Cyda not quite ready for Hydro-Therapy Yet

Following Cyda‘s knee infection at the site of her internal stitches for her Luxating Patella – see http://www.heronbank.co.uk/2011/07/cydas-knee-problem-update/, she had completed her course of anti-biotics and anti-inflammatories, and seemed to be doing really well.

However, when we took her to the Animal Rehabilitation Centre in Birchencliffe today, Vet Rhona checked her over and found a slight discharge from a scab low down on her leg.

Unfortunately that meant that she could not use the underwater treadmill.

So it’s back with the anti-biotics and salt water bathing, exercises to strengthen her leg, and hopefully back early next week for another session.
