That is looking so much better!

I am still amazed at hw fast it begins to have such a good effect.

Keep us posted on how it goes.

Day 54, Resolve Wound Day 30

We had a period of minimal progress with lots of leg swelling, so after talking to my vet we put her on penicillin and dexamethasone to see if it would come down at all. It has! Also her bandage came down during the day once while I was at work so was exposed to freezing cold all day and got pretty dry. It's still swollen, but way less than before, and some swelling is normal. Posting pictures taken today. I've been changing it every 2-3 days, vet said I could go longer but that's as long as the bandage will stay up. Good start to the new year!

day 69

Chugging along, here are some updated pictures of day 69. She's tolerating the bandage changes and cleanings so well, I know I would be getting crabby by now if it were me!

What are you doing now to reduce the proud flesh and encourage the wound edges to close?

Wound looks good but doesn't appear any smaller than before. I would have expected it now to be reducing in size as the skin closes up.
