Laxa, a beautiful lively young Springer Spaniel, was enjoying a morning walk in Everdon Woods in the beginning of June. To his owner’s shock and dismay Laxa came back with full circumferential skin wound to his right front leg and had practically skinned it.
Laxa was rushed down to Towcester Veterinary Centre and seen by vet Jen Calder. He was immediately taken to theatre and after several hours of flushing, cleaning and stitching Jen had put Laxa back together but had concerns about potential damage to the blood supply to the skin below the cut.
Laxa came in for twice weekly dressing changes for 4 weeks which he had to be sedated for each time. Not only was this stressful for Laxa to go through but it also demanded a significant time and financial commitment from his dedicated owners.
We are thrilled with how well Laxa’s wound has healed and think he has been very brave throughout his treatment.
