This dog was having a lovely time in the park chasing sticks that his owner was throwing for him.
Unfortunately a stick landed end first in the ground like a javelin - the dog ran onto it and injured his mouth. As you can see, he's got a nasty wound under his tongue. We flushed the wound to remove any remnants of the stick, then stitched up the wound.
This is an injury we see quite regularly, so please don't throw sticks for your dog. Instead take a ball or other toy that won't injure him. Thank you!
