Thursday night had us at the emergency vet where they removed the rope (thank god), cleaned the wound, and bandaged him.
Friday morning had us at the normal vet for a check-up, bandage changing, and test to see if we will have to amputate. His prognosis for keeping the leg is poor, less than 50% chance. I have a whole list of steps and medications and I have to do water therapy on the wound with a water pik twice a day for the next 7 days until his checkup, and possibly for another month after that. They say if anything can save his leg it's the water treatment. So I AM hopeful and won't give up!
Cross your fingers for the little Gimp-ster that he can keep his leg!
Also, the vet bills are piling up. I'm running a Christmas in July sale in my shop and all jewelry sales will go towards Gimpy's vet bills and his care. If you can help in any way, it will be a lifesaver. Literally.
I will update more later but for now, Gimpy says good morning from my husband's big, comfy chair!!
