our new puppy:

Bandit, an Australian Blue Heeler (Australian Cattle Dog) 10 weeks.





The thing is still tiny (maybe still under 10lbs). My boston terrier (13mths old and 27lbs) is already jealous and kind of beating up on the new puppy.

So my dog just bit the crap out of her tongue. She and my daughter were running around the house with a broom and a penguin and the next thing I knew there was blood on the floor.
I figured she would be OK in a few so I put her out with fresh water and forgot about it. About 30 min later I checked and the water was filled with blood and there was a good bit of blood all over her muzzle, paws, the ground ect. I checked her out throughly and her teeth are all there and the hole is to the front of the tounge. Another 30 min and she is still bleeding like a stuck pig. I held a towel in her mouth to try to get some pressure on it. I know mouths bleed like crazy and I am not one to generally overreact to blood, but is there anything that a vet can really do? Besides charge me 800$ to tell me that mouths generally bleed a lot and heal quickly?

I'll post some pics maybe.

My dog has been having some recurring health issue. He'd been getting frequent UTIs, which we noticed because he had to pee all the time. He's been on antibiotics a couple times. His symptoms will start to go away, then as soon as he's off the drugs he'll start having to pee all the time again. For awhile he was waking us up in the middle of the night, now he's peeing while we're gone during the day. Goes out at least once an hour when we're home, and drinks water like it's going out of style. He may have had an infected prostate as well, was swollen (he's neutered).

Got another vet appointment on Friday, but the whole thing is getting expensive and frustrating. No kidney problems that we've been able to track down so far, no stones, no obvious cancer. Doesn't look like diabetes (I check his blood sugar myself hah). I don't think it's just straight incontinence either.

Just venting I guess. shog[1].gif

Tongue should bleeding stop pretty quickly unless it a major cut. 

 

LMD - how do you go from a BT to a ACD? Very cool breed - one of my favourites. Tough, tough dog.

Another amish puppy?

Gorgeous images, pup is too cute for words. Love the Boston Terrier as well, I've always felt that they were the perfect looking pooch.

YEah, it finally stopped. It was pretty brutal though, it took a good two hours to stop. Hell of a puncture. The internet said to ice it, how the fuck do you ice a dog's tongue? I settled on ice cubes in her water dish with a dash of milk so she'd drink it.

She'd lick her nose and muzzle to get the blood off but doing so would cause blood to flip off of her bleeding tongue, sending Jackson Pollock style drips over the floor and walls. Pretty sweet.

there was lesbian couple we became friends with at Sandy Hook new jersey beach last summer that had a Blue heeler. That blue heeler got along so well with the boston terrier we took note. This year even in dog runs (in florida, Boston, and brooklyn) when our Boston would see the rare/random ACD they'd be instant friends playing non stop and all out. I'm weary about the exercise requirements, but then again I always wanted a dog I could run miles with, sadly I guess you're not supposed to run with boston's for those kind of distances.

my boston is weird... he seems to get along swimmingly with specific breeds: doberman pinchers/Rottweilers/german shepherds/mastifs/pittbulls and ACDs. so we decided on an ACD. Yup same place we got the boston from. The boston turned out so well we went with them again.

NorCal - I'm happy the bleeding stopped. I was at a dog run two weeks ago and a pitbull bit into her own tongue and was bleeding heavily. it stopped after 5min, but it was hilarious seeing this huge ghetto dude in near tears hugging his dog while the thing still wanted to play and clearly wasn't in pain.

Patrick_B that puggle is awesome those dogs are surprisingly athletic and love to tussle.

its different families in the area that have specific breeds this time we really went into the barn and saw the mother and father (both working dogs on the farm) and the rest of the litter (there were only 3 left from a litter of 10).

cute as hell! my folks have an ACD...REALLY smart dogs....almost too smart. Best advice i can give is to keep him active....they need work. We would get all of her toys and hide them throughout the house....then shed spend time searching the house and collecting them all and putting them away. When we kept her busy, she was a perfect pooch. As soon as they got the other 2 dogs, they werent as able to spend a ton of time with her..it definitely showed in her demeanor.
