 Robin followup

The smell from the rotting tissue has gotten worse so I took her back today to see the vet who did the surgery. All along the scar was infected and covered rather profusely in puss. When there is an infection present, you cannot seal up or remove necrotic tissue, so you have to clear up the infection first. So she got a shot of Baytril and is now on an even stronger oral antibiotic powder called Tylosin. I asked them to clean the puss from her wounds and the smell is much better for now. I am going to try to bathe her once a day in an epsom salt solution myself.

Since she will not eat, we are feeding her by syringe a mixture of items including puppy milk replacer, Nutri-Cal , Carnivore Care, Ensure and anything else that I can get down her throat. She is with energy now, climbing her cage walls and such, so I hope all of this will enable her to heal.

I am using an old canvas purse as her sleeping area/pouch and I am using paper towels to soak up any puss and blood that seeps out.
