Just saw this Fia - what a shock! I know little Rosie, mad darling little creature! Let us hope the injuries looked worse than they actually are, and that Rosie will make a full recovery. Let's face it, most of us humans and animals don't get through life without some injuries. She is alive. She is young. Her immune system will be working right now on repairing the damage. Fia, you will have to be a good nurse and give her her pain medications and try to keep her spirits up, without alarming her with your own fearful feelings.

It has only just happened. We all know what people who have had plastic surgery look like straight afterwards, all puffy and bruised - this is probably just as dramatic looking, but it will settle down. the main thing is to keep infection at bay.

I wish Rosie a complete recovery, and Fia I know how you are feeling, it's horrible, but she is home safe with you and let tomorrow take care of itself.

ps Take photos - in case you need any legal help.

Thank you Maureen, fortunately she swallowed the painkiller, tucked inside a tiny piece of tuna but too painful for her to make it to the garden and she seems to prefer to lie on the drain oozing blood rather than on the stitches on the other side!

Try not to be too shocked when you see her, she will probably have a couple tubes left in the side of her neck for the muck to come out. Your be amazed in a couple of weeks she will look so much better! Ive had it happen to one of my dogs a few years ago. His scaring faded and in time he was as good as new, and his personality never changed! Goodluck with your girl.

This happened to Jammy a year ago by another greyhound who I was looking after. I'm not going into much detail because I still get very upset about it.

As a result Jammy had 4 ops and spent 2 weeks in the vets. She nearly died.
The other gryehound had some problem that made her loopy.
Where did this happen Fia?

Thank you Maria, that has really cheered me up. At the moment everytime she moves she is crying out and there seems to be blood oozing everywhere.

Hi Cheryl, it happened in a big park where I live.

Fia - the first 4 or 5 days will be the worst, and you will think she'll never recover, but just get past those first 4 or 5 days and you will see her turning a corner. Dried blood smells quite unpleasant and so will any infection coming up out of the puncture wounds. If she is sore or in great discomfort, that's not so bad, since it will tend to keep her very still and allow th healing to take place.

Best wishes to Rosie! She just needs you to keep her company for now!

Thank you, that is reassuring. Rosie is now letting me stroke the top of her head, then she lets out a long sigh and goes to sleep, so that's a good sign already!

Hope your Rosie recovers quickly. Like others have said the screaming triggers prey drive in greyhounds and is definitely what set off the attack. Even sweet greyhounds that are not aggressive at all can attack a dog or animal that is screaming. Even dogs they know sometimes, but even more so with a dog they don't know.

Dogs get over attacks much more quickly than humans. Dogs can have a fight and be laying next to each other within minutes with the fight totally forgotten. Her reaction to dogs in the future will totally depend on your reaction. If you are stressed when another dog comes up and worry about her getting attacked and tighten up on the leash or act nervous, she will pick up on your stress and think you are afraid of the approaching dog. That can cause her to be afraid or aggressive towards it. If you are calm and don't expect her to be attacked neither will she.

You acting fearful or nervous can trigger her to act the same which can actually trigger an attack by another dog. That is why some dogs seem to be victims and are attacked over and over. When walking keep her beside or behind you instead of letting her lead the walk. If you are in front, calm and confident you set the tone because you are the first thing another dog meets on a walk. She will be less stressed if she feels she can trust you to protect her and knows you are a confident calm leader.

Oh Fia, sorry to hear what happened to poor Rosie, I truly hope she recovers as quickly as she can, which I am sure she will as she has you tending to her.
Thinking of you and give Rosie a very soft hug for me, Fia xxxxxx

Fia
I am so sorry to read what has happened to Rosie , it must have been awful . I had an incident with 2 of my retired dogs, one of them attacked the other but it was soon forgotten between them and I had no problems with them after that . A very nice 350.00 vet bill though . As for worrying about taking Rosie out for walks again please read Joannes post , she has written exactly what I was going to and it is what is needed for your future walks with Rosie.
I hope Rosie has a speedy recovery .

Hello everyone!

Rosie has had a quiet day, managed chicken and rice and her medication, made it into the garden twice and lets me gently stroke the top of her head and her chest now! The drain is dripping watery blood which I'm told is a good sign and apart from part of her wound oozing in one place I'm very pleased with her recovery.

Thanks so much for your advice on walking her later on, I will have to think very hard about my own behaviour, I certainly don't want to transfer any fear to Rosie! When she's been nervous before on the lead I found quietly singing to her helped as we were walking along, whether it really helped or whether my cattawauling shocked her into oblivion I won't know, ha-ha!

The vets bill came to 850, had to pick myself off the waiting room floor and sit down for a while!

When you walk Rosie the best thing you can do is to start singing to yourself and forget you have Rosie on a lead, she will relax very quickly and walk perfectly by your side .
