    Default Finn and his vet visit

    Well, my little guy has a badly infected tail. The doc said he was such a trooper, allowing her to clean the area and even clip some of the hair, but said it looked pretty bad and must really be irritating/painful for him. All these weeks I've been using duoxo pads and applying some topical antibiotic ointment, but he would continue to "chase" his tail...which frustrated me further and now I feel super guilty for not taking it more seriously.
    He was really suffering and I was just thinking of myself. So, kicking myself for not getting that tail looked at sooner. He was given a shot of prednisone, a course of oral prednisone as well as some oral antibiotics.

    As far as the prolapsed urethra goes, the doc tried to push it back inside, and inserted a catheter to aid with that. She took the catheter out and said to just monitor in the next few days. I'm hoping it won't come out again and the bleeding will stop. This morning there was a huge blood from where he was sleeping.

    Hopefully, surgery won't be needed.

    You guys have been really supportive and I appreciate all you guys very much! Finn says thank you too.

    As much as we watch over these babies, sometimes we just miss things, I have a BAD tendency to blame everything on allergies, so much so that Vegas had a staff infection for a week before I took him in because the Benadryl wasent helping With all that steroid in Finn, I bet by tomorrow you will see a huge difference.

He must be feel a whole lot better now that's for sure, I hope he can rest and stay calm for awhile. Buster and us pray and hope he heals quickly and all is ok from here on out. Hugs to you and Finn and Tate.

    Awwww Henny... You can't take the blame for this! Sadly, we can't see everything...and the important thing is..you found it and are fixing it for him. And you DO know that even Vets critters get sick....don't you? I'm hoping and hoping no surgery is needed...

    Oh Henny, I'm so sorry... Please don't blame yourself, you are a great bully momma!!! I can't tell you how many time I have rushed mine in for something minor, and then something simple turns out to be serious?!! Hopefully Finn will be feeling better soon, and I'm praying that he won't need any surgery!!!

    for Finn! And like everyone else I agree, you are a great mama to those boys. Kids will be kids and they sometimes fool us. Especially when they can't tell us something hurts. You got him the care he needs now, and that's the most important thing!

    Well, Mr. Bruce (hehe), he's doing a-o-kay...he's still asleep and it's already close to 7:30am here. That's rare for him and Tate. I think it's b/c mommy slept in today too. I usually wake up at 2:30 or 3am, and they'll wake up at around 5am b/c of me. Since i've been taking better care of myself I've been sleeping more soundly and for a longer period of time. Funny how our own health affects/influences our pets so much. They sense I'm more relaxed and they in turn become that way too. Finn is on prednisone AND an antibiotic so i'm trying to figure out how to hide those pills in his food...he's very suspicious and sniffs everything i give him before he'll put it in his mouth. I've found that rice pudding is a good pill "vehicle" as is ice cream!

    (sorry for the long-winded answer to your question)!

    ps: no blood noticed from his peepee so i'm hoping that will be the case from now on.
