Best of luck and healing vibes and hugs and wheeks! This has gone on a fair while though so maybe its time to ask for more meds like the local anaesthetic spray, or see if there's a vet closer who might review and spray anaesthetic then do a proper wound clean and check while its numb more regularly? We are super lucky our vet is round the corner, I think its definitely helped with Tallulah on days when I'vw been like... should I pick that scab off and clean under it? Etc.I'm thinking of asking Simon when we see him in the next couple of weeks @PigglePuggle but the skin's still so tight on that side don't know if it might make it worse with the 'ripping'. It's prob why it keeps doing it now, along with him being a pain!
An eye patch would be brilliant but he really wouldn't leave it alone, well I'm guessing not if he can't even leave the wound that must be sore! Stubborn little man!
I'll have to see if I can get some spray as definitely would be helpful with him. Another question for Simon!
I've purposely not picked off the bits around the wound in the hope the skin might attach together again, looking smaller as all stuck together so may leave it like that tonight and just give it a good clean in the morning.
Might help?! Or not, I'm going to try anything as quite deflated again today after all the progress we'd had!
But your vet sounds like the best so it would be a difficult decision... and an eye removal is much more complicated than an abscess... and there's the "is there enough skin" issue with stitching... we were told with Tallulah's neck hole to put it off as long as possible as there was exactly 1 more op's worth of skin left then there wouldnt be enough left to try again... poor pirate boy and poor you! Really hope things start getting better again because his wound looked great before today x
