Dutchy's foot (kinda gross)

Dutchy went to get his bandages removed yesterday. After the vet tech took them off and cleaned the wounds (OMG) she realized, there were no large E collars because they'd been back-ordered. Doc radioed in from his large animal call to ask how they looked, and said to just rewrap them and come back Thursday - he didn't want Dutchy licking them too much. Well, her wrap job left a lot to be desired ... by 7 o'clock the one had slipped down, so the poor guy had this big flappy thing hanging off his foot. So, I went to Walmart, got some stuff, and wrapped it myself. He had it ripped off this morning
So, still half asleep, I ran up to work (my day off) and my boss hunted around till she found me an E collar (Gosh, I love that woman). I left the one bandage on, but I'm just leaving the other un-wrapped. So here's his footie - in this one, you can see where it degloved a bit. His nails are all crooked because they're loose in the nail beds.

He hates the E collar so he's a bit unhappy today.

Oh! Bless his heart! Poor Dutchy... He looks so upset in the last picture. How long will he have to have the E collar on?

I hope he heals quickly....give him kisses from me!

I just called the vet - they were just about to call me because the E collars came in. She said to go ahead and unwrap the other one ... brace yourselves for this one ... the worst on this foot is actually where he has a puncture wound on the bottom between his pads. That gross looking nail isn't a nail - just the quik ...

Poor baby, huh ? I can't even imagine how those nails must feel ! They said they may fall out, or the nail beds may heal around them. The exposed quik should grow a new nail around it.

I messed with that first pic to get the shadow out - and it looks much better than it really is ... here's the original picture. You can kinda see better why this is the foot that doc's most concerned about ...
