Justice update – December 28

While Justice appears to be doing worse, this is all part of his healing process.  He required a third surgery December 28 to remove damaged tissue in and around his mouth and jaw, and to suture the healthy tissue together. This setback was expected as his mouth continues to heal, and it’s likely that he will require at least one more surgery to repair the damage done to his mouth by the tightly wrapped electrical tape (in addition to a future surgery for his pre-existing dental issues). Surgery is risky for Justice due to his heartworm infection, but is necessary to address the trauma he suffered. The risks are minimized by monitoring him closely while he’s under anesthesia.  Despite the challenges he had today, he remains active and playful and eating well.
