Yesterday the lump on Mr Reilly's foot swelled up like crazy pushing through the top of his foot and split open. It wasn't an abscess - just clear liquid came out and not very much but it has left a big opening and the whole area is very red and sore looking and it is bleeding a bit...... so Mr Reilly is at the vets for the day for them to clean it up and see what they can do. We are thinking he will need to go see the Veterinary Orthopedic Surgeon sooner than his appointment in two weeks but at the moment we just have to wait and see what his dogtor finds. Please send my special boy some power of the paw if you can. The good news is Mr Denny's medication change has helped him a little and he is not limping so bad. We just seem to be going through a bad patch with feet and legs at the moment.
