    My dog (Elvis) was taken to the vet on Sunday because he fell down the stairs. I was going to pick him up and the vet called to say he was attacked by another dog and was in surgery. He is going to be transferred to an ICU hospital. I am beside myself with shock. He is the sweetest little beagle. Please say a prayer to St. Francis for him.

    He's in Icu and may need a second surgery. Poor little guy was so out of it.

    Found out he was attacked by a 200 lb St. Bernard.

    Poor baby! Hope he recovers quickly. One thing I will say is that in my experience, our little Beagles are very resilient. So sorry this happened.

    Following you over on FB Nancy. Hope the damage wasn't severe but it doesn't sound good from what you've said so far. Val & I are thinking of Elvis, you and Matt.

    Don't know who owns the other dog but I blame the vet's office. They claim the other dog has never attacked before.

    Thanks Jeff. He's resting and on lots of meds. He just looked so pathetic.

    That is horrible, I so hope he recovers. Why in the world was another dog even near him. Sending you a specific prayer for dogs, by Private message.

    That is awful. I would blame the vet too. I have a beagle myself - they are so sweet. Hope your little guy makes a speedy recovery.

    This happened while your dog was AT THE VET OFFICE?!?! Ok I was a vet tech for over 10 years. This is in no way acceptable. I can't fathom how that could have happened without some serious negligence on the staffs part. I hope your furbaby makes a full recovery. The vet is covering the full cost of all ICU treatment correct? Also I would be having a sit down with the vet and the medical director or practice owner . They need to explain exactly how this happened and what changes they are going to make to guarantee that it NEVER happens again. I am just appalled by this. It's just to common sense to take precautions against this. Good luck and healing thoughts to Elvis!!!

    Yes he fell Sunday because he has bad arthritis. They kept him to give him anti-inflammatories. I was getting ready to go pick him up when they called and told me what happened. Yes they are paying all his bills. From what I understand they were walking Elvis. They were grooming the St. Bernard and he attacked. I'm still in shock.

    I am so sorry, shock it the only reasonable response!! Then anger! Give both you and he a few days to recover ( him physically and you emotionally!!) but I really think they need to sit down with you.

    Sadly sometimes even with a serious mishap or mistake the response is only as involved as the owners reaction.
    That is they may not make needed changes if they don't think your "too" upset. I'm not talking about you needing to yell or scream or cause a reckus but being firm and letting them know your concerns are not just going to go away without follow through from them is appropriate .
    I truly hope this was just a freak accident but that doesn't make is any less difficult for you or Elvis!
