Bear

Here is Bear on the day of his final suture removal- a triumphant day for all involved! Several months ago Bear somehow got his skin caught on an unknown object and came home with a massive wound on his side. It stretched from top of his back to under his belly, and all the skin in between was pulled back. The next picture is immediately after surgery. Unfortunately, a few days later, it was apparent that a good portion of the skin lost it's blood supply and died ( see third picture). He had a second surgery to remove the dead skin. Over the next few months Bear healed with a combination of bandage changes every few days and five separate surgeries. His amazing owner was committed to getting him healed. We are so happy this great dog his owner can finally resume their normal life together!
