Neck Update

The vet prescribed a tube of Tritop ointment and some chlorhexiderm solution for Waldo's neck. The wound has progressed into a skin infection so these meds should help keep it clean and microbal-free. My vet says that the fur *should* grow back... I just hope he doesn't have a bald spot there forever. It's in the general area of where a collar would sit, so having bare skin there will be uncomfortable for him.

The Tritop is to be used for the next 5-7 days. Hopefully he will heal up in that time and we can get back to normal.

This is just so disgusting. Please do everthing possible to bring it to the attention of people who can make a difference. If it happened here the R.S.P.C.A. would be down on them fast - isn't there an equivalent in the U.S? If only animals could speak what they could tell us.......

I have got 2 lawyers (husband and first son) in the family if you would like them to check out any agreement for you in the future. I know law is different in the U.S. to the U.K. but to check out the legal jargon I don't think you could go far wrong.

Finally an enormous amount of loves for Waldo and I hope like mad that his coat does grow back. Please keep us posted.

This is terrible :( and a far cry from an "allergic reaction" to the collar. Maybe the media should be informed of their policies? There is no excuse for what happened to Waldo. If you MUST use a bark collar, for goodness sake use it correctly!!

Please continue to take pics and document everything.

I would want alot more answers from the owner of Dogma
