Bodie Needs Your Good Thoughts

When I last updated you, the results of Bodie's skin biopsy seemed to show that he has methicillin resistant staphylococcus. The Ohio State doctors wanted additional skin samples to further narrow the type of antibiotic he should be on.

 

Since that date, Bodie has been steadily on the decline. My vet said he could not do additional skin tests until yesterday, but Bodie was crying, and holding up his sore paw on Friday. It is bright red and looks awful. He is constantly licking it. I contacted OSU and through their Herculian efforts, they convinced my vet practice to assign the case to another vet and moved up the skin tests to last Friday. The skin samples are now being analyzed. OSU also arranged, through my local pharmacy, for me to get a prescription for painkillers for Bodie. They also told my vet what antibiotic to try on Bodie, for the time being. I can't say enough good things about the people there.

 

In the meantime, Bodie is not in as much pain, due to the painkillers, but he is miserable. He refuses to walk on that foot, holds it in the air, and licks it constantly. The antibiotic he is taking doesn't seem to be helping at all. I have another email in to OSU to find out if I should wrap the foot, leave it alone, what can I do to help him, etc.

 

In the meantime, Bodie needs your thoughts, prayers, and good wishes. It is so hard to watch my boy suffer and not know how to help him.
