So I've continued to treat Gunner's leg with epson salt soak and anti-bacterial ointment, but it seems to be getting worse.
Our vet is an hour away, and I called her to call me something in two days ago, but she didn't do it until today, and she had to MAIL it (she couldn't call something into Walmart). It may not get here until Monday and I honestly don't think it can wait that long, not to mention that the vet wouldn't listen to me when I explained that I didn't think OINTMENT was going to help. The wound is UNDER the skin. In a type of boil or abscess.
It IS open, now, but it's constantly draining and now the fur is looking worse, not better. I don't know what to do!
I am going to try and get him in first thing in the morning in Jasper (the only vet I can find that is open on a Saturday morning), but they may not take him. And I don't know this vet.
I'll post pics in a few minutes, but Gunner way doesn't feel good. He is moping, and his leg is hurting him. He is already in bed sleeping. I've treated it, washed it, and drained it already today. I just don't know what else I can do to try and make it heal. It isn't healing on its own!
