Flo is being referred...

Post by cheryl'n'bruce'flo on Thu May 30, 2013 5:38 pm

to Richard Saunders for advice. Her left foot has a chunk of dead skin right over her hock joint and the fur has not grown back properly. The vet thinks we need to relieve the pressure on the joint but doesn't know how to do it without all the shenanigans of last time's bandages which caused more problems. She is back on the Septrin and metacam as well. Sad

Oh no Sad

I did wonder how Flo's hocks were and I assumed they were doing well since we hadn't heard otherwise. I'm sorry this isn't the case...

I have all my fingers crossed and am sending lots of vibes for Flo that Richard Saunders can do something for her Hugs

Is it just dead skin and not broken skin? Does it seem to be bothering her?

It is a hard nub of dead skin right over the joint that looks a bit like an ulcer. It doesn't appear to bother her but the vet is concerned that this foot is not recovering like the other has and that Flo runs the risk of tendon damage.

She's fine really. She has had a lot of sock free time in the garden due to the good weather.

I think the vet is far more worried about the whole situation than me. She has been binkying around the garden and generally enjoying herself. As long as that is the case I am not too worried.

Well it turns out the vet asked for lots of opinions and the first reply was (drumroll) - none other than John Chitty. cheers

Flo has had her metcam dose increased and has some manuka honey for the foot. So extra glue for the socks! Laughing
