    Default Kick in the Face

    Dog was accidentally kicked in the face last night playing in the snow. Vet appointment Friday. Meantime...


    • He has a black muzzle/snout. There's a red stripe there now - will that heal?



    • Pretty sure he's bruised somewhere inside because he can't control his drool & chews a little differently - takes longer to chew a treat & often drops them. Can't find the bruise. Wondering how long that might take to heal? His drooling was awesome - almost zero - prior to this.


    Thx...

    Go figure Van never gets snow either. Probably swelled up inside from the kick. And yes explains the drooling. Did you checked his teeth? Any loose?

    Yep, checked, not easy. Don’t think so.

    How long before the swelling goes down?

    What about the... (scar?). In that spot, will it heal, or stay pink?

    What do you mean by red stripe? Like is it a cut or scrape? If so, for time being, put some coconut oil and rub it on. Not much you can put there cause he’s going to lick it off. CO is natural, great for inflammation, scars and will help heal. Rub in properly as he willlick it but at least but rubbing it in and massaging it, the skin will still absorb most of it.

    Neither. The area around his mouth is black. Now there’s a little pink - from a distance it looks like the tip of his tongue is out. Just wondering if this heals?

    To me, looks like the kick simply swelled up the lip. Hey, if i get kicked in the mouth, I sure would have a fat lip too.

    Some warm water and add a bit of Epsom salt will work. Like 2 cups of warm water n one teaspoon of Epsom salt. Do little compression on it. Like little dabs. It’s going to help with the swelling. Don’t give him any treats for now if he has problems chewing. If you’re feeding kibbles, you might want to soften it up with warm water. Your vet will check the gums n all and will decide what to give him if he needs anything. I think since this just happened it will take a few days before he gets back on track. If he’s in pain aspirin can be given to dogs BUT I would start with the epsom salt first.

    He's probably in pain...swelling and drooling will soon stop. Drooling can be associated with irritation/pain. My guess is...If he's eating OK, he'll be fine in a week or so.

    Who says Bulldogs can't fly?

    Yep, but there's always blood when he plays w/the basketball - tongue, collateral damage, etc. So I usually curb it to 5 minutes or so. Hard to explain. Posted a couple of videos on Instagram - salo.the.bully. Happened at night, didn't see the kick - someone else at the park was playing w/him when it happened...

    Saw the vet yesterday morning. She found several ulcers in his mouth, some very deep/far back inside. Due to his history/UTIs/Kidneys, we did a blood test. All good. She thinks he took in some road salt because she can't see it all being from the kick or play. And, there was a smell so there's an infection. She prescribed a pain killer & antibiotics.

    Drooling improved after the first pain killer dose. This morning, he stole & chewed a ball/park like it was no big deal - stopped him, not allowed for a week.


    Thx for asking.
