It has been a week since Casper had a little accident. You remember the picture…
… He managed to rip his nail off and get it infected. Typical dramatic hamster.
Anyways, I got him an appointment for yesterday afternoon and the verdict is in!
We saw a very nice male vet who seemed to be a little more thorough with him than the other vet. He examined his toe (the big ugly scab fell off this morning so it looked remarkably clean and healthy) and he said that it looked like it was healing well despite the lack of the antibiotics. He also said the redness of the toe is because the new nail is growing through it making it a little sore, BUT he hasnt nibbled or gnawed on his nail which is a very good sign 🙂
Now onto my main worry; Casper’s seizure.
The vet suggested it could have been a one off, didnt have an explaination as to why, just said as it has only happened once, they can’t assume its anything serious… yet. If it happens again it could be a sign of a brain disease (which sounds super scary 😦 I dont like the thought of my Casper having something seriously wrong with him)
But for now he doesn’t have a worry in the world, which is lovely. I can finally stop fretting over his every movement 😀
He also said that if he was to get another infection another antibiotic would be used incase the original drug caused the fit. He did worry me when he said “but the one he was on tends to be the safest for small furries.” …No more infections or accidents please Cas! I don’t fancy you going on some risky drug!!!
And the vet very nicely didn’t charge me for the visit.
Its been a good day! 😀
