Last night Sweet pea came back from the dog sitter with an open wound-lump on her head. I bent down to say HELLO, got a whiff and knew without a doubt it was infected. I brought her to the vet this morning and 6 hours later she emerged minus some necrotic skin and the infected area with a big blue Elizabethan collar and five pink stitches. I'm beyond upset that the dog sitter didn't give me a call when she got hurt. I would have requested a vet visit if I knew how big of a gash she had. At least we could have avoided the infection. I know accidents happen. But this was too neglectful.
