Well it finally happened. The neighbor's mutt got into my pen, still figuring it out since the fencing is 6 feet high and hot wired, and got one of my girls. Had the vet come out and take a look at her this am. She has a half dollar sized hole in the side of her face. Doc wouldn't do anything besides put cream on it, looking for a new vet, says it will have to heal on it's own. Anyone else ever delt with a hole in the side of the mouth? I feel like I should close it since you can see her teeth now. Should I or just do as doc says and leave it open and let it's close on it's own? Never fails something happens to your favorite animal huh? BTW, the dog will not be getting anyone elses livestock.
