'Stick Injuries' - Please don't throw sticks for your dog! We are posting this graphic photo to highlight the risks of throwing sticks for your dog. Vet surgeries will see many stick injuries every year and they can range from mild trauma to life-threatening damage. This dog presented in shock with blood running from his mouth and had an emergency anaesthetic to assess his injuries. Fortunately, a few weeks later he has recovered well but we had to remove a portion of stick still embedded in the back of his throat that had broken off, and repair a penetration wound alongside his larynx and oesophagus caused by a larger piece of stick. If by highlighting the dangers of stick-throwing we can stop a few people doing this we can perhaps at least prevent further cases in the future.
