Tejony’s wound is mostly healing well. There’s a spot in the middle though that won’t close up, and it’s still oozing a lot of fluid. The fluid is mostly clear, sometimes times 3 with a little blood, and has no odor. But after 2 weeks it shouldn’t still be draining, so he’s on a second course of antibiotics.
I’m hoping it’ll stop draining and start closing up in the center by the time he sees the vet again this weekend but I dunno.
Other than that though, he’s eating, drinking, wants to run and play, and is basically his normal sweet self.
Tonight Tejony was out back, chasing rabbits. He was having a great time. It’s one of his favorite activities.
Then he ran full tilt into one of these.
This resulted in an 8″ gash behind his front leg through all the skin and down to the muscle. I could have put both my hands through it.
Obviously his next action was to get loaded into the backseat of my mom’s truck and off to the emergency vet. He was there until almost midnight, but they got him patched up with a lot of stitches, iv fluids, and meds.
When he got home, my mom and I helped him onto my bed and I put a shirt on him.
I’m pretty sure my mom will be taking tomorrow off work, and I be trying to sleep while kinda keeping an eye on my poor boy.
It was a total freak accident. Nobody would have seen this coming. A literal almost thousand dollar accident. Ugh.
