I'm glad that he seems good! Do watch carefully when the abx are done, in case he needs to be back on them asap. Hopefully he will be done with this and that's it!

The surgeon may want him on abx before the hip surgery?

Sounds like things are going in the right direction! There is still a month to go before the surgery right? Hopefully if the infection plans on returning (and hopefully it doesn't), you will know well in advance of the operation. I agree with Lisa about keeping an eagle eye on things and keeping the Otho surgeon informed too. Fingers crossed.

Thank you Lisa and Leah!

I emailed the surgeon last night and explained that I may be paranoid but here is a list of all the health issues Cooper has had and the latest is really concerning me prior to him having an implant.

My phone rang this afternoon and the first words I heard "you are not paranoid"!!! Made me laugh, but anyway he said he is not concerned by all the previous issues but this one is a worry.

He must have called my vet too. He said he would not be comfortable going ahead with the THR if this remains unresolved. Ie: never do find a bloody grass seed. So if nothing changes then he will most likely have to have a head MRI in a month before anything happens.

Thanks again hugging

Tomorrow night is the last day of abx so we will see. And yes my vet had already said that abx at least a few days before surgery is a must.

The surgeon said to keep him up to date and that he has asked Andrew (normal vet) to do the same.

Very glad he is right on top of this! I am jealous that you can e-mail him lol. I would pay money for the ability to e-mail my vet or Rosa's surgeon.

Well, having to do another procedure (and an expensive one) before getting to the surgery is a bummer, but considering it could be fatal if there was a lurking infection I don't see that you have much of a choice. You just can't take chances with that kind of thing.

Oh Cooper, you are working on becoming the most expensive dog on the forum aren't you??

I am sorry to read there may be a delay but I am glad your vet and surgeon are taking the safest route and putting Cooper's health first before the THR. Cooper certainly cannot take a trick. You are in my thoughts. hugging

Really Leah? I thought emailing vets was normal laugh I find it so much easier as I never can write fast enough all their answers when they call!

I had to rofl at the most expensive dog!!!! It's that or cry!

Thank you and Alison, I appreciate it hugging

It's actually tomorrow morning his last abx. But just before I was watering my vege garden so wasn't actually watching, but Coop had his Jolly ball and then he yelped frown So I don't know if it was his mouth or hip.

I have never thought to email either but it is a great idea as you can read and reread the information and look up things if you need more details. Technology can be a wonderful thing! laugh

I have actually asked for an e-mail address for my vet...and got turned down lol. Either they are behind the times or they feel like it would be giving out free services if we could ask questions via e-mail.

Sorry he still might be having pain. Do you have a follow up appointment for him with your regular or is it a "wait and see if it comes back" kind of situation?

Thinking of you guys, hope that his jaw and eye are all better. With such a serious issue, I would have thought a full two weeks at least for the abx. Or have I lost track of time and it has been two weeks?

No follow up, I think the vet knows by now I will be on his doorstep asap if needed laugh

No Lisa, you are right, he started abx last Thursday (inj at the vet) and finished this morning. He seemed fine so far today...
