Well thankfully her antibiotics started to really take effect today, she was walking with hardly any limp at all (HOORAAYY!!)
All three of them got loaded up today to be shipped back to MI, where I'm moving back to so it was great to know that she was better than the day before.
Thankfully she stands with her foot in a bucket for soaking, but since the boot didn't fit her right (a waste of $53) I used a plastic bedding bag and duct tape to seal it and hold it on. My vet recommended using Banixx to treat the absess rather than epsom salt, but had me clean it with the epsom salt before applying the banixx. To keep the topical treatment on the hole I soaked a sponge in the Banixx and set it over the hole before wrapping it.
Seems to have worked. Poor girl. I won't get to see her and baby her til Monday night, only daily phone calls to check on her till then =/ I miss them.
