- And got the T-shirt
I'd be very unhappy with a vet that had to do three procedures to get rid of an abscess.
Just hope this is the final surgery
I'm also asking for a different AB. Clearly Orbax hasnt done it's job.
Stocked up on saline....hibiclens....qtips...gloves...more dish towels to wrap him. Wed I'll sanitize and divide the cage again.
After all its your pig.. There is AB for bone infections I ve read it on this forum..and you can always risk and try. I bet people here Will know how to help you.
Ringo Will be 15 in december and so what, which is more than is avarage age for border collie..i dont take thoose kind of answers, but his vets are very aware of that and they told me as long as he can walk on his own and he aint ill.. he can live.. as long as he is having Will power and assistence.. and meds helps him there is no problem.
Wish Spencer the best..:)
They could try another surgery and scrape the bone but the prognosis of being successful is 5% He'll be on Orbax and Metacam until he either loses 200g or can no longer eat. Then they suggested to have to put him to sleep. They're shocked that he presents as being perfectly healthy and gaining weight. He's running, playing, popcorning and eating.
If there were any options believe me I'd pay anything for them. He is happy and munching away on hay. I can't take that away from him. He'll let me know when he's ready.
