Tammy, my heart still hurts over what happened to sweet Benny. I can't imagine how hard this has been on you. Thank you so much for posting this and although the pictures are hard to look at, they have certainly made us aware of the dangers.

I will continue praying for Benny. I have a really strong feeling that his spark will return and he'll be just as he was before. Please give him a gentle hug from me.

I would hate to live in a world without dogs, glass, or wine...

I know the pictures are hard for everyone to look at. I always prided myself in being such a good malt mom. Being smart about food and health care choices for B&E, bringing them to good vets, etc....YET this STILL happened. It's certainly a lesson to us all. We can never be too cautious or over protective of our little ones. Never be afraid to ask! I also had no clue about the dangers of heating pads prior to this happening. So the more people that are aware the better off our babies will be.

Oh how horrifying! I am so sorry you and your baby had to go through this. Although difficult to see, thank you for sharing, it would never have occured to me to even ask that question.

I am so sorry, this is horrible. Vet offices should not be using heating pads, period. In human hospitals, they use warmed blankets because of the burn potentials of heating pads.

Completely heart breaking. Lifting up a prayer!

Tammy -- thanks for posting again. If you don't mind, I'm going to sticky this post.

I've been in dogs (breeding, showing, etc.) for more than 30 years and yet, I still have never seen anything like this. It was a real eye opener for me.

When Tilly had her mole removed a couple of weeks ago, even though only a local was used, I asked about heating pads. Because of what happened to sweet little Benny, I now know to check on this whenever I'm leaving any of my fluffs for a procedure.

Tammy -- how is your little boy doing? Hope he's healing well (the picture after the stitches are out looks great). How's he doing emotionally?

It is amazing how smart we all are and how little we know really. Thank you Tammy for helping educate all of us---we learn at little Benny's expense.
I also learned to put a seat belt on my babies because someone on here lost a little girl in an accident after a spay. Hard lessons.
Kisses to sweet Benny, big hug for you and a wink at your little girl. Won't be long now!

Benny has continued to stay in my prayers. My heart still breaks for him and what he has endured. Thank you for posting this awareness for everyone Tammy. His skin looks like it is healing nicely since the stitches have come out. I am still praying for a full recovery for sweet Benny - medically and emotionally. Please give him kisses for me.
