He bled from his mouth and nose, and seemed disoriented. We suspected head injury and hurried him to our hospital, but were relieved to find him alert and cognitively stable. But we soon realized that he had a hairline jaw fracture. Puppies this young have soft bones that knit together rapidly, so we did not wire his jaw, and were delighted that with pain medicine to ease the swelling, Barnaby ate like a champ.
We kept him quiet and comforted for 15 days, and as he grew stronger, we could see how eager he was to go back to his parents and siblings. This injury healed well, but without pain medicine, soft food and loving care, Barnaby might have died without eating again.
Meet him now, big and strong. Help injured sweethearts heal.
