Thank you Ruth and Lisa! You probably have a better chance than me of finding something...I'm not the best researcher!

I'm in Bairnsdale, Victoria.

Vets comfirmed no one locally. I did pick up a business card at the vets for a equine massage therapy lady so I will call tomorrow and ask if she may be able to help with him.

I did find a natural therapy place for the 2 legged variety so will also call and ask about the possibilty of someone looking at Coop.

The vets do not think it is anything other than a bog standard Hygroma. So no steroids. He came home with more abx. They said although there is still a lump they can actually feel the elbow so chances are, the lump is now scar tissue.

The highlight of the whole crappy saga...he came home with a 'C' on his vet wrap! smile




So I can remove the bandage tomorrow and see what happens now. To be honest I'm not feeling terribly optimistic but time will tell.

And tonight we have severe wind warnings in place and Molly is freaking out, so 3 Xanax later and this is what we have. Yipee frown Is there anybody out there that wants to consider adopting me?!!! laugh

Awwww Coopie!!! So the drains are out now right? I hope that helps him to feel less like messing with his poor elbow. I know you aren't optimistic, but his other elbow is currently fine, right??? So maybe there is hope. crossedfingers

Bianca, I would totally adopt you!!! But your pack needs you too much, what would they all do without you????

Oh my goodness, they would be lost without you hugging

I am hopeful! I will try looking a bit later tonight. You know, massage might even help?

Lol thank you both!

It was a fun night, I turned the lights out around 1am, and then Miss Moo had the munchies (xanax I guess) so she was banging into the gate trying to get into the cats food in the bathroom. Around half an hour later I gave in and gave her a half meal.

Then she decided she needed to go out (in the rain and wind - trees down around here) and was barking madly running around. So we pretty much cuddled on the tiny couch all night. I would have gladly run away last night if I had it in me laugh

Anywhoo Coopers elbow today (now enclosed in his dogleggs). frown

Awww, Cooper! At least he looks like he's taking it all in stride after all he's been through!!

When I got home last night there was a message from our vet who I talked to at the Humane Society fundraiser the other night. He called about Cooper's elbow! He suggested going to the Dogleggs site (he didn't know you had already bought them) and try those after the drains are out. He said he's used those on a few dogs with elbow hygromas and they seem to have helped somewhat - didn't make them go away, but did make them smaller. Just wanted to pass it along! smile

Wow, his fur is growing back already! Has he forgiven you yet? poke

Hope this works out and the Dogleggs do the trick for him.

Bianca, I tried....

a number of acupuncture folks far away from you:
http://www.acuvet.com.au/search_results.php?field=state&search=VIC

and I even search Australian Capital Territory. I don't know if there are any other states close to you that might have someone, but it doesn't look good!

These didn't look good either, but I don't know the geography that well:
http://www.civtedu.org/australia/


I think I found your equine vet, on the right side of the page:
http://www.australianwesternhorseshowcase.com.au/Business/Equine-Therapists.htm
and this looks like the same practice?
http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/bairnsdale/pet-services/relievapet-natural-animal-practice/1002625381

Sorry, that's all I could find!

Oh wow Pat, that is so cool of that vet! Please next time you talk to him, if you could say a big thank you from me! That is amazing somebody would go to such trouble smile

Leah, I'm thinking of shaving his other leg so he has matching Poodle cuts!!!

Lisa, thank you so very much for taking the trouble to look for me hugging I appreciate it very much. I haven't called the Equine lady yet, still running around trying to arrange everything for the move.

I also figured I would rather have the open wounds heal before I try anything with him.

Thank you all again smile

Oh thank you for thinking of my little monster hugging That is so thoughful smile

It is staying steady at golf ball size. He is not bothered by it at all and is pretty much ignoring the Dogleggs now but the last pic shows what he really thinks laugh I don't think it is going away anytime soon.
