So, the protocol moving forward is to put him on an oral steroid that will hopefully chip away at that nasty bump and eventually return him to full normality. We can't start the steroid until Monday because of the other meds that he's been taking but within 2 weeks we should know something. That is the next trip to the vet. Oh how we love pouring pounds into the Royal Veterinary College of London. To be fair, they've been great, but still! £££££
The wound looks OK...still bleeds a bit but the vet said that it is only a superficial wound at this point and should heal quickly. This means that he only has to wear the cone overnight and whilst we are gone, until the scab has completely disappeared. Hurray! He is resting this morning, cone free for the first time in 3 weeks!
Tanner continues to be his happy, silly self and for this we are truly grateful. I'm sure he's ready to start playing in the park again and be out on proper walks. He continues to feel quite indignant about the foxes in our back garden but cannot root around back there just yet. Poor guy has really been a bit cooped up during these recovery weeks.
The steroids are the last treatment we'll try for now. He'll be on them for a month. I just hope they don't make him hyper or stronger. He definitely doesn't need any help in those departments!
We love our canine pup! Here's to better health for Mr. Tan Man!
