Speedy’s Road to recovery: Warning it’s not Pretty

Speedy went back to the Vets today and had his dressing removed and flushed out. The Nurse said that it looks like there was still some necrotic skin on the edge of the hole they cut out and there was some puss which she flushed out. she gave me instructions to keep flushing it out daily and keep it clean as possible and leave it to drain out naturally and if there are any problems to get in touch.

Now if you’re squeamish the I apologize now but I want to show and keep an accurate record of where we are with Speedy’s paw and the healing process. So this is how it looks today…

It’s not pretty is it? Looks pretty nasty but it is nowhere near as swollen as it was and I am sure it is very sore give how Speedy lifts his paw up but it can’t be as painful…I hope it’s not but pain wise Speedy in on his meloxicam and CBD oil so we can’t give him more than that.

Tomorrow I’ll post the changes to his bedding to minimize anything getting in to the wound. Thank you for all the lovely messages, I read them out to Speedy each day and appreciates every single one.

  1. Goodness that is quite the wound. Dad, being a RN, says that it looks good. You want that redness as that shows increased blood flow to the wound area which = healing. May be more puss but that is just normal recovery unless there is colors in it and it stinks. Then check for the right antibiotic as some bugs are just plain different. Purrs Speedy
