PostSubject: dumped rat   Tue Nov 22, 2011 11:36 am


got up this morning to find a rat in a mucky cage dumped on my doorstep.



poor little guy has the worst wound I have ever seen on his side, it has been left for ages and his skin is rotted and I can see about half an inch inside him, the smell of infection is putrid,



I have cleaned him up as best I can, vet at 12.30, hope they can help him, he is very sweet natured even with all the pain and neglect

the vet named him Bobby, he,s lovely, he's let me clean it with a diluted iodene suspension, it must have really stung, he has also had his first lot of 3 meds and took them wonderfully, bless him, he knows I am helping him.

I have a good feeling he will pull through.

I,ll never be rich but I am very , very rich in other ways, I love my animals

morning, the infection has spread and the two gaping wounds are only joind by rotting skin, it looks and smells horrible.

but... he is on his meds now and getting the wound cleaned, he is reasonably lively and eating well, so fingers crossed his antibiotics will kick in soon.

if I can get rid of the infection he will heal quickly, rats heal amazing well, so please keep everyhting crossed for Bobby

last night I spent over an hour picking out the infection with surgical tweezers and cutting away the dead rotted skin, the hole is so deep, I am amazed he has survived so an aggressive infection. He lay there and let me help him.

today the area is so much cleaner and there is a sign that the infection free areas are already begining to granulate....whooooo.

he is eating and getting around fine, I think he has turned a corner.



I love him and thanks for caring about him guys

A set back today, 2 more abscessess have burst, one on his back and one on his neck, both the size of the old half penny.



I have cleaned them out and got out what infecton I could, It seems that the layer underneath his skin has all been affected, if you lift up the skin you can see from one hole to the next is covered in a layer of infection.

all I can do is bathe it and pick away what infection I can reach, he is still on the meds and remains bright, fingers crossed, he is adorable, poor little guy
