Jasper was chasing rabbits yesterday and came out of the bushed limping, pouring blood out of his paw and gave us a near heart attack.

A visit to the emergency vets for an operation to sew the nicked artery, repair the tendons and sort the cut out resulted in a very unhappy dog who can't go out for at least a week...

Thank Goodness for emergency Vets.  It takes quite a lot to suppress a dog's appetite for fun so it must have been quite a fright.  Hope the recovery is swift.

I would imagine so Dennis, didn't get a chance to look as the blood was pouring out - frightened the hell out of us and left pools on the patio, kitchen and car

Aw my boy .... my fave canine of all time ...  what a fright you must have had ... Were you very far from the vet.. time must have been prettyhcritical if it was an artery ... 

Glad he’s recovering ... that could have been catastrophic...

So Jasper has been in to have his dressing renewed and everything looks fine though he's still not allowed to walk further than the garden to do his business as the tendons need time to knit properly.

He doesn't seem to be in as much pain but he is not a happy dog as usually he walks 5-7 miles every day - just going to have yo put up with it though.
 

@Clicker the vets was about 15 miles away which isn't bad but the route was through Newcastle on a Saturday afternoon which was frustrating to say the least.

Good that his pain levels have settled down BP, hopefully that will continue without any problems and Jasper will get back to his normal self.
