My 7 year old Pointer/Golden Retriever mix is 7 days post-surgery where she had a lump removed from her leg and another from her shoulder area. The incision on her leg came open two days post-op and she developed cellulitis, for which she was given antibiotics. The wound on her shoulder was deep, and the lump was located near her rib cage. A drain was put in that was removed 3 days ago. Until this morning, the wound continued to drain quite a bit of pinkish fluid. This morning it appeared that the wound had dried up. Now, I am noticing that there is swelling near the drain site. It is not hot, and it doesn’t cause my dog any pain when I touch it. I am wondering if this could be a seroma. Since she is on antibiotics and acting normally, I am wondering if she is OK to wait until the vet is back in the office tomorrow to have her checked out since today is a holiday. Thank you!
What is the best way to treat an open wound from a dog fight?
My husky was fixed close to 3 weeks ago. She had to wear her megaphone for all that time. They glued her wound, so it kept coming open at it is a jagged very sloppy incision. She played and snuggled and loved us and was onery and would get it off. It was a game to her cuz then we’d have to snuggle her and sneak it on her. Yesterday was the big day to take it off. I was so excited and she was a mamas girl. I took it off and was loving and rubbing her head and was gently talking her through it. I thought she’d attack me with kisses and lovvens. Quit thee opposite. She walked into her kennel, which is only ever used when we’re gone, and I don’t work. It’s only used when we’re all gone. If any of the teens stay home she don’t need to be in it. So she walks in there to lay down, and hasn’t come out since. She knows the words outside and would get all jumpy and excited, now her ears barely perk up. So I haven’t gotten her to go potty since yeasterday around 4pm. Even last night after I did my shot it’s me and her outside time while I smoke. She will go potty and then sit next to me while I chat on the phone petting her. She’s not even interested in “cookies.” Which she LOVES puppy cookies and treats. Should I be worried. I do notice she didn’t sleep that much when she had the cone, cuz it was uncomfortable and she always restles, but still slept with me and suddenly last night she didn’t. It worries me cuz she is such a mamas girl, that this uninterested demeanor has me super worried….I even have her crate in the living room. So she’s with me or at least see us all. Oh just so you can know her age, she will be 3 July 5th. The surgery was being spayed.
I took my 20 pound jack Russell to a two week training program. When I picked him up, the trainer told me that he sustained an injury to his chest after falling on a branch. He had a wound to his left lower chest which is now mostly healed however had a fluid pocket in close proximity on his right side of his chest. I am not a vet but I am a physician So I thought the best approach would be to aspirate the fluid. I have aspirated the fluid twice, Both times I got about 25 to 40 mL of zero serosanguinous fluid However the fluid re-accumulated both times shortly after. The fluid was nonpurulent, the dog is afebrile, eating and going to the bathroom normally, and the side of the seroma is not warm tender or red. I was just curious if I should leave it alone and not drain it anymore or if I need to take him to a vet to have a drain placed? Id prefer conservative management. please let me know your thoughts. I appreciate it thank you
So my cat is at the vet now. It’s been 4 days. I found her laying limp. Back hindleg swollen. I would guess she fell at some point through the night. The vet isn’t sure what happened xray showed no broken bones. She’s been on antibiotics and today (day 4) swelling has gone down but now the small wound is pussing. The vet says there is internal injury. What is going on with my kitty!?
My outdoor cat came in the house for a little while. I picked him and pus oozes everywhere. I noticed he has a wound on his chest. Now he has had two other abscesses on his back but never on his chest with he be okay if I clean he wound 2-3 times a day and put on antibiotic cream? He healed fine from the others ones fine.
I saw a street dog beaten up and it has a wound and maggots are also there.It didn’t ate for three days and now it’s not even drinking water and it is breathing so fast.
We had picked up two half bengal kittens for free a day after Christmas. They are adorable. However they were infested other fleas and their ears are dirty no mater how many times I clean them. I think they have ear mites.
I have a one year old tabby cat who we adopted from the vet. However one of the kittens has scratched him 4 times on the face.
His fur has gone where the scratch is and bald.
His scratch has completely healed. There is no bump or pus. They don’t hurt him when touched them as I have washed the wound and put Betadine on the wound.
How long until his hair grows back. My partner and I have decided to give the kittens to our vet hospital, were they can give the kittens the treatment they need.
Just again. How long till my cats hair grows back and what do I need to look out for?
