Honestly, long term antibiotics helped the most. She was on 30ml Gentamicin 1xdaily and 30 ml Penicillin 2xdaily for 6 days, then we switched to SMZ tablets for 4 weeks after that.
Her initial injury came from a well placed kick to the hock. The infection caused the cellulitis and got into her joint. It also ate away at her bone some. So we had a severe onset of arthritis that we are now dealing with and manageing.
It was a LONG 2 months. Most cellulitis cases don't last that long.
Rumor still has some slight swelling, but that's not from the cellulitis or infection she had. Its from the arthritis. Overall, she is well.
Keep your head up. Its fairly easy to treat...
