Wink

My prayers go out to you during this difficult time.

Poor little Elvis. He has such a sweet little face. I would give him "cookies". I am glad the vet took responsability for this.

What a sweet doggie! I'm sending prayers right away!
I still don't understand how this could have happened. I know that while grooming, dogs can act differently due to the stress of being around all of those strange sounds, sights, feelings, etc...but does your vet not have a dedicated grooming room for this? The vet I worked at kept all dogs seperate at all times, especially during grooming for just this reason.
Have they notified the owner of the St. Bernard? I don't think it is their fault, but they should be notified of how stressed their dog is during groomings there and may seek a different alternative from now on.
I'm so sorry this happened. Prayers are on the way!

I haven't had much communication with my now former vet. He did say he had surveillance cameras and was going to check to footage so he could see exactly what happened. I agree that it isn't the fault of the owners of the St. Bernard it is the people in charge of the St. Bernard at the time. I'm thinking that maybe he had an area that was sensitive and they hit it and he snapped. I don't understand why he wasn't properly restrained even if he had never attacked before.

We went to see Elvis yesterday and he walked into the exam room instead of us having to go to his cage. They pulled the chest tube late yesterday afternoon and now we need to see if the drainage has stopped or if a new tube needs to be placed. If all goes well they think he may be able to come home Sunday or Monday.

Edit: the former vet called today to see how he was doing and said the other dog's owner hasn't even called to see how Elvis is doing.

I am so sorry this happened to your little doggie and your family! I hope he has and will continue to heal and can come home in a day or two as you mentioned. Poor little guy looked so sad is his pictures my heart just breaks for him honestly. Sending good thoughts and prayers for your little pup Elvis. Please continue to let us know how he gets on.

Word from the vet is - barring unforseen circumstances - he will come home tomorrow!

Both you, and your darling pup, have my best wishes! So happy to hear he is coming home tomorrow, I hope he settles in and has a good recovery. Can't imagine the shock and worry you must have experienced, I would be beside myself and absolutely furious with the vets office.
Best wishes! xxoo

Sending more prayers for your pup. Give him lots of hugs and kisses when he gets home and maybe an extra treat or 2.

What a passive-aggressive so-and-so. He's trying to redirect your anger from him to the owner of the other dog.
