Thanks Middle. I'm afraid I can't go all the way to the Feed and Fuel right now where they might have that product. Eli is really slowing down, he might be shutting down.

Rosa, I would try alternating cold and warm packs. Alternating heat and cold helps the tissue to expand and contract to help reduce swelling. Cold First then Heat.

Thanks Val, I wondered about the heat. I will start alternating them now!!! It is still really swollen and he's really struggling to walk. I gave him extra Tramadol this morning hoping that will help.

Keeping Eli and you in my thoughts. hugging I hope the extra Tramadol helps. Please keep us posted if there's any changes.

Thanks everyone. Just a quick update. His leg is still really swollen but I think the swelling has gone down some... not a lot, but some. I'm doing the cold/heat treatments and I think the increase in Tramadol has helped some.

He's able to walk a little bit better than yesterday but it's not very comfortable for him. Still that is better than yesterday. He did wake up in the living room today wanting a cookie. He got up, slowly stumbles over to me in the dining room with 'that look' he shows when he really wants a cookie. Of course, he got his cookie. He always gets his cookie. I was thankful to see him do that today thinking he must be feeling a bit better.

Rosa, glad hot/cold + meds is helping. Keep in mind horse liniment can be found at pet supply stores, too. Or purchased on line.

Thankfully, the swelling has gone down quite a bit and Eli is able to move a bit better. groovy He wanted to try a walk today but I made him stop when we got to the sidewalk. I felt it was way too soon for him to be walking and there still is some swelling that needs to go down. I'm still giving him the increased amount of Tramadol.

I know I forgot to mention it earlier, but the Vet did take some cells from whatever came out when she poked it with a needle. We will have those results in about a week. I tend to think its like she said, a soft tissue injury. With cold/heat the swelling has gone down.

I did have to make some changes in the house here. At night he is now limited to the kitchen, part of the hallway and my bedroom. I block off the rest. This way its much easier for me to keep clean and yet it gives him some choices.

His spirits are great. Today I took Kody to daycare so Eli had me all to himself this afternoon. I gave him a special treat to chew on and lots of yummy treats to enjoy. We so enjoy our time together.

Well he's looking at me right now so I guess it's time for his massage. Better go but thanks for reading.
