Vet appointment for tomorrow is cancelled.
Walter tore his hind left leg open below the knee yesterday sometime before dinner. BO didn't notice because Walter came running up from the back of his pen to go inside for dinner, no limping, etc. This morning she realized it when she went to take him out and he wouldn't walk on it. She buted him and called me. Went out, and ya. It's not pretty. Called the vet out. She cleaned it and wrapped it. He's on penicillin and bute. Pretty bruised. The tendon is exposed, split open vertically. You can see the bone.
She wants to know how it is on Monday. She thought he was being pretty tender on it, and might want to x-ray it. She took a quick look at his knees- said the right front is a little but swollen, and will want to look at them at some point.
He's on stall rest for now.
My poor babes. I will be starting a new thread to follow his healing. He's wrapped, with some ointment that is kinda like furosone- I can't remember the name right now. And then a quilt & standing wrap over that. We have to clean and re-wrap daily. I will post a picture when I get home- can't from work.
