Oh my goodness, i didn't know this had happened so I am glad it surfaced again. The things you just never think about and assume the trained professionals would know better. I hope Benny recovered

Thanks girls. Margaret told me this old thread recirculated. It's been 2 years and you would never know anything happened to Benny. His hair grew back in great. He does have slight sensitivity at the burn site, but nothing that causes him pain. Glad that nightmare is behind us.

PS...it's too bad my photos in the original post don't show up anymore. I'm sorry! I am not sure how they got deleted. Probably something to do w/my photobucket account. They really showed how severe the situation was.

Thank You,
I was so shocked because I assumed my vet knew of this danger, guess that's why we shouldn't assume .
He's a good friend so I'll share this information with him.

Glad to know Benny recovered with minimal issues.
