About Calvin Hunter:
Calvin is a male Doberman. He is a very shy sweet boy who has no understanding of being inside on a smooth floor, it’s very scary for him. His wound in his leg is nasty and I don’t know what can be done or if it just going to continue to heal by second intention.
Calvin was examined today, thankfully he doesn’t have a bone infection or a fracture. He is heart worm positive which is just about the norm for a dog as a stray in the valley. The wound is significant and the conclusion is that it was ripped by another dog, the awful part is there are lots of indications that someone tried to sew it up with fishing line.. ugh..
We will need to do hydrotherapy on this wound twice a day at the ranch and a bandage change until its fully healed. Dr. Biggerstaff looked at him today and stated over and and over again what a sweet, sweet dog he is. He’s just so very afraid, he won’t walk on a leash inside on smooth floors, it’s obviously very foreign to him. I did get him to walk on a leash for me outside so with time and patience he will understand its okay to be inside.
This boy is a sweetheart, he is very shy but is doing his best to come out and be social. someone will be very lucky to have this quiet subdued gorgeous Doberman. When I get done with Facebook we will begin getting this wound cleaned every day with his medication applied and a bandage. We hope for it to heal much better over the coming weeks. He is also heartworm positive so his treatment for that has begun as well.
