    Default So much for the 3rd week of October

    Well I just got home from the vet, $500 poorer. After our Thanksgiving hunt I noticed Jake had a lump on his head. It quickly progressed and both eyes were swollen shut and his head was twice as big as it normally is. We've been at the vet every day this week and today they put him out and cleaned the abscess and put a drain in. I took the first half of next week off to hopefully hit the big woodcock flights but looks like I have no dog for at least 2 weeks. What a bummer.

    Vet thinks he hit his head and it caused a hematoma that abscessed

    It's amazing what some dogs will go through because of their desire to hunt and please their owner... Heartbreaking photos...

    Yeah even at almost 7 years old his grasp on self preservation isn't very strong. He charges cover like a freight train.

    Wow, your dog's lucky to be alive. After trauma like that, your dog may become more calm and self preserving. My wife's dog earlier this year swallowed a piece of wood (idiot), cost 6g's to save her. She is a completely different dog after that. Not so full steam ahead anymore.

    Sorry to hear about the pup. Hope it works out and he makes a full and quick recovery.
    Take the warning labels off. Darwin will solve the problem.

    So sorry to hear that Nick. Timing is bad. Trust your spaniel makes a full recovery.
    Referring to what Bo said, I have a setter that was attacked by a deer (fawn must have been near by). She kept hunting until I noticed blood on the trail - 14 inch cut along her side, pierced lung, but kept going. $3000. later .......
