    Oh no!! thinking of you guys and sweet Sherman. Wishing for the very best outcome @Jonel. I'm so sorry this is happening but let's hope and pray he will be fully healed soon.

    Just infuriating, when poor lil Sherman is finally recovering properly, if
    the Vet & Hospital doesn't offer major discounting of bill, I'd insist on it!
    Will be praying they do the right & ethical thing by y'all and continuing to
    pray for sweet baby boy. Just so very sorry this is happening Please
    try to stay positive and get pope rest when possible, I know it's difficult to
    do while worried & upset...you have a right to be! Huge hugs 'n kisses <3

    RIP beloved boy.

    Sherman is finishing up his last but of the antibiotics that could eliminate the E. Coli. We take him back to Penn this afternoon. He is very very fatigued so now I am concerned about side effects. We have been paying a Vet Tech to come over twice a day to do Sherman's injections. His tail area looks like it's healing well but impossible to know what's going on inside. He is still not the Sherman we know and hope in a few days that his old personality returns. This has been a nightmare. Still have the $7000 plus bill to fight. If things don't get better soon, I'm going to need to be medicated.

    I'm curious to find out if any of you have exprerienced your dog having constant diarrhea after the surgery? When I was younger (40 years ago), my mom's dog's tail amputation was horrible so I would never even think to have Dozer's tail done. However, listening to you all makes me think twice as Dozer has horrible itching and I am constantly (4X a day, at least) cleaning under his tail. It is really tight and most people think he doesn't even have a tail. Any thoughts?

    I am so sorry to hear that. It is so hard to watch our babies suffer. I will be praying for a quick recovery. Hang in there.

    OMG.Y Ou and poor Sherman have been through hell. I am so praying that he has made a turn around and is well on the road to his recovery. He is probably exhausted, as you are which is totally understandable. GOD BLESS you all

    talk with your vet about it... if it is that tight, and leads to constant infections, you may not have a choice. But, if it just needs daily cleaning, it is part of the routine (that is may case with Banks... tight, but luckily, never an infection)

    Thank you. I think for now I'll leave it since it doesn't get infected, but sometimes just smells real bad. My Dozer loves a shower and to have it cleaned so it's no big deal to me. I don't mind taking care of his hiney. LOL

    Thanks to all of you for your prayers and positive thoughts. Sherman has recovered and is back with us at home. 14 days of hospitalization and a whopping bill later....infection seems to gone and his tail is healing nicely. His old personality is back. What an ordeal!

    @Jonel

    Your Sherman is one tough fighter and is very lucky to have
    survived such infection. Why won't 'some' doctors listen to
    mother's instinct...we know our babies best! Thank you for
    updating us and give your sweetie a gentle hug from Cami
    & me~GOD bless you!
