    Default HELP .. attacked dog..

    Please help..

    My sisters female husky has attacked her yorkshire terrior when they were out. Its not like her but with my sister having 2 young children she cant take any chances and the husky will ve re homed asap.

    Anyway.. The yorkshire terrior is breathing quite oddly now. My sister has checked him over and bathed him as there was quite a bit of blood and soaked the wounds in salt water he has NO wounds near his chest / lung and stomach area theyr on his face and most are like scratches rather than deep wounds. His eye is quite badly cut though and looks sore.. She has said its bloodshot quite badly (im not sure how sore and where wound is exactly im just stating what my sister put in the texts) ..
    Could he be breathing oddly from shock ? Or does she need to get him to an emergancy vet? He lets you touch wounds and bathes them and apart from shaking he seems ok xx

    I really have no experience with anything like this, just wanted to say good luck to your sister, I will tag a few people. If it was me I would take the dog to the vet to be on the safe side.

    Thankyou for tagging people. The vets are closed and the emergancy vets are quite a distance away he will definatly be going but were just trying to work out if he will be okay until the morning for the local family vet or not. Thankyou for your help. Shes said he keeps sneezing but sounds wierd like a choke (to me that sounds like a backwards sneeze) x

    I would hate to speculate, but if his nose was hurt, then that might be why he is sneezing, and he may be doing a reverse sneeze. But with out hearing it, I don't know for sure. Just have her watch him and f he get worse with his breathing then she should take him in, but if he stays the same then I would think she can wait till tomorrow to take him to her vet.

    Oh no, poor little man. Just advise her to keep an eye on him and if he gets worse to take the drive to the vet. Does your local vet not have an emergency call out? Try ringing the office sometimes the answer machine tells you where to call in emergency x

    Poor thing. I'm wondering if the breathing problem could be from a fractured rib possibly? That's quite a size difference between the two dogs and the yorkie unfortunately got the bad end of the fight. She should call her vet and at least la e a message - they may check voicemail and call her back. its worth a shot. Does she know if it was the husky or yorkie that provoke the fight? I sure hope he'll be ok.


    That's too bad about having to rehome the husky but sometimes it's for the best of all.

    I was thinking the same thing about a broken rib. I'd call the vet, too.

    If the dog is shivering it could be cold and possibly in shock, wrap and hold in a towel to see if it will stop.... If the breathing is still irregular, I would call the e-vet. Perhaps they can Skype the e-vet since it's so far away and get some sort of diagnosis whether or not to hit the road.

    Agree with above, check the gums and tongue make sure they are pink in color. If they look bluish purple that means they are not getting any oxygen

    Shes on her way to the emergancy vets we have 3 local vets but they all put you through to the same out of hours emergancy vet. Shes on her way down now because hes not calming down with his breathing and shaking.

    Theyr not sure who provoked it.. The yorkshire terrior doesnt have any teeth so the husky doesnt have a mark on her.. Neither have an agressive side and are both brilliant with other dogs.. I personally have said to her .. Ellie the husky is 8months old and yet to have her first season. Rocky the yorkshire terrior is nearly 6yrs old and un-neutered because hes never humped marked his territory etc.
    I have said to my sister my personal opinion is maybe ellie bear is coming into heat soon and rocky got a bit frisky with her and she didnt like it..

    Thankyou all i can always rely on u lot in an emergancy

    I hope they give ellie a chance even just a few days to prove herself to them.. shes meekos best friend :-( and i dont think its fair rehoming her because Rocky has been hurt.. Nobody knows how badly hurt Ellie could have been if Rocky still had any of his teeth. And nobody knows what happend as they were out. Il keep you all updated xx
