Well... when I went to TX last week I boarded my dogs at my vets office. Now this vet I love.. (normally) and she has been my vet for 21 yrs.. since I was 10 yrs old.

So, I drop my dogs off. I use their prong collars since some of the techs are not strong enough to hold my dogs.. and if Harley sees a cat.. there is no way with a regular collar they could hold him. So fast forward to a few days ago when I notice that Sasha's fur is bumped up around her neck. I pull her hair up and notice bloody scabs.. not one.. not two.. not three.. but all the way around her neck and throat. I'm like.. hmmm.. so I grab her prong collar.. sure enough those scabs match up to the collar. Not only this, but they fed my dogs the science diet at the vet instead of the food I sent along.

Well, I called and they told me it was "not policy" to take collars off dogs. Okay.. but a prong collar?? Left on a dog for 5 days?? Just how much attention did my dogs get that no one noticed these bloody scabs on her neck? No one noticed that because of the food she had scratched her shoulder bloody?? No one noticed that for some reason her ear is FULL of crusty blood???

WTF happened to my dog????????????????

Sorry these pics are with my cell phone in low light...

I just have to laugh that the image of Sasha's ear violated photobucket's terms of use

Hahahahahaha... not that it really matters to me. But I was curious just what I violated by having a picture of my dogs ear on photobucket. Apparently they thought it was a picture of "something else" ROFLMFAOOOOOOOOOOo..... I don't know what else it could look like???? They restored the picture...

I think you have a law suit for animal neglect against the vet. Leaving a prong collar on for 5 days is blantant negligence and the vet should have known better. Whether that is something you want to do, I don't know. When I saw the ear picture, I thought it was something else too. It wasn't until I read your post that I figured it out. Poor dog! That is horrible.

That does suck. Poor girl..
I guess it just depends on the vet, when I boarded one of my dogs a few yrs back it was their policy to take all collars and tags off. With that being said, they lost his collar and tags. I asked why they were even off in the first place and they said it was policy so they didnt get caught in the cage. Not to mention the tons of fleas he came home with. So I guess either way, it sucks to have to board.

OMG you sent me into a coughing fit with that one (i'm sick and it's in my chest). You know.. I was trying to think of all the XXX rated things it could have looked like.. and I think if ANY of those things look like that pic someone has a serious problem.. Laughing

Jesus! That's horrid! I'd be chewing out the vets something fierce! When I'd boarded a foster dog who had corn allergies at my vet and they fed her Science Diet I about went off. The people who handled her the entire weekend were written up and I had my account credited for the boarding - I've been going to my vet for years and send her a lot of clients, so if I'm unhappy, she works to take care of it since I help her business out a LOT. (She's totally awesome - I really couldn't ask for a better vet.)

When I first saw the ear, I thought it was a bad case of genital warts on someone's butt hole. LOL. I thought some sicko posted it here. It took a while to figure it out. Funny, Huh?

I'm an RN and I've seen some pretty nastly looking things. Believe me when I say that it looks like what I thought it was. That's what it looks like up close.
