Gustav – The Dog With an Embedded Collar and Tetanus
Gustav came into Fort Worth Animal Care and Control with an embedded collar and injuries to his neck. He developed tetanus which is causing his muscles to be rigid from the bacterial toxin. Even though his muscles can hardly move, he still wags his tail when he hears your voice! He’s got a lot of heart and he is fighting hard! The first photo below was taken before he was given diazepam to relax his muscles. He was unable to lay down and all of the muscles in his head and face were constricted to create this very uncomfortable expression. The second photo shows the injuries to his neck. You can donate here to help support Gustav’s recovery.
