Long Over-due

Sorry to have been away for so long...especially since I promised an Emmy update after her vet appointment Thursday.

Here is the good news: the leg is not least, we are fairly certain it is not.

Here is the bad-ish news: the vet DID find creptis on the outside of her leg, which can be indicative of either an infection or a break in the bone (and can sometimes be seen with open wounds but that isn't the case here.) The other bad-ish news is that the creptis comes and goes, which means that air is moving around under her skin.

The diagnosis was a localized infection which the SMZs have kept at bay, but not effectively treated. We started her on penicillin for 5 days and Animalintex wraps for 3 days. Today is day 4 and her leg looks ALMOST normal!

So tired though from working a local A rated hunter/jumper show...more later.



  1. Glad to hear there is some progress on Emmy's leg. How's Johnny doing?

  2. Thanks Laura! He's been really good, although it's been raining so much here lately that I haven't been able to get a whole lot of work done with him lately. I will update with a new post tonight!
