The photo looks horrible, very painful is my thought. I know you hope like heck that you are wrong and I hope you are, too. Please let us know how it goes after your vet visit.

I'm just popping in again to offer words of encouragement and support for you and Skye, and to let you know that I continue to send positive, healing energy for Skye. I know just how scary the idea of PFs is. I went through it with my last senior dog. May this turn out to be something different, and more easily manageable than you suspect.
You and Skye together have brought so much joy to those who are ailing. May Skye's diagnosis and treatment be much better than you anticipate. Sending positive vibes for a smooth recovery and much better condition for her back end. Positive energy is on the way!

G'morning Bonnie, just checking in. How are you two this morning?

I have no idea if the cyclosporin is implicated in this at all. For Max it is, doesn't seem to be true for other dogs, but I was curious.

That surgical paper is kinda old, 1998, and from a surgical perspective, so there are some things in there that are not right.

She'll key off a lot of your attitude too, so remember to play with that fishy!!

Oh - I just attached the link for the pictures, not the information.

Unfortunately, except for emergencies both MedVet and StonyRidge are closed until tomorrow. I will all then to get an appointment. I know I can get right into Stonyridge - MedVet may take longer.

I am leaning toward StonyRidge hoping to get in Wednesday right after work.

I could also go to my regular vet - but I am not as comfortable with them for things out of the ordinary.

You're doing the food change, and starting on the zinc ointment, so that's a start in treatment.

Some folks will use cortisone cream if it seems really itchy or inflamed. I tend to favor Preparation H for inflammation and discomfort, but Max's aren't red externally, his have holes where you can see the tunnel inside, it's a bit different.

This really sucks.
