Speedy’s Recovery Update: Up and down and then up again

So just when we thought this was it, no more puss pockets and down we go on that road to another puss pocket to empty that was in the first half of last week. When I found it I cleaned it and squeezed out the puss 3 times that day and then just little bit each day for a couple of days.

It’s been 3 days since I last had to squeeze out any puss and this morning it was still clear, no puss! And some fur is starting to grow back…..

Please let this be the last time I have to put Speedy through that cause even though he is a brave boy and a good boy, he’s starting to get fed up with me poking and prodding his paw….who could blame him


Speedy’s Road to recovery: Light at the end of the Tunnel

 So I was meant to write this for you yesterday but it was a weird day, good for Speedy but not so much for us. I’m not going to go in to that here today as this is all about Speedy. After having a little set back in the week where part of his abscess refilled and me having to drain it a couple of times we now can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

So we were able to give Speedy a bit of a treat to make him feel better about his ordeal with his foot….

  As you can see Speedy is using his foot properly now so we picked this Special spot that had no gorse bushes and kept him to the grassy paths. Now for the Update on his Paw….

As you can see the hole has shrunk to almost nothing with just a small scab and the swelling has almost gone too. It’s still a bit tender to touch but it feels more or less like his other paw. We just have to be very careful now so it can continue to heal. And as Speedy was looking so good we took him back to the special place for another treat….

Speedy will probably get another treat today and tomorrow to make the most of the dry weather as Wednesday we are back to wet and windy weather for the rest of the week.
Thank you for all your POTP for Speedy and all the nice messages You’re all amazing!
