Guest charmsmom Posted August 11, 2008 Share Posted August 11, 2008 Somehow, Diamond tore an inch-square hole in her leg last night without making a peep. I took her to the e-vet and turns out something had pierced her skin and gone a good length of her leg without tearing a further hole, so her hock down is bruised. They stitched her up, put a drain in, and gave her 750 mg of Cephalexin for 7 days. Not a great pic, but you can see it... The people at the e-vet were all really nice, and it was only $227 (OUCH). But the people were all really great and LOVED her and told me how great a patient she was. They were very wary of sedating her at her age, so I suggested a local and the vet agreed to try that and it WORKED. So, now comes the advice part.... The Cephalexin is upsetting her tummy, and I was wondering if it's okay to give her Famotidine to fix it. It's obviously NOT an option to let her not eat at 11. Poor girl had a tough night and she's tired, so I need to get some food in her. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
