Thank you all again hugging

Lol Leah, thank you!!! Yep there have been lots of bad words muttered here!

He is going in tomorrow morning for the drains to be inserted. Any good thoughts for him to leave them alone for at least 14 days would be appreciated please smile

Poor Cooper - and you!

Any thoughts on getting a second opinion as to why this is happening and continuing??

That is my thought, too. It isn't easy to do, but maybe finding a vet who may be able to determine if there's something in there, bone chip, etc., or if it's simply the contact with the hard flooring? Really just want you and handsome Coopie-boy to be okay and through with this! hugging

Thank you all, I really do appreciate you hugging

Pat, yes this is his left elbow this time. When this all first happened (in January?) his left had a small amount of fluid but since then it has all been the right elbow.

Natalie and Patti, thank you but he has now seen 4 or 5 vets regarding this. They all say it is one of those things and that Hygromas can be bi-lateral. So I don't think I am going to hear anything different frown

The only slight positive is that the scar tissue from the drains (right) seemed to have worked. There has been no more fluid build up on that side.

I am just dreading having to keep on and change the dressings, he would try and hide from me the last time. I am so over it and I realise that compared to so many others with serious health concerns, this is minor. But so frustrating.

And it's midnight here and I just realised he will wake me up in 6 hours and can't have his breakfast.....oh oh! I might have to hide from him in the morning laugh

ETA : And we have been in our new house for coming up 5 weeks and because it is so cold, he does not sleep on the hard flooring anymore so it can't be that causing it. He has slipped a few times, thus he now has boots but the vet on Monday said this was not a hematoma so I don't know.

Too late to edit but he has also had both elbows x-rayed and checked by 1 general vet and 2 specialists and they are fine apparently.

May these last two weeks of misery (his and yours!) be THE END OF THE STORY!!!!! crossedfingers I know how you must be dreading this, since it sucked so badly the last time. I suggest you coat yourself in bacon every time you need to change the dressing. wink

I am so sorry to read that Mr Cooper has more elbow problems. I hope this side is more quickly fixed by the vet.

Hugs to you - it must be so so discouraging and upsetting for you. hugging

Thank you all very much hugging

The surgery went well and he is still wobbly and sleepy wub They put a donut thingee over the gauze but under the vet wrap. Hoping with the D'leggs he may leave it alone!

Last night

Sleepy puppy

Big donut under wrap

Gorgeous Coopie looks sleeeepyyyyy! wub I am hoping that after this recovery, that he does wonderfully! I imagine the donut anhd dressings will help, and him resting as much as he can will help. The DogLeggs are great, paws crossed that all the padding cushions nicely as he bounces right back from this surgery! He's so young and has the best Mum caring for him, too. goodjob

Poor Cooper, just looking at his sweet face makes me want to give him a big hug and kiss on the nose. That poor little guy has been thru so much in his short life, hope this is the end of elbow problems!!!
