Thaught it would be a nice treat to get the rotties pig trotters today after work it's been too long since they had a bone. I was picking up the dog poo while they were eating happily on either side of yard. Harley must of decided with all of his toughness he deserved lilys pig trotter. As you can imagine lily did not agree.
They had a bit of a fight ( no more than a wrestle up in the air) nobody cried or cared after I came over yelling pointing the pooper scooper at them threatening to take there bones. They went back to there bones and carrying on eating.
5 mins or so later I finished picking up everything and went to put the scooper away and noticed Harley's trotter was bloodier than before then actually realized that there was drops of blood everywhere I ran to him and noticed that lily must have bit him on the end of his ear and ripped it to the end (2cm) I ran inside washed hands and got a towel called OH who thaught there had been a murder just about outside l
I put pressure on his ear and every time I seemed to stop the bleeding he would shake his head and it would piss out again. Literally held a bloodied towel to his head for 2 hours. 5 mins to stop bleeding check shake, repeat.
I was thinking vet trip but the only option was busy expensive emergency clinic that said they had at least 3 1/2 hour wait I had plenty of left over bandages from when he cut his foot open
So I get out the super glue that I added to first aid kit after he split the pad on his foot open and put on a few drops. Works like a gem until he shakes then again blood dripping out everywhere. Tried a bandage he pulled it down blood dripping out again. Finally I ended up having to put gauze and tape over the tip then tape the ear down so even if he got bandage off the bugger was still taped down. Then just wrapped him up all around the head tight enough that hopefully he can't get it off and not so tight to choke him. Hopefully lol.
Was going to have him sleep inside but the blood splatter all over our back yard would not look good in my bedroom. He is sleeping alone on verander insted and I'll get up regularly to check on him.
When I finished I came inside I looked like a scene from Texas chainsaw massacre. I had blood from head to toes. All over my clothes face hair was drops
Poor little Harley got beaten up by a girl at 60kgs he is a big lump of softie. But he was a good sport about it sat patiently while I held his ear 3 1/2 hours in total I was out there and I bet if I took the bandage off it would still bleed
Anyone else had a similar accident if so how did u stop the bleeding. If tomorrow it's no better he will have to go to the vet but hopefully the glue will hold by then and it will stop bleeding grrrrrr. Always hurting himself.
