Wow Tiff! He is looking really good. It really doesn't look all that bad. And the swelling has really come down. I'm sure he's feeling better though.

He sure is a lucky boy to have found you!

Appy thanks so much! He really is looking alot better! The swelling has gone down alot and makes him look so much better!

I never even thought about proud flesh before, I was to focused on getting it healed up to worry abou that... :roll: Now that is my major worry.

The only thing we've ever been given by our vet for proud flesh is "Wonder Dust" and I would hate to use that on his face.

Yeah, I wouldn't use wonder dust either--it will slow healing and doesn't make it heal any better. It just destroys tissues,, both proud flesh and normal tissues. A topical cream with an antibiotic and steroid both will prevent infection while triggering the body to heal normally rather than producing proud flesh so that you stop the problem rather than deal with it after it occurs. You will most likely have to get something from your vet as they are prescription ointments. Specific names are Panalog, Animax, Derma 4, Derma-vet.

Thanks so much for those names. Can those ointments be used with Derma Gel?
    05-15-2008, 03:18 PM
They could, but there would be no reason to continue with the derma-gel because you would already be treating for infection.

Okay thanks very much! I will talk to my vet about that right away!

He does look tons better.
Hopefully by next week it'll be completely healed up.
Give the poor man a big hug and kiss for me. :)

Of course I will! You should be down here taking care of it for me! You know how I am with wounds... **Faints** LOL

I'm glad he's doing better!!! Remember to give him lots of hugs, kisses and treats! Then he'll look forward to seeing you even if you're going to bother him

There is improvement there. Once the swelling goes down you will know more. Keep on with the great work your doing and let us know how he gets on. :)
