Sore paw :(

Hally injured her paw and got an infection as a result. Her dignity was hurt badly at the vet but she did get a nice new shoe out if the deal

Paw thing

Slightly off topic

My little Yorky is limping at the moment, no sign of damage to the paw, but should things get worse - is there a walk in vet in Zurich ?

I hope she has a speedy recovery. Glad you could find a shoe to fit.
Have been throught this before and again this week, same dog has a small cut. She starts to work on it right away so I put on a baby slipper with a velcro band...works like a charm. I use antibiotic cream as well. The underside of the paws take a long time to heal, according to the vet.

Not guaranteeing it but I think the one in the new building on Hagenholzstrasse in Oerlikon has open surgeries.

Re: Sore paw :(

Have you seen the smiley-face bandages? (One friend joked that the vets spent time drawing the smiley faces on their bandages.) Here is fur face none too smiley after a procedure (can't remember for what now):

The smiley face bandages are imported from the US and are expensive. I bought CO FIX self sticking stuff at the pharmacy for a lot less and it stuck better. There is another brand (no happy faces) that the vet in Luzern used that I found quite good. I really like the choice of yellow bandage there Argus. Very fashionable.

Why? We are talking about how wounds are treated and covered, sharing our collective wisdom from experience. We are not just showing pictures.

Do you have anything to contribute on topic?

One thing about the self stick stuff - when it gets old, it gives off its color onto the dog. I had a nice red roll from qualipet and I used it after a year or so. It stuck ok, but when I removed it, lily's fur was red where the bandage had been. No pics, unfortunately. ;-p

UTH, for after-hours emergencies, call the Tierspital:

http://www.kltmed.uzh.ch/aboutus/Notfall.html

Call the Notfall number to speak with the vet on call, he/she will determine if it warrants a visit, or advise you over the phone.

Bob, is Hally sporting a Sabro shoe?

Those were my old boy Melon's favorites. (Melon had a shoe collection to rival Imelda Marcos... )

Hope Hally's paw heals quickly.

Thanks for letting us know. We had red once on one of the dogs, but just for a day. I guess perspiration will cause the colour to run.

Maybe the manufacturer had pipe dreams of causing the leg or paw to run again, too.

(Sorry, off topic, Mploymi.)

Yep, that's the one. It has two velcro fastenings. Hally is (obviously) a border collie. Took her about 10 secs to work that one out. Now considering superglueing it on her.

Then again, she ain't that bright - thinks antibiotic pills are doggy treats .

What I like about all the pics in the thread is the common look of indignation.

Made me laugh, that comment I remember our Newf always puckered his considerable cheeks to look like I'd just made him swallow 3 lemons, instead merely gently bathing and bandaging his paw(s). Ohh, the indignity of it all!

You mean the post-surgery massively "Don't Like" face as well (complete with undignified incision-protection bodysuit - "dogma, how dare you take my picture too?")?

Yeah - that's the one! When we had his masculinity snipped and he had to waddle around with a shaved underbody (before it was fashionable) and little remnants of ball-skin coloured pale blue (antiseptic spray) the look on his face was to die for.

Ah, this is one of the times when having a melon-headed collie could work to one's advantage. Poor Melon couldn't for the life of him figure out why things were attached to his feet, let alone how to get them off. He just sat there, moo'ing pitifully...

...which would bring his sister a-running. Hooligan, guardian of her brother's dignity and (sometimes-evil ) genius, would then remove the offending articles forthwith.

(We suspect that Melon may not have been quite as simple-minded as he appeared, as he managed to live most of his life excused from learning the 'hard' stuff, while his clever-clogs sister ran around doing his bidding. )

---

Vet wrap around the shoe, covering the velcro closure, should give you an additional 10 seconds before Hally works out her next escape act.

Mine on the other hand, does the look of resignation very well. Poor bugger post snip having a go at emotional blackmail. I couldnt look at him in the eye for a couple of days
