Northern Indiana Hand and Wrist

Aspen, the newest member of the Northern Indiana Hand & Wrist Center family, is a Shiba Inu / Shepard mix adopted by Practice Manager Jill Cozart and her family.  Aspen was at K9 Safe Harbor Rescue in Vermilion, Ohio and is currently stealing hearts in the South Bend area.
Like most puppies, Aspen has those sharp little puppy teeth that seem to catch a finger when her family is least expecting it. During one of these episodes, I was reminded of the sage advice to never, ever get between two fighting dogs.  Animal bites are a common injury seen in our practice with results ranging from infection to finger amputation.  Click below to read more information about animal bites from the American Society for Surgery of the Hand
