* * *Hello! I wanted to give you an update on how well our Cleo has been doing since my 1st blog.
She is doing so much better after our getting a 2nd opinion from a Vet who still couldn't tell us what the sore was exactly (just that it's not cancerous..which is very important and a relief to know) but who offered a bubble collar to keep Cleo from biting at her sore and also provided antibacterial wipes...which didn't work nearly as well as...simply, Hydrogen Peroxide! My 12yr old suggested this and as you will see in pics below, it has helped the sore heal immensely! Please disregard the spots on Cleo's coat; she had just run through some tall grass and flowers. Nothing to do with her sore.
As you can see in the pictures, the spot is no longer red, oily, or pussy looking. It used to be raised up from her skin and felt like a tiny hockey puck. But now it is a lot smaller, has recessed down, and is no longer red and infected looking. Sore shriveling up to a small thin scab. It's almost paper thin!
Thank you so much to the basenji community for your support. This our 1st dog and I really felt supported by you and those on the Basenji blog who responded.
Sayida...so grateful, and Cleo..happier and healthy!
