Re: Vaginal bleeding had 3 injections for Pyometra

Got there under emergency to only have the quack vet on at the time. *sigh* She said theres nothing she can do but inject baytril (I declined obviously) I told her what it can do and she said in very very rare circumstances. (I don't know how rare it is but i'm still not risking it) I got her home a...

Re: [Images] Tumor/abcess in groin region? (Buck)

He seems to be fine, i've just checked his scab before taking a look I don't think I can peel it off :sick: but it doesn't feel like theres anything building up behind it. He's on baytril anyway for it.

Re: Vaginal bleeding had 3 injections for Pyometra

Shes taking a turn for the worst, she had 1.5ml of dog metacam around 3PM and was having a walk around on my bed around 7pm and eating a dry wheetabix. She was also put on baytril via water. I've just checked on her now at 4AM she seemed to be sleeping shes now laying and seems to have either wet he...

Re: [Images] Tumor/abcess in groin region? (Buck)

Just an update, it burst in the carry case up to the vets. He pulled a minging minty green scab off which didn't look pus colored, got him home and gave it a clean up. It was bleeding fairly. Will do the advice followed until it heals. Thanks everyone.

Re: Vaginal bleeding had 3 injections for Pyometra

Home and still looking sleepy after the operation was this morning, he's dosed her up on metacam. Hopefully she will be alright.

Re: Vaginal bleeding had 3 injections for Pyometra

Had a call from the vets earlier, shes went through the surgery and it was a pyo. Will have to pick her up at 4ish due to her being at the other surgery at the moment and (i think) not open to public.

Re: [Images] Tumor/abcess in groin region? (Buck)

I'd be worried squeasing it if it's an abcess, I'm aware abcesses can have a "backlash" and can potentially poison the blood stream of the animal/person with them if they're popped, I think the vet should syringe it if so and perhaps antibiotics afterward to avoid it from coming back, no?

[Images] Tumor/abcess in groin region? (Buck)

Just picked up Rou for a cleanout and seen this on him, got some photo's. I think it's an abcess i've not messed with it to take a look. (I worry it'll hurt) I recall one of my first rats having something similar. He's not been on any medication recently or shown any signs of issues. Can't tell if h...

Re: Vaginal bleeding had 3 injections for Pyometra

Well..there was a good reason why he didn't book me in for wednesday, he's NOT IN. The 20 odd year old vet who's never did the surgery was in. So I have to do that 3 mile walk again tomorrow. I'm tired out and I feel worse for Kiwi, she wouldn't stay in my coat for warmth.

Re: Vaginal bleeding had 3 injections for Pyometra

Appointments pushed forward for tomorrow, although I feel a bit of a fraud lying to them saying that shes looking lethargic :\ Note: Asterisks used to circumvent the swear filter replaced by acceptable word. Replacing a letter by another character to circumvent the swear filter does not make it okay.

Re: Vaginal bleeding had 3 injections for Pyometra

Debz gives good advice :) If you can't get the op brought forward maybe see if they'll give her a strong combo of abs before surgery, especially if she has a lot of infection going on, we've normally been prescribed a high dose of Baytril and Synolux/or Ceporex and tyr I don't think I can get it br...

Re: Vaginal bleeding had 3 injections for Pyometra

Kiwi's been booked in for thursday for spaying. He took a urine test and said there was a lot of infection there. Shes still on the baytril as Spice is consistantly on it.

Re: Vaginal bleeding had 3 injections for Pyometra

It had seemed to "dissapear" after the blood cleared up after the injections. As far as the vet was concerned she was all clear. I hadn't seen any blood in the bedding, hammocks etc until seeing her the other night with some minor drops. Can they just disappear without any blood or discharge for a w...
