I had a bad issue with the dog next door, someone had hooked the self tightening type leash by both ends, to its leash end, and every time it made a
circle it got tighter.
Long story short , by the time I got involved, the dog had a leash imbedded in its neck....yes I know, sad but the why and how it happen came down to
8-10 year old childeren and a dog that had been off its leash....initially.
After this incident and seeing the horror, I put on my heavyest leather gloves and another pair of winter gloves over them, my leather biker jacket
zipped the sleaves tight and went to help, with bolt cutters and good intentions!
Needless to say I got bit many many times, " small dod weiner/beagle mix" and got the metal chain cut and free from the dogs neck, " I could see
its spine and knew it was time to take action, I had my gun, but have issues with killing anything that is ...well... in that , situation.
What I have to ask is the Doctors ordeers meds afterwards that has me shocked, or maybe I'm just not medically edjumacted anough...
OK, they gave me a tetnis shot, and followed it with 4000 mg...yes 4000...not a mi type, of augmentin XR a day for 10 days 2000 morning 2000
This sounds extreme to me, but uagmentin is not in my norm of antibiotics, I studied some medical, in my college days"20 years ago" and it is not
part of my training.
I read up on it best I can, and found it an expensive alternative to pennicillen/amoxacillin, is that the case and I'm taking 4000 mg equivalent of
Is that normal for a dog bite?
But hey the dog is now a friend and is rather nice to me, and was ok, after nursing the open wounds a bit and my own.
