. I'd be inclined to treat that as an open wound. Definitely wants antibiotics and probably pain meds if it just happened. Then keep clean and dry, goo
  9. Pretty much stayed local-ish all summer... never got bored.
