arrrrggghhh ...

Poor Sunny and poor Sing are having a SORE moment! I have noticed Sunny kept licking her dew claw last week, so I thought I bath that with warm salty water, twice a day, that probably made it more tasty for her so she licked even more. The dew claw is looking very bad this week. I can't wait no longer so we off to see the vet yesterday. Kevin thought there must be a foreign object hat has somehow upset the dew claw, so usual prescription, anti-inflammatory jab follow by anti-biotic/anti-inflammatory tablets and some Loxicom. Sunny is a happy bunny, she happily ate her tablet without any fuss! I didn't wrap the tablet in a piece of meat, just plain tablet. I wish all the dogs are just like her. Easy!

Sunny's sore dew claw


Then, this morning, I woke up to find Sing's paw has doubled up in size overnight! It was angrily sore and red! Vet we go again! Kevin must be so happy to see me two days in a row!! He thought Sing's paw is more likely got grass seed stuck in it but we couldn't find anything. When Kevin tried to press his pad, there was some puss shooting out, not looking very good at all. Again, anti-inflammatory jab, anti-biotic/anti-inflammatory tablets and Loxicom for two weeks. Kevin is more worried about Sing than Sunny as his doesn't look good at all, he worried that there are some grass seed left inside that may need surgery on the tissue. Let's hope his pad getting better in the next 7-10 days!

Sing is constantly licking his paw!

Hi Lian...there is definately a grass seed there or some foreign object as that is exactly how hooch paw looked when he had a grass seed...also having puss means there could b a grass seed or something causing the irritation...hope it gets better soon xx

Sunny's dew claw looks terrible but then I saw Sing's paw and that looks worse! Poor dogs! Hopefully the antibiotics will take care of both problems!
