Thanks,
Debbie

Harry is home from the vet. He had an abscess between his toes. :blink:
The vet drained it and gave him antibiotics. He said that Harry could have stepped on something to cause the problem, but he couldn't see anything because Harry wouldn't sit still. He said that he would normally lightly sedate a dog to have a better look, but Harry's liver makes sedation dangerous, so he did the best he could. The area has to continue to drain for a few days, and it shouldn't be covered, so it's pretty messy right now. I have to try and keep Harry from bothering it, too. I have a soft e-collar that I bought for Teddy, but it's way too big for Harry, so I guess I'll be making a trip to the pet store. (The vet only had bigger hard ones.) While we were there, the vet took blood samples for Harry's normal blood tests, too, since he's due soon, and I'll have the results by Wednesday at the latest... hoping for good news.

Thanks for all the good wishes.... I get soooo upset when something happens to Harry.

Hugs.
Debbie

Ouch. An abscess between his toes sounds very painful! No wonder poor Harry was limping. I hope he's and the mend now and his bloodwork results are good!

Gee, what an odd injury. :blink: I hope it gets better fast, so Harry can be running around again.
