Vinnie’s tail was wounded so badly that you could see the bone
He was clearly in a lot of pain and was very distressed when he arrived at Woodgreen. We took him straight to the veterinary team to get him some pain relief, where the vets cleaned his wound and assessed the damage. After examining Vinnie it was clear his tail couldn’t be saved, so the decision was made to amputate it as soon as possible.
Even after such an ordeal, he was very good-natured and the whole team took a shine to him. Gemma, one of our dog handlers, was particularly smitten and even volunteered to take Vinnie home to look after as a fosterer, on top of her busy role. Now happily putting his paws up at Gemma’s, Vinnie was able to rest in a comfy home environment and take some time to heal.
