So happy to say that Kelso is home tonight!!!

We went to the vet at around 6 again, the surgeon and dermatologist had seen him. No surgery or biopsies needed - as he improved so much in the last 24 hours the critical care doc said he could go smile

We just got him tucked in, we created a little apartment for him smile He is on a decreased dose of pred, clinda three times a day and pentoxyphylline as the derm thought he had a vasculitis with an infection. Pain meds as well.
We are doing some "hydrotherapy" which I did with him when we got home...not sure how much he likes that but it keeps his wounds clean.

We see the specialist in 2 days.

He was in some pain when we got home, but seems comfortable now. He has Allie with him so I think that makes him feel better as well. Eating good. The jaw swelling is gone.

I don't know what else to say, just so happy and thankful. He has a long road but he is determined.

thank you all from the bottom of my heart, I truely think all of the thoughts and prayers made such a difference

gotta go pet my dog smile smile smile smile smile WHO IS RIGHT NEXT TO ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is great to read before I go to bed. I'm sure he is as happy to be home snuggling with you as you are!

Oh gosh, this is just great. So happy for you all tonight, what a great night!

Just a slight caution. I've never used clindamycin here, but I know tha in humans, it's one of the abx very well known for triggering clostridium difficile, because it's such a potent abx. Probiotics might be a really good idea. This is the abx that caused my mom to lose her colon, though it wasn't a very healthy colon to start with.

So, so pleased and relieved!! Happy day!
