keep fingers crossed for my poor manny – he got bitten ( we think) by something early yesterday morning within an hour it was swollen on his side and he couldnt bear it to be touched………within 2 hours ( when vet sopened) it had more than tripled in size, vets gave him various jabs ( my antihistamine wasnt touching it!!) and he came home with antibiotics and hibiscrub – couldnt touch him to wash it yesterday but hes had it washed a couple times today to no avail, it looks awful, he was sick when he had the first lot of antibis this morning but has so far kept the second lot down – his sides a weeping ozzing mass of pus, to be honest im horrified , i was at a dog grooming show today and so my friend cared for him but unless a miracle happens overnight were be back at vets tomorrow as it needs more treatment poss a drain its that bad – im worried about him hes very quite and sleeping a lot 🙁June 11, 2012 at 1:51 pm #88819IzzieMember
Poor baby boy 🙁
How is he today Suz? :-*June 11, 2012 at 7:44 pm #88820
Picked him up from the vets about 3pm – hes got very bad eyes now puring gunk so got eye drops to help that, not sure if its connected or a coincidence….
the vets sedated him shaved all the hair off as it was just glued to his skin where it was oozing so much fluid! Its VERY sore, hence the sedation he wouldnt even let me do it 🙁 hes got cream plus antibiotics – the creams fun im having to pin him down to put it on hes so sore.
just got to see how he goes now……June 12, 2012 at 8:17 am #88821Diesel73Member

No Val, hed only been in the gardeN when it happened no adders in my garden were too much in the city.
He looks a lot better today – its all drying up and i can rub the cream on now without him jumping 20 foot in the air! it looks horrid but he is happier in himself and playing again – well he wants to not much he can do with a bucket on his head but he cant have that off yet!
