It was a very close call for Chester

It seems cats aren’t the only animals with multiple lives, after a year-old pup outwitted death by just a millimeter.

Chester, the Hungarian Vizsla, was out walking in the park when he was impaled by a stick that just missed his heart.

The lucky dog ​​was left badly injured when he fell into the undergrowth at a park in Bishop Auckland, County Durham.

Owner Bryony Coulthard found her beloved dog covered in blood and collapsed in the bushes, then took him to a vet where he underwent emergency surgery.

Vets at Wear Referrals in Bradbury found the cane had punctured Chester’s ribs and lungs – but luckily stopped just 1mm from his heart.

Chester made a full recovery from the freak accident and is now back home with his loving owners.

Bryony said: “My partner David was taking him for a walk and Chester was romping in the woods.

“David called him but Chester, unusually, didn’t come back and was found crouching in the undergrowth with blood on his stomach, although we couldn’t see anything else.

“It wasn’t until we took Chester to Wear Referrals that we were told he was seriously ill and how disastrous his accident could have been.

“It was amazing. The stick had entered through that skin, ricocheted off his ribs, breaking some of them, then entered his lung cavity and punctured one of his lung lobes.

“The rag had to be removed, but the most frightening thing was that the stick had entered through his lungs and pierced the sac around his heart.

“They said the stick was only 1mm from piercing his heart. I was just stunned by the news and everyone at Wear said Chester was such a lucky guy.

“We’ve just given the all clear for Chester to get back to normal and he’s doing really well, jumping around again and burning off all his energy.”

Vets from Linnaeus-owned Wear Referrals were able to save the dog’s life after performing emergency surgery to repair his wounds.

Soft tissue specialist Anna Cronin said: “When Chester arrived, a team effort was undertaken by our specialist nursing team, anesthetists and surgeons to immediately further stabilize him.

“He had two chest tubes placed to combat an accumulation of air in his chest cavity.

“He was then sent for a CT scan which identified a stick in the thorax (chest), most likely from the bushes Chester ran through earlier in the day.

“He underwent surgery to examine his chest cavity, which revealed that one of his lung lobes had been punctured and had to be removed.

“The stick had also managed to make a hole in the sac around the heart and was only a fraction away from perforating the heart.







Bryony and David were incredibly grateful

“However, Chester responded well to the surgery and was discharged home four days later to continue his recovery with his family.”

Chester required absolute rest for the first six weeks after his surgery and has since slowly returned to his normal daily routine.

Bryony added: “We are so grateful to Anna and the amazing team at Wear. They were absolutely wonderful, giving us regular updates and guiding us every step of the way.

“We would recommend them a million percent as they were so lovely to Chester and treated him like one of their own while always giving us reassurance and support.

“We couldn’t be more grateful.”
