Does my dog need surgery to heal skin back to muscle?

My dog was bit by my sister's dog on the neck. We've kept it clean, shaved, and infection free. The vet said her skin came away from her muscle. Is there an easier way than surgery to fix this?

    Not that I am aware of. This is common with torn ACL's. Just like a human operation, there is no harm in going to another vet and getting a 2nd opinion, especially if you are unsure. The dog would probably have to wear some kind of neck collar restricting movement for at least a month after the operation to ensure proper healing. Hopefully your sis will pay for half? ^_^ Good luck!
