Ok, so it has been a week on anti biotics and anti inflammatories. I have ben given her epsom salt soaks everyday with no improvement. I took her back to the vets today and they gave her an xray and there are no fractures which was good. They said there is an infection but they cant drain it because it's not a pocket of pus and spread out in the tissues and bones so they have given me stronger antibiotics. Does this sound right? I thought you could still lance it? I nearly DIED when I had the bill... I could cry with it all.
