Get Pet Questions Answered by Pet Experts
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
Can you share pictures and video of your concern?Is she on any medication at this time?
Poor girl. Has she been in bandages up to this point? Can you share a video of how she walks, I'd like to get an idea for how these areas have become so raw.There is an attachment function on the page that should allow you to post pictures and video. You can also use websites like tinypic.com and youtube.com to upload pictures and video respectively. Once this is done, a set of links will appear. You can then post the link back and I can access them.
Send a video along when you are able. There's no time limit on our discussion.Has any type of laser therapy been considered for the calloused areas?While waiting for the video, I am going to do some research for you. It is sounds like she is fully able to use both rear legs but in a hopping fashion, is this correct?
I think that's one good place to start but may not be the entire solution. No doubt, it's offered great progress for wounds as substantial and worse than her own. And it absolutely cannot hurt anything.
After seeing the video, if I can't find the right place I will get you in contact with someone who can help you. Even if you have to go with a prosthesis company, many of them do custom work for handicapped pets. Her situation is likely just going to take some finesse due to her limitations AND her ability to be active. Give her assistance without hindering her abilities, as it were :)
Checking in, JACustomer. Any luck with the video?
Excellent. Keep me posted if you need more help.
