Okay, so on Saturday my Dicer got hurt in a way that I am really surprised he was able to walk away from. If you want the full story on how he got hurt (and probably a few other details) I'll do it through PM. Just because there is a lot that comes into play and it would be a REALLY long post if I posted here. And this is a wound progression thread not a rant thread.
I just want to know if I did what was right. If I should have done something different(a few things I know I should've). If itfs progressing nicely. And any suggestions anyone may have about this. Ifm still pretty worked up about it, more-so about the whole situation with which it happened and what's been surrounding it than the fact that he is hurt but that's a behind the scenes story.
Day 1 before being washed:
Day 1 after being washed with Viodine.
After I washed it with Viodine I slathered it with Furazone and wrapped it with a pad and vet wrap lightly. Not to compress just to cover it so it wouldnft get dirty. He also received a Tetanus shot because he was hurt on something metal. (t-post)
On the night of day 1 I went out to check it, hose it, and put more furazone on it and it looked nice and pink. Also, night of day 1 the area was swelled and he was limping a bit.
On day 2 it was apparently packed with triple antibiotic and wonder dust and he was given a shot of Penn C. No wrapping. Not my doing but that is part of the long story.
Day 3 swelling:
Day 3 after being washed with Viodine. I have no clue what the brown stuff is in the wound?
After, I again slathered it with furazone and put swat around it. Still swollen, short strided at the walk, off at the trot.
Day 4 (today) washed it with viodine to get the gunk off of it. Cold hosed it.
After I slathered it with silvadine(Sp?) and put swat around it. Still swollen a bit. Fine at the walk. Still a bit off at the trot.
- He has not been separated from the large field and put in the smaller field even though I wanted him to be. So he's free to run around and hurt himself even more. (Not my doing again that part comes along with the PM)
How does it look? Does it look like it's healing properly? Should I do something different? Keep doing what I'm doing?
