Dakota: Chemically burned on his rear and back leg
Caitlin's Vine Of Bravery Dog Rescue rescued Dakota on September 23rd after being returned back to the shelter he was adopted from. His "owners" returned him with chemical burns all on his rear end and back leg. We have no idea what happened but this poor boy is in a lot of pain. I don't even want to imagine the pain and torture he has probably endured.
Caitlin's Vine Of Bravery Dog Rescue took him to the vet and they said it is definitely a type of burn from a hot liquid or chemical.
His scrotum is filled with fluid and is starting to abscess. He will have surgery on that once we have his infection under control. The rescue started him on anti-inflammatory medicines, pain medicines, antibiotics and a sedative. They sedated him and cleaned up the areas.
He received his first laser treatment and will be getting them every other week to help with inflammation and scarring. At this time, the rescue is unsure of the cost of his surgery that he needs. Each laser treatment is around $20-30 and this will add up quickly.
