So as a few of you know,Hatchet had an accident a few days ago with a glue trap.Well the past couple of days he started limping and his paw was VERRRYYYY tender.He would sometimes walk on it,other times not put any weight on it.
I waited a few days to see if it would get better,because it didn't seem to be an emergency,since he was eating and acting normal for the most part.
Today it has been about a week and he still wasn't using his paw much and still in alot of pain,so I called the vet and asked if I could come in today.
So I took Hatchet in and must say,he was a good boy! He was purring the whole time on the way and most times in the vet! He loved the attention he was getting.He freaked out when the vet had to restrain him to check his leg and x-ray him.He wasn't impressed.
Well his bones and everything there was normal.
The pain he had was abit of soreness,from the glue trap and also there was glue stuck in his fur and on his stomach and that caused some pain as well.They had to shave his leg to get the glue off and accidentally cut his skin,because the glue was really stubborn.
Hatchet now is on pain meds,they are a pill and also cream for his leg.And he has to wear an E-collar until everything heals or when I cannot supervise him,cause he was licking his leg non-stop and we don't want infection.
Anyway all in all,Hatchet's visit went pretty well and I bet having that nasty glue off his leg feels much better and also he is on pain meds now,so he should be fine.
The visit only cost me $155 for everything done today! Not bad.
