She is the 3 month old Rottie Baby that was electrocuted.
She has severe oral burns to her mouth, gums and lips. She had a lot of necrotic tissue that was removed and continues to be removed. She had her fourth round of sedation and necrotic tissue removal on Friday.
She is back on Thursday for her next recheck.
Behind her back molars and both sides of her mouth were very ulcerated. The right side of her mouth is the area that is still causing most of the concern at this time as it is not healing as well as the rest of her mouth. Though, now she rarely has any bloody drool/saliva plus the putrid smell is almost all gone!
Her pain was so extreme that she could not eat and she also became dehydrated. She is eating and drinking almost like a pro now! She has had to adjust how she eats just a bit for her tongue is still slightly swollen and due to the damage caused.
She had received no prior Vet care and a fecal test diagnosed her with roundworms plus exposure to Giarrdia. She is being proactively/
She remains on Metacam, Gabapentin as well as Clavaseptin plus her mouth is rinsed out twice daily with DentaChlor.
I had been told that she may have permanent nerve/tissue damage yet nothing that would be of any major concern and she is gorgeous regardless of how she looks!
I have also recently been told that her teeth may be also affected yet as her baby teeth come out, and as her adult teeth come, they shall be monitored.
Her swelling on her face has also greatly reduced too!
He tongue still sticks out as it is too big for her wee mouth yet we also have begun to believe that due to some nerve/tissue damage, her little tongue will always stick out a small bit. It just makes her look all that much more adorable.
When I had picked her up from the Alta Vista Emergency, I did note that she was licking at her vulva.
Two Vets examined her at KAH and it is not that her vulva is just ‘hooded’, it is not quite conformationally where it should be placed and it is very ‘tight’ into the folds. She had clear irritation and you can tell it pained her to urinate.
As she develops, it is believed that some of her issues will resolve and her Vet also thought that perhaps she had some puppy vaginitis prior to us getting her and with being on the antibiotics, it will help resolve some of her irritation.
When the Vet would touch this area to examine it, sedated or not, she would react as she was in quite the level of discomfort.
She wears a cone when unsupervised, we spray the area with cortavance and one of the Vets at KAH recommended using some vaseline in the area to provide a protective layer.
If she requires a vulvoplasty, we will ensure that it is done.
She really could use your love plus support!
Donations can be made direct to Kanata Animal Hospital 613-836-2848 as when she was released from the care of the wonderful Alta Vista’s Emergency, she went to KAH for her Urgent Care and will remain with them for all of her proactive/preventative care too.
