Our Boxer Izzie was running alongside the horse fence (like she does everyday) and the horses got excited and started rearing up at each other and one of the horse's feet came down on the fence and Izzie was right there... I saw it and the fence hit her and she was bleeding everwhrere... I wiped the blood off with my shirt and it is not a bad cut, a little gash and mostly like road rash.....so doesn't need stitches

Of course she won't go near the fence at all, but otherwise she is acting normal. How do I know if she may have a head injury? Maybe she just got cut on the fence (it's that no-climb 2x4 fencing) maybe no impact from the horse

Anyway as soon as I got her in, I called my Vet and her secretary said she is in surgery and would call me when she could.....
So what do I need to watch for.... the emergency vet is about 30-45 minutes away....so I can load her up and take her if I shouldn't wait

Sorry if this doesn't make sense.... I really fall apart when any of my animals has something wrong.....I would know what to watch for in a person but not a dog.....

The same things you would watch for in a kid. Dialated pupils, vomiting, lethargy, loss of balance, seizures, blood in the whites of the eyes.

Also hold a treat in front of her face and move it slowly side to side to see if her eyes follow it smoothly with both eyes. Also check her ears for any bleeding. If there's blood in the ears take her in right away. Definitely watch her closely throughout the day and make sure to connect with her vet as soon as she is available and take her in if there is any worrisome change. :hug5:

Ohh, one of our horses got our older husky a few years back :(
Yep, same thing that Ginger posted. Nausea, lethargy, whites of the eyes, inability to focus, etc. etc.

Oh Dianne poor baby. I would just keep a close eye on her and if she seems sleepy would indicate she maybe had a concussion. Please keep us updated. :hug8:

Go get a piece of chocolate and move it back and forth in front of your eyes... Are they following it? Good :p
Just kidding. I bet your pup will be just fine. I've seen dogs get plowed by cars and be okay :)eek:)!!!
When I was a kid, we had a very unruly dog that did like to wait with us while we were waiting for the bus. One winter we were out there, and a snow plow came by. Dog decided it would be a wonderful idea to try to chase said snow plow. As the snow plow passed, snow being thrown into the ditch, we see the dog get in the way and dog went flying into the ditch along with all the snow :scared3:
She ended up being just fine, but man, a sight I never thought I would see, nor do I want to see again :faint:

Glad she's doing ok, Dianne. It sure does take a lot out of us though. I would have had to have the whole candy bar to calm down! :hug8:

Just talked to our Vet and she said you guys gave awesome advice..... she wants to check Izzie this afternoon just to be safe cuz she will be out of town this weekend.....

I have to run a couple of errands (drive thru bank and pharmacy) so I will bring Izzie with me since I want to watch her and I won't have to leave her alone in the car!

Thank you everybody!!!
I will update when we get back from the vet.

Scary stuff, but seems like she is doing okay. She may be fence shy for awhile, but that may not be a bad thing. Keep us posted.
