Lenny’s face had been healing well but after last Friday’s concern over a swelling just above the last abscess site, just below his right eye, we decided to put him on antibiotics again.
It seemed to die down over the weekend really well, no crud or anything, but this morning we have yucky stuff again 🙁
I have a definite feeling that the tooth is rotten to the core (it is the opposite side to the last tooth extraction) and if things aren’t careful we are going to have to put him under again and do another extraction which is something we really do not want to do.
The other thing which is worrying me is that the skin around the area we are having to regularly clean is so very thin.
I wonder if there is a miracle out there for my little man x
Well I have been a little busy lately as the OH is in the UK for a week (he’s now a granddad!), and I’ve been trying to get all of those jobs done that I can never get done “when there’s a man in the house”.
Roddy likes to help me with the cleaning too, not!
The OH also jokes that whenever he goes out of the house for more than a day he comes back and the furniture has moved!
We’ve all been going out for our regular walks and I’ve decided this New Year that I would try to find different routes for us as we usually go “up and down” or “round and round”, so the dogs are getting some new sniffs which is great.
Lenny is doing fine though he woke up Wednesday morning with a yucky eye so off to see Uncle Edy he went.
He has an ulcer on his eye so we have eye drops for him which he HATES, but as they usually come with some food attached to them he is growing to like them.
We have to go back and see the vet again in a few days’ time to check if it is healing okay.
I do think that Lenny’s lump has grown a little as he now has a bald patch on the top of his head too so I’m keeping a close eye on him.
No more lumps and bumps please Lenny.
Lenny has also broken his tail tip apparently, probably from wagging his tail so hard!
He obviously didn’t feel it though as there is very little circulation down there. What’s that saying… no sense no feeling 🙂 x x x
