|Fritz is worse. I took him back to the vet yesterday for a checkup and bandage change. The stitches didn't open up, but the skin over the wound died and became narcotic. Our vet had expected some skin die off, but not to the extent that was found. We also found a shoulder wound hidden in his fur. The vet removed the stitches, derided the wound, and cleaned up the shoulder wound. They went over him again carefully and found several hot spots caused by getting the skin scraped and his thick coat. I haven't been able to groom him since the accident.
They are keeping him until at least Wednesday afternoon, the vet wants to make sure it is healed enough that Fritz will let me change the bandages and clean his wound.
Thank you for your support, I will look for vitamin E oil and ask the vet about the preparation H and wet to dry bandages. I also have to get him some Tee-shirts to help keep his shoulder and scrapes clean.
