Yeah, I was really concerned since he told me to wait some days to see how it would heal since her last tail vertebra is exposed.
I'm living abroad and there's a holliday coming in friday(so it makes a little bit harder to find a vet for surgery right away), I'm already using topic antisseptic and burn meds, antibiotics and anti inflammatory. Could I wait for the beginning of next week?
I also covered it in some gauze and bandage. My lab didn't try to lick or chew on it either.
She hallucinates really bad when going under sedation, and the timing of this accident...that sucks, i fell bad for her :/
It was not what I would like to hear, but I was looking for a confirmation, and I've got to agree with you.
Thank you Dr. Andy,
Hello, thanks for replying. Well, the vet and I agreed to wait a little bit to see if any granulation tissue would turn viable some healing in the area. Thus, if not, she'd have to go under surgery.
Shes not in pain, the wound doesn't have any signs of infection or edema and is vascularized at some extent. The bone is exposed (and that's why I was/am worried that cicatricial tissue won't cover it up)
I'm cleaning it up 2x per day with clorexidine, washing it up with some physiologic saline and covering it up in antisseptic mixed with sugar and a phytoterapic med too.Covering it in gauze and elastic tape.
He told me that it would take more than a month to heal, if even so...so it turns greater the chance of infection, thus I think, and prefer that she'd go under surgery by the end of this week. What are your thoughts about the clinical treatment? Not viable?
