Sore hock advice needed please

Post by jolovesbunnies on Thu Jan 05, 2017 9:38 am

Hello all

I wonder if anyone can help me with a problem. I have noticed that on Holly's hind legs there are two very small bald patches. She seems to be getting around OK and it is able to wash herself easily but I just wondered if anyone else had any experience of this and how they solved the problem. Putting socks on is completely out f the question, she would have a fit. Is there any cream that we can perhaps put on them? As I have said they are very small but I am worried about them. Thank you ladies.

Hugs

Is the skin underneath red and inflamed?
If not I'd leave it be but keep an eye on it. Is she lying on hard flooring? Would she like/accept a padded bed to lie on? And is she errr... a tad on the plump side? If so maybe fewer treats!

Sorry doll I've never dealt with sore hocks before, but no harm in phoning vets asking for advice. Maybe limit her to carpeted areas just now( just taking guesses of your house flooring)

Thank you so much ladies. We do have hard floor where only a little is covered but she has her own settee to sit on and she usually uses that. Either that or my bed. The is a carpeted area n the sitting room where we sit and she often sits there too so she has plenty of comfy spots. It isn't inflamed Woodwench love but we are keeping an eye on it. Thanks Gemma hunni, we will probably take her to the vet to get it checked out. He will probably give us some cream but putting it on and getting it to stay on is going to be fun! Yes I have to admit sweetie, she is a little plump at the moment so smaller portions all round now I think.

If you take her to the vet ask them to check for arthritis. If she as a touch of that it may make her lie differently and put pressure on the hocks.

Cheryl tried various things with Flo. Maybe put "hocks" into the search box and see if it pulls up her threads? Smile

Thank you my darlings, I will certainly do that. They don't look sore at all, just like normal skin colour but I am keeping a very close eye on them even though she is moving around very well now. Many thanks for your kind advice. Thumbs Up

Jo if the skin is intact not to worry to much. What do you use for litter trays?
If skin is broken and sore.metanium creme. People say duos creme but it stings. Metanium doesn't.
Just make sure litter tray isnt wet. Feel a fool telling you that but hey.

Sorry this post went before I had finished.
When Dillon had his sore hocks I used to get a special straw based litter for him from hay expert called tiny friends farm bedding.
Not cheap but very good. His cleared within 2 month. And it was bad red inflamed and nasty. So maybe this would be something to help.

Thanks CB hunni, Holly has two hay beds which sue uses so I don't use anything litter based. They are both changed daily. She still has the patches on her little feet but they don't look sore, which is wonderful. I know how quickly that can change however so I am keeping a close eye. Thanks for the Tiny Friends bedding tip, I will bear it in mind. Very Happy
