Romeo is out of surgery. Sadly he lost half of his lower right jaw and his tongue was ripped in half. AVS is managing his pain with a constant rate infusion of pain meds and he’s on antibiotics. He seems comfortable but they are watching him closely. They will be trying to get him to eat at midnight! Stray Paws will continue with his vet care but we really need your help, the estimate is over $3,000 now and could be more! Please donate here to help cover medical costs.
Here’s how it happened: The owner has two dogs and the bigger dog attacked Romeo, a 6 1 1/2 pound chiweenie, over a treat. His big dog is 75% blind and did not see the little guy coming at him at the time that he was eating his treat. This was seriously a freak accident.
