Spider Bite Puppy
For those of you that read and saw the pictures in another thread I just want to give an update on the puppy that had the spider bite, her owner writes:
"Thanks to everyone who is continuing to send Dani good thoughts.
This is her wound progress after almost 3 wks of treatment. Doesn't it look better? Our newest worry was her right hind leg which she stopped putting any weight on and carried loosely this week. I was sure it was muscle or nerve damage, but the vet says she has some infection in that knee. He drew some fluid off, upped her antibiotics, recommended hot pack treatments 3X day and thinks she will be much better by next week.
Dani just turned 6 wks old and has had a hard life so far, but she is totally resilient.
She is playing, running (on three legs mostly) and sounds like the Tazmanian Devil when any other dog approaches her rear end. The other dogs are all scared of her. It was funny to begin with, but I think I'm gonna have to get her under control a little, lol.
She is so spoiled that she pretty much howls when we put her down. After all I have had to do to her, she still loves me and her tail wags ninety miles per hour when I come to get her.
She is truly a little miracle and we think she is the cutest puppy ever.
In reference to the recent string of posts about vets taking advantage of caring owners, my vet is absolutely the best ever. We have had 4 or 5 visits for this bite and it has cost me a total of $58.00 so far. How spectacular is that? He is totally amazed at Dani's progress and truly loves his patients."
What a changes since the last photo!!!!!!!!
