Surgery saves dog with lung perforated and exposed
Air billowed out of the wound with every breath she took, and she cowered in a thicket, hiding and confused by pain. With a degloving wound over her ribs and a punctured lung, we didn’t know if this old girl could survive such a trauma. We rushed her into emergency surgery, inserting a tube to re-establish negative pressure, thoroughly flushed the wound and began the several layers of sutures that we hoped would save her. We would wait for several days before we knew if she would make it. But her extraordinary will to live was even bigger than her wound. Watch beautiful Maxine today. And for the sweetest older dogs who are out there now, Please donate.
