Just wanted to let you all know - Olive was involved in a dog fight this morning where the other dog broke Olive's ulna by her wrist, and her radius by her elbow, and messed up the ligaments in Olive's wrist. She is currently in a giant bandage for teh next two days until we figure out surgery options. I'll post pictures tomorrow when I calm down.

Sorry for the vague post yesterday, it doesn't really tell what happened. It was Olive and her littermate Copper. They are usually separated 100% of the time because they don't get along but Copper learned how to jump the fence in the backyard and the back door was propped open so she came right inside where Olive was. I was home and broke up the fight, luckily neither Copper or I was hurt. Her ulna is broken down by the wrist and and her radius is broken closer to the elbow, kind of a weird situation so splinting isn't an option and we will go to surgery in a couple days.

Oh poor Olive, that is a huge bandage. I hope her surgery goes well. You'll be in our thoughts.
I never realized her and Copper didn't enjoy each other, naughty girls. Glad you didn't get hurt breaking up the fight too. I always say for the worst dog fights it takes 2 bitches. I grew up with malamutes and most bitches would just as soon kill each other as look at each other. The boys were much more mellow.

So sorry to hear about Olive - thankfully you were not hurt, it could have been much, much worse.

Keep us updated as she heals!

That is one big bandage. Thankfully neither you nor Cooper were hurt! Hopefully she gets well soon happy :)

And I agree with Summer...bitch fights are the worst! Used to own a blue-tick coonhound and she was fine with males, but she'd even just see a female and she'd go bonkers. Same in the human world at times! Haha.

Thank you everyone for your kindness! She's hanging in there. She tends to be in a lot of pain in the mornings since her meds start to wear off but during the day she seems better. She sleeps most of the day on the couch and gets carried outside a couple of times throughout the day for potty breaks. Olive goes in today to get a cast put on her leg to replace the bandage. This will ensure her leg is safe until her surgery next Thursday.

Sorry, did you say why there is such a delay in treatment? With humans you certainly wouldn't be waiting so long with the risk of fat embolis, vascular damage and compartment syndrome .... How are you supposed to be checking her perfusion with such an occlusive cast? Just worried for her.

Did you know?
There are about 900 breeds of sheep in the world.
Did you know?
A specialty show may be regional or national. A "Best in Show" win at a national specialty show is tremendously prestigious, indicating that the winning dog or bitch triumphed at a contest which attracted entries from the most serious fanciers of that breed in the country or continent. Some specialty shows attract international entries.
Did you know?
Judges are generally certified to judge one or several breeds, usually in the same group, but a few "all-breed" judges have the training and experience to judge large numbers of breeds.
