BHRR's Maverick was at Kana(Kanata AH) today for a recheck, 7 days post-op as, I wanted him looked over before XMAS.
I could have removed the bandages five days post-op or kept the bandage on for the 14 days, yet, really wanted to keep the bandages on for a wee bit longer and, yet, have it looked sooner than 14 days.
He had put on a smidge of the almost 24 pounds he had lost and, from the moment we walked into KAH, he was surrounded by so many friendly caring faces!
Bruce and Margaret were there when I arrived, not to mention some of the best folks I work with!
Throughout the day, he had more loving visitors! Caren, Wendi & Cliff plus Lynn & Al!
All of these kind folks have given him such a good experience and, for a dog that has had so many not so pleasant vet hospital experiences, it was invaluable what these sweet people did for him today! Thank you!!!
The second culture(this one post-plate removal) came back without any growth yet, we are aware that having been on antibiotics, that this could affect his results.
Below is a photo of his leg after the bandages came off and, it was cleaned up.
While it is certainly better than it once looked, his Vet (all of us actually) were hoping/wishing that it would have looked better than it did.
Pictures will be sent to his ortho specialist to review.
Discussion was held in respect to doing another culture and, at this time, we will hold off.
An impression smear was done and, there are signs of eastie beasties for sure…..
We shall carry on with the Baytril and Deramaxx and, see what Dr. Philibert says and, keep monitoring the leg…..
Poor brave BHRR's Maverick……
