I saw a lot of dogs who were injured because of playing with wooden sticks in the pet hospital. The worst one was even killed. This is true, and it often happens. But you don't need to worry too much. As long as you take some simple protection measures, you can protect your dog from harming. The following is the best way to protect your dogs that can not be hurt by wooden sticks.

The dogs pierced by the branches

First of all, we need to understand how the wooden stick hurts your dog? The most common cause of dog injuries to play sticks is to catch up or bite the wooden stick. Generally speaking, the injury is more serious than the injury to the bite, but the bite the stick brings more troubles, like a wooden card in the gums (or other things stuck in the mouth), and there is The wood will also stuck in the dog's digestive tract and the respiratory tract to obstruct digestion and breathing. This situation is very dangerous, and sometimes there is danger of life.

Dogs who like to find things

Below I summarized some of the most common dogs that were injured when bite the stick:

1. Small wooden slag tied to the tongue, throat, or on the gums.

2. The larger wooden chips will tie the gums or the surface of the upper jaw, or even pierce directly into the upper jaw. This injury will cause very serious damage to the teeth and jaw, and surgery must be performed.

3. The larger wood chips are swallowed into the digestive tract to cause the digestive tract to stimulate, bleed and block. Regardless of the size of the wood chip in the trachea, it may cause the respiratory tract stimulation, obstruction and infection. This fragment also pierces the trachea or lung tissue, causing chest infections or even damage to the heart, nerves and blood vessels.

The damage caused by the sharp wooden stick directly pierced: as follows:

1. Eyes: The wooden stick will directly damage the eyes. If the power of penetration is large enough, the wooden stick will pierce the eyes and damage the dog's brain.

2. Mouth: Wooden sticks will hurt a lot of important organizations in the mouth: tongue, throat tissue, upper jaw, teeth, esophagus and trachea. These trauma will also hurt the nerves and blood vessels around the dog's neck, and they will also damage the dog's sinus and brain according to the different direction.

3. chest: We all know that most important organs of dogs are in the chest cavity, so it can be imagined that the damage caused by the stabbing of the wooden stick will be very serious. In addition to the heart and lungs, there are many large blood vessels and important nerves in the chest, as well as diaphragm, trachea and esophagus.

4. Abdominal: The wooden stick is stabbed into the abdominal cavity directly to multiple internal organs. The organs that are usually damaged include stomach, liver, spleen and intestines. To make matters worse, sometimes, although doctors do their best, there will still be some small wood fragments that are missed when surgical detection and removal, because the wood, especially some small pieces, will not appear on the X -ray appear. Essence

What should you do if the dog has been injured?

1. Send your dog as soon as possible to the pet hospital for examination and treatment. The delay will not only reduce the pain of the dog and the sadness of the owner, but also increase the risk of death. If possible, call the veterinarian in advance to let them understand the situation and prepare as soon as possible before you arrive.

2. Don't try to move the wooden stick. It is best to leave the wooden stick in situ and hand it to the veterinarian to deal with it so that the veterinarian can see the parts pierced in the stick can also be evaluated. Sometimes leaving wooden sticks in it can prevent big bleeding and lung atrophy. The only thing you should do is leave the stick in place.

3. Be careful not to touch the tip of the wooden stick when you transfer the dog to the veterinarian. Do not try to break or saw the wooden stick, because the vibration may make the wooden stick shift or even cause further damage. You can only cut the end of the stick without causing vibration and shift. Use a T -shirt, towels or soft things to wrap the broken end of the stick. This can prevent the dog from piercing your dog again to cause greater internal injuries.

4. If the wooden stick is pierced into the chest, you should keep the dog's supine posture on the way to the pet hospital, and you should not lie on the side of the dog. This is to compensate the lungs that are injured by puncture damage to the other side of the lungs that are not injured.

In short, it is very dangerous to let dogs playing wooden sticks. If your dog loves to chase the movement, for his safety, you can use a safer flying tray instead of the wooden stick. If your dog loves things, you can give him a belt or a dog bite to replace the wooden stick.
