Laila got impaled today!!!!

My poor little girl was running and playing in the yard with Lexi when I heard her yelp. But she then continued to play so I didn't think anything was wrong. She then came to me for snuggles, and THAT IS NOT NORMAL, so I knew something was wrong. I saw this stick (4 INCHES LONG) by her leg, and I tugged on it, she yelped and I tugged again, thinking it was just stuck in her hair. But.. It was straight through her flesh!! We had to break the stick to pull it out of each side. I have cleaned it out and wrapped it up, but wonder if I should get her antibiotics tomorrow???

Awww Poor Laila. Ouch ... If it was me, I'll take her to the vet just to be sure everything it's OK . Good luck. Feel better, little Laila.

Poor little Laila,you did very well to get the stick out of her,it's so hard to know if they require antibiotics,vets tend to pump them in regardless,but on the other hand the last thing you want is for her to get an infection.Hope all goes well and that she is a good patient!

Yes, it went completely through! 2 inches on each side. We had to break it in half to get it out.

yeah Laurie. Check with the vet on this ,as I',m not sure. Sometimes when someone or an animal gets "implaled" with this sort of thing, you are better off leaving it in, and getting to a vet right away. Sometimes when you pull it out they can bleed profusely. It depends whether an artery is there. Check with him on this. This obviously didn't bleed bad, but it could have if it was a different area. ??
