Brees, With Her New Roman Nose. Monday, All Better!


Recommended Posts

Monday, all better!

(She actually does have a very slight "bump" on her snout, just before her nose. Very endearing!)

 

And a before pic, for comparison:

She's back to stealing my shoes, so I think it's safe to say she's feeling better! Still have the Clavamox to finish, but I think we're done with pain meds til next time. I'd like more than a month till the next e-vet visit, please!

 

Sorry the pics aren't right. Photobucket is acting dumb!

 

 

 

Saturday pics, after it burst:

The itty-bitty hole all that nastiness came out of!

The pics were taken about 2 hours after it burst on it's own -- after 2 vets told us they couldn't feel anything to lance. It's not hot at all, and she's already killed both stuffies she got at GAA's holiday shop. I'm not quite sure what to do with her from here. I'm really glad she's feeling good, and hope this means she'll be on the mend.

 

 

 

Friday Update:

 

I came home from work tonight to find Brees's nose even more swollen. She's starting to look like a Bull Terrier! The local vet let us bring her in, even though they were about to close. She got a shot of Benedryl, with more to follow at midnight. We're to keep a close eye on her in case she starts having trouble breathing. E-vet if that happens. Vet says if the nose doesn't look 100% better tomorrow morning, we'll be bringing her in for another poking at, more and different antibiotics, and goodness knows what all else. On the plus side, her temp. was only 102, and she's acting fine. (Being nosey, stubborn, and into everything!) Vet was pretty insistent on a rabies booster, so we did that. (She got her rabies shot mid-Sept of this year.)

I got Brees a nose job! Isn't she pretty?

She got a cat last night. I gave her a bath, cleaned everything out, and dribbled betadine in all her wounds. Planned on a vet visit this morning, but our vet was closed due to Sandy, and she seemed fine. The nose swelled up, huge, over about an hour this afternoon, and she felt awful. None of the local vets are open, so it was the e-vet for us. Antibiotics, Tramadol to go with the Rimadyl I was already giving her, and some staples for an "underarm" wound. She put herself to bed after we got home. It's been a couple hours, and she's perked right back up and being a pain in the rear end again. I'm VERY happy about that! (Joe liked her better when she felt funky.)

 

So, I'd really like a Roman-nosed houndie someday, but not like this. Rob's off tomorrow and Friday, so he'll be able to keep up with the hot compresses. My poor, crazy, cat-eating puppy!

 

(The cat wanted to come in after this event. Don't know what happened to it.)

I got bit by a cat a few months ago! It was an absolute nightmare. When I went to MedExpress, the doctor told me that cat bites and scratches are really serious- they can sometimes lead to gangrene and staph. I was on heavy duty antibiotics and Vicodin for the pain. Long story short, I feel your pain, Brees! Get well soon!

Keep up with the compresses, and make sure she doesn't have any obstruction to her breathing.

 

Poor baby! {{{{{smooch}}}}}

Hi Leah! Glad you're ok. We actually never lost power. Very lucky!

 

Brees is well drugged, and feeling much better tonight. She was pitiful yesterday. Didn't even fixate on the cats at the e-vet, so you know she was not herself! I can't believe how quickly the swelling/fever came up. Just an hour from normal, crazy Brees to "Mommy, do we have to go for a ride? Can't I just sleep?" And she laid in my lap almost the whole time at the vets, instead of trying to get into everything like she normally would. Much worse than when she tore her shoulder. This is twice in a month that she's been to the e-vet; they're gonna think I'm a Münchausen's Mommy soon1

 

Don't know if we'll make it Sunday. I still have a cold, and we want to go to GAA's holiday shop. We had a fine time there last year!

Poor little girl! Are you sure that she didn't pickup that nose at the joke shop in Rehoboth? She might be playing you....
