Beaux is a sweet and friendly 6 month old Catahoula dog who presented to Gallatin Vet Hospital after his nose and muzzle were accidentally struck by an ax. Beaux was very brave and was hardly whimpered during the initial exam. He was given pain medications and sedatives to allow the area to be cleaned and assessed. Lidocaine gel was placed in the wound to provide additional pain relief. Once relaxed, X-rays of the nose and upper jaw were taken to assess if any of the tooth roots were affected. Luckily all of the damage appeared to be soft tissue. (This picture was taken at Beaux’s 2 week recheck, Looking good!)

Meet Henry,a totally cute 19 week old Golden Retriever owned by a local farming family who loves him very much. Henry’s arrival into this family of nine was very much anticipated, however his accident was not. On the day of Henry’s accident it was hot. After a fun time romping in the sun, Henry decided that a nap was in order. So, he found a shady spot to take a rest. Unfortunately it was under the family car. Sure enough the car ran over his right hind leg and broke the capitol physis of his femur.
