Boxer was found April 15th in a ditch, covered in mud, suffering from open bite wounds from a dog attack. He arrived in Saskatoon April 16th and is being cared for by the team at U of S – WCVM – Small Animal Clinic.


Boxer has been released from the hospital and is off to his foster home to recover. He had 4 wounds of note, the largest on his head has 5 stitches, a wound on the other side has 1 stitch, and 2 punctures on his chest are not very deep so they’ve been left to heal on their own.

Update: Boxer went for a follow up vet visit on April 22nd. Upon examination they discovered fluid built up in his chest wounds, they felt it would be best to keep Boxer overnight so they could sedate him to further examine those wounds. He was discharged back into his foster families care on the 23rd after the team at Erindale Animal Hospital placed 3 drains into these wounds. He will need further follow up in 4 days.

He has a ways to go before he’ll be up for adoption.
