BHRR's Maverick's X-Rays under sedation from last night. Nothing is broken. The fact that he may have pawed at the crate as, he almost always does prior to going into to eat, we sheer coincidence. There is absolutely no trauma to be found on the x-rays. The swelling also did not occur to the next afternoon. It was so sudden.
The Emerge Vet feels 1) Plate/Screw rejection or 2) Cancer
He also said that he could be 'maybe' missing a cracked screw and if the inflammation does not dissipate within the next 3 weeks discuss with BHRR's Mav's ortho specialist Dr. Philibert.
He added Clavamox 375 mg BID to his med protocol in addition to continuing to use the Deramaxx 100 mg.
We discussed bw and, I will bring BHRR's Mav to KAH later today for the bw (possible UA if the Vet also believes) and, for my own comfort, send off the x-rays to Dr. Philibert to review as, I do not want to wait three weeks. *IF* this is Cancer or a plate/screw rejection, NO way am I waiting.
His weight was 54.3 KGs(119.46 pounds). Still quite lean and still working to put on the weight! Fever was around 40 degrees. He is clearly fighting off some infection and, the emerge Vet is worried that if he is on Deramaxx and, that this leg looks this bad…. 🙁 Plus, that he would have such a high fever while on the Deramaxx.
