Yesterday morning Dilly smelt very bad.  Her bandages were soaked in bloody lymph and she was beginning to cry.  When I stood her up liquid poured out of the enormous hole that had appeared the day before when the local vet was closed.  I re-bandaged her wound and Thep and myself carefully lifted her into the car.  No mean feat for a dog who weighs 27.05 kilos!.Dilly just sat and looked out of the window and occasionally moved around during the 200 ks drive to Kasesart Veterinary Hosptal in Hua Hin.  We had a long wait but were happy to see the vet who treated Dilly for blood parasites in January was there to look after her again.First we took her to be x-rayed.  There was no need to muzzle her as she was so patient and uncomplaining although Dilly was clearly frightened by what was going on.  She was muzzled anyway and lifted onto the x-ray table and pushed this way and that to get the required x-rays.  Dilly was then taken to the OPD room where her vet was waiting for her.  The following pictures are quite graphic so if you have a sensitive stomach please skip them.  Her wound was sprayed with an analgesic lotion to numb it and the vet started to clean it thoroughly and then cut the dead skin away.  It was a large area exposing Dilly's flesh which the vet washed thoroughly reaching deep inside the wound.  I was amazed to see her use sugar as an infection inhibitor.  The entire procedure  took about an hour and Dilly didn't move, flinch or cry once.  She was a perfect patient.  She was then wrapped in an enormous guaze pad and bandaged up.  After that the vet examined Dilly's front leg which had a very deep wound on the lower part.  I'd been treating it for nearly a week and had attempted to keep infection at bay with constant cleaning, antibiotic cream and injections and bandaging it with clean bandages.  The vet used a myriad of cleansing solutions and antibiotic creams before bandaging the leg again and giving Dilly an antibiotic injection.  Sadly the vet also felt  the probability of Dilly using her front left leg again was very low as after nearly a week since the accident Dilly still had no sensation in it.  But I live in hope as Dilly is such a strong willed dog even if she's not the most intelligent dog in the world.  When the vet had finally completed her  cleaning, bandaging and injecting Dilly was put on a trolly and wheeled to her inpatient cage.  The vet said Dilly would need to stay for one month as an inpatient 'cos her wounds are so bad.  There is a possibility that laser treatment will be used to help speed up the healing process.  At the time of writing I haven't had the chance to contact the hospital to enquire after Dilly's progress but I feel confident she will be doing well in the vet's capable hands.  Dilly's inpatient care and specialist treatment will not come cheaply.  We ask you dog lover's to take Dilly's serious condition to heart and make a donation however small as every penny will be needed to help Dilly pull through her crises.
