Good news for Smokie
The vet thinks we have dodged the bullet on Smokie. He says she could not have wounded herself in a better place as far as a natural drainage situation can be set up. The fact that she hasn't punctured her intestine is incredible.
Now we just need to keep guarding against infection. Antibiotics, continued flushing of the wound is in order.
I am less scared. Could we be any more blessed? Don't think so.
