Speedy's Road to recovery update

 I was going to post this yesterday but I decided in the end to wait till today. Don't worry no photos of the Abscess today. After yesterdays cleaning and this mornings clean of the abscess I have to say it did look a little better. There was very little puss this morning which has to be a good thing. 

To start the cleaning process I mix up a little salt in very warm water and soak Speedy's foot to soften up the area so I can get in there with a cotton q-tip ,once I can clean it out properly I then dab it dry with a towel and spray Vetericyn into the hole and fill it up, using a new q-tip I clean it out again to make sure there is nothing mucky left it there and then re-spray the hole again and just leave it to dry.

Vetericyn is antibacterial and anti fungal so will help to kill of any nasty microbes in his wound. I have to say it must be working because Speedy's using his foot more, though it is sore and he holds it up at times to rest it, he is using it to balance when sitting ,eating his food and go toilet and he does walk on it too.

So for Speedy's play area in the kitchen and in his sleep den I did change his bedding to help keep the foot clean. His Litter tray in the kitchen I just line it with a puppy training pad and put some hay on one side for him to eat. In his sleep den I lined the pen with a towel and an old sheet and put some puppy training pads at one end for him to pee and poop on and at the front some hay for him to eat. Rabbits need to eat a lot of hay so he has to have hay in his sleep den and in his litter box in the kitchen, we want to keep his tummy healthy.

So far nothing is getting into the wound so this seems to be working


So I will leave you with this photo of Speedy relaxing this morning and give you and update in a couple of days time. Again thank you for all your well wishes for Speedy

  2. ... lookslike you're making progress, Speedy. Pee-pads were the life savers for Mr. Bun when he couldn't use his pee bin anymore. It's a lot more work, but that's why we're here, Speedy. You'll be thumping with all four before you know it ;-)
