I. Am. Staying. Positive.
Must stay positive!
If you haven’t yet, you may want to start by reading my last vet update, which included pics of Rio’s surgical sites up until that point.
Let’s start with the RH (original site of spider bite wound and where he broke his splint bone which is what required surgery). We are still treating it with SSD and wrapping every day or every other on occasion.
So… the progress pic from 9/12 REALLY reminds me of one of the progress pics after his spider bite. IDK what it means (if anything, could just be part of the normal healing process). That bubbly look is what I am talking about:
Sure looks like this old photo from spider bite healing:
Am I right?!? Mildly interesting.
Now to the Left Hind. We started a new product on it last Thursday (PES Derm by Precision Joint Solution).
Yah… pretty positive that is turning into some lovely proud flesh. I have no comment on this other then we are trying our best and will continue to do whatever is necessary to treat it.
Should be starting daily laser treatments either Sunday or Monday, so we will see if that does anything. Honestly, unless you have some tried and true methods to help combat proud flesh- I am not really looking for advice at this point. I’m up to my ears in advice (lots of it REALLY good, and I really appreciate it!) but we can only try so many treatments at a time, so we are currently staying the course. I send Amazing Vet like daily updates and she is working just as hard as I am to get Rio where he needs to be. I am staying positive (if I keep saying it do you think it will work?) and trying to be patient. Good vibes always welcome!
Rio is happily back in the normal turnout rotation, so that really sets my mind at ease knowing he can take his time to heal and is no longer cooped up and stressed out in his stall.
