Is This Healing Okay? (graphic)
Last Saturday Cinny cut his foot just above the coronet and a little bit through it. I've been following the vet's orders and rebandaging it every two days. He ended his penicillin shots a day ago. It was looking really good albeit a little on the stinky side, but today I'm not sure it looks like it's healing right. I know he pulled the stitches and that is part of the problem. The vet did say to expect him to pull the stitches.
I have been taking his temperature every day just so I can keep tabs on signs of infection and it was a steady 99 until yesterday when it raised to just above 100. Today it did go back down to 99 so I am not too worried and yet...it just doesn't seem to look "right" to me.
