Indy got his bandage changed again today and his owie looks really good -- it's even smaller and the spot that the vets were worried about seems to be closing by itself. Fingers crossed that no surgery will be needed!
His bandage is much smaller now, too. It goes from the top of his paw to about 2 inches below his elbow!
His dew claw is a bit of a problem. The swollen spot under his claw has expanded because it's no longer compressed by the bandaging. When he puts full weight on that paw, his dew claw cuts into the swollen spot. So, I filed his claw down as much as possible, and put a small bandage over the swollen spot to stop the claw from cutting in. *sigh* With luck this will resolve on its own.
Indy also had his preliminary chest xrays done today and they're all clear! He had a panic attack on the xray table, so Dr Blabs had me come into the xray room to help calm him down. Indy HATES being on his back and was doing his famous "dying flopping fish" impression. Some big vicious pit bull, huh?
Never make someone a priority in your life when that someone treats you like an option.
